Junior Club Champ Singles were played during the week of April 4th.

Numbers were good through the 10s and 12s grade boys and girls. 14s boys were also well represented.   Having matches and age bands spread over numerous days worked well and having the finals on the one day was a great way to finish the season with parents and players watching.

The finals day and presentation was very well attended given the circumstances.

The WTC Senior Singles club champs were held on 9 April with the day sporting idyllic tennis weather. Four events took place, commencing at 9:30m. The Women’s Open was well contested, but the most popular event was the Men’s B Grade with 16 entrants.


The day went exceedingly well, with players and spectators alike enjoying the tennis and atmosphere. Lloyd’s slightly odd vantage point was noted.


Highlights included:

  • Mark Gilbert doing a marathon effort with 3 matches back to back, all the while playing great tennis.
  • Stephen Campen and Nick Bray abiding the gentlemanly approach, politely chatting for 5 minutes during end changes.
  • The inclusion of the young Margo Dalling in the Women’s B grade.
  • The Men’s Open was much enjoyed by spectators, particularly the final between Simon Mooney and Ben Hyde-Smith. It was a tremendously hard-fought final.
  • In the Women’s Open final, Freya Maguire played a very well-thought, low error game against Noriko Burra who chased down every ball.

The Club Captains and Manager would like to thank everyone for their participation and making the day a great one.

What a great start to the New Year for one of our young up and coming players, Tom Dawson. After coming close in recent tournaments, he picked up his first singles title at the Marlborough Junior Summer Open in late January, winning the 10s Boys’ singles final in straight sets.
Tom loves his Tennis, is always down at the club practising and it’s so rewarding for him to see his efforts coming to fruition.
We are all very proud of him and all the Waimairians who took part in the summer series of tournaments.
