Glen Innes Open
Two of our top Lismore juniors were successful in taking out the Open mens and ladies singles titles at the Glen Innes annual Open Tournament last weekend.
Luke Edwards continued his recent run of wins, comfortably taking out the mens title. Edwards aggressive game is built around a dominant forehand and an improving serve, which should see him continue his success as he travels to Sydney for two tournaments in the Australian Money Circuit later this year. Rosie McWilliam ended a long run of frustrating form at Glen Innes to defeat Kristy Jones in the ladies title. Another local, Taylor Moore, took out her first senior titles with wins in two singles and a doubles event.
Clunes Tennis Club
The committee at Clunes has decided to renew their three synthetic grass courts in March. The club runs several very successful comps and club activities each week, and with plenty of juniors being coached at the courts, the future for Clunes Tennis Club looks bright. The Eltham tennis courts are also about to undergo an overhaul with the laying of synthetic on the old hardcourts opposite the Eltham Friendly Inn.
Local juniors are reminded of the Junior Development Series, which runs from this Sunday, February 18, through to May 13. All the relevant information and contact details for entering are on our new regional website. Simply go to the Tennis NSW home page (www.tennisnsw.com) and follow the links.
