This season the club entered 9 teams in the summer competition – 8 teams playing on Mondays and 1 mixed team playing on Fridays. Here are the results of our placegetters:
Pre Xmas Championship Round
- KU2 won Grade 3 (Sally Marett captain, Pip Groom, Erin Hunter, Deb Petersen, Helen Wong)
- KU6 won Grade 5 (Jo Botica captain, Sheryl Thornton, Julie Fitzgerald, Suellen Matheson)
- KU1 (captained by Sue Fitzgerald) came 2nd in Grade 2
- KU4 (captained by Barbara Templeton) came 3rd in Grade 4.
Post Xmas Competition Round
- KU2 (captained by Sally Marett) came 2nd in Grade 2/3
- KU7 (captained by Alison Phua) came 2nd in Grade 5/6
- KU5 (captained by Shelly Best) came 3rd in Grade 4/5.
Special mention goes to KU2, which narrowly missed winning Grade 2/3 by 2 points, after leading by 2 points going into the final round.
Also to KU8, a wonderful display of team spirit, hard training and perseverance that saw them perform competitively and cemented their right to be in the competition. Well done for their first season of interclub.
Congratulations, however, go to all our teams for playing their absolute best throughout the season and gaining valuable experience each time they went out on court. Well done!
