After a great year on and off the Tennis Court at Essendon Tennis Club it was time to celebrate, and we had our Christmas Celebration this past Sunday!
Luckily the weather held off on Sunday the 1st of December and we had a great crowd come to the club to celebrate the wonderful achievements of our juniors throughout 2019.
Some of the highlights of the second half of 2019 included-
- The Introduction of Club T-shirts
- Having 6 of our 11 teams made the semi-finals
- 2 Teams making the Grand Final, one Friday Night and one Saturday Morning Team
- Special Mention to our D Special 1 Unisex Team who won the Grand final against Doutta Galla 36 – 12 and to A Reserve 3 who came Runners Up to West Brunswick
- The introduction of scoreboards on each court to help the kids keep scoring and so supporters can keep track
We celebrated in style with a BBQ, plenty of Music, the kids played on the Jumping Castle and used the Serving Radar to test their Serving Speed. We also heard from most of the team managers on how each teams journey went throughout the season. Each of the teams that made the Grand Final received their Club medals and we also had a raffle with some great prizes including a Tennis Bag and some vouchers from our local community.
The final standings for all our teams are below;
- A Special combined with Coburg – 3rd
- The A Grade 1 combined with St Christophers – 6th
- Our A Grade 2 – 2nd
