We are at the midway point of our Junior Competition at Essendon Tennis Club. With 10 teams playing on Friday night and Saturday we are proud to have over 80 kids representing the club each week.
Some highlights of the season so far
- A young new team of players joined the Green Ball Level in D Grade 5, the team all practice together in their lessons and have shown what great communication and teamwork they have. They currently sit on 1st on the ladder and are undefeated!
- The combined teams of D Special 3, C Reserve 1, C Grade 3 and B Grade 1 have all had mixed results but have been very competitive each week and we have seen huge improvements in their doubles play!
- Our 2 A Grade 3 teams have been working hard (we hope we can have an all Essendon Grand Final in a couple months) and they sit 3rd and 4th respectively looking to make the finals
- Last seasons runners up from A Reserve 4 have moved up a grade but still performing wonderfully sitting on top of the ladder!
- The Boys team who won their respective final last year have moved up and are being challenged by a high level of tennis, they are being very competitive and learning a lot
- Our 2 highest graded teams are sitting in 7th and 2nd respectively
Good luck to our teams for the remainder of the season, keep having fun, learning and competing and hopefully we can have a few more teams join the current 5 that are in finals contention!
