The semi-finals of the Australian Junior singles will be played today at 10am and 11.30am.
The Final will be played at 2pm not 2.30pm as originally advertised.
Congratulations to Simon Lee and Alex Crellin who got the tournament off to a great start yesterday.
Playing the first match Alex defeated Simon 6/4 4/6 6/4 with Simon saving six match points as he fought his way back from 5/1 down in the final set.
Both players were playing their first National Tournament and we look forward to many more.
Alex Colbert and Pat Bradfield each won a round before succumbing to stronger interstate players in the Quarter Finals.
During the afternoon we were treated to a high class practice session involving Michael and Daniel Williams, Al Ramsay, Hilton Booth and Paul Rosedale.
These young players will soon be the best players in the country which means they will be representing Australia in future Bathurst Cup competition.
The Bathurst Cup is the ‘Davis Cup’ of Lawn Tennis and a highly regarded prize.
Last Friday night we had a very entertaining New Members and Junior welcome evening and thanks to Christine Stirling, Ron and Hilton Booth for all their organisational prowess.
Thanks also to the four ‘seasoned’ participants, Graham Hyland, Pete Boyles, Al Ramsay and Barry Toates for providing a highly entertaining exhibition match.
Don’t forget: 2pm this afternoon (Sunday) for the Junior Final
