2016 Club Championships

2016 Club Championships

Posted on Friday, November 11, 2016 

Last weekend the Old Bar Tennis Club conducted its annual club championships more commonly known as the Seaside Tennis Classic. The event attracted 65 players throughout the Manning Valley and district. This was a slight increase over previous years and still remains one of the more popular tennis tournaments in this area. Despite weather warnings to the contrary the tournament was played in near ideal conditions. Fortunately, Friday night’s Special event which attracted a field of 10 (with teams made up of an adult and a junior) narrowly avoided being hit by a storm which dumped 31 mm of rain in Taree as well as 14mm at Mitchells Island.

All events contested were run on a round robin basis, generally the first to 6 games with a tie-breaker if the score reached 5-all. On Sunday afternoon the winner of each pool, or the winner and runner up (where there was only 1 pool), contested the finals. The finals consisted of two sets, and in the case of being one set all the first to a 15 point tie-breaker decided the result.

Once again this year the tournament was sponsored by Club Old Bar, and the Tennis Club thanks them for their continued support. Newly elected President of Club Old Bar, Trevor Wisemantel, was on hand to present the trophies at the conclusion of the finals.

This year the boy’s annual sportsmanship award went to Bevan Smith of Mitchells Island, while the girls award went to Jamie Smith (no relation) but also of Mitchells Island.

The Club wishes to thank all those who helped in the running of the tournament and making it such a family based success.
