As we pass the midpoint of the 2021 Winter season we look at how the eight Veneto teams are situated for the ERT Sunday morning competition. Currently, we have four teams that would qualify for finals at this stage but there are several other teams that can qualify for finals with a strong second half of the season. We wish all the teams the best of luck for the rest of the season.
Open Rubbers 2
McCainne Askandar, Allanna Askandar & Adriana Askandar are playing this season in Open Rubbers 2 and are currently 4th on the ladder with 33.5 points and 112.61%. There are only seven points split between 1st and 4th so the top end of the ladder can change in the later stages of the season. This is the first season the Askandar family has played for the Veneto Club in the ERT competition.
Open Rubbers 3
Alex Jennings & Adam Scutella are playing this season in Open Rubbers 3 and are currently 6th on the ladder with 19.5 points and 104.90.%. Alex and Adam were previously playing in Open Rubbers 5 last season so it is great to see Adam and Alex progress into a higher section. They are currently 6 points behind 4th spot on the ladder.
Open Rubbers 5
Ryan Liu, Leo Prapas and Yuvin De Silva are playing this season in Open Rubbers 5 and currently sitting 5th on the ladder with 25.5 points and 67.24%. This is the first time the three boys have played junior competition in the ERT representing the Veneto Club. The team is only 3 points behind Kew for 4th spot on the ladder.
Open Rubbers 6 Green
Gemma Angerosa, James Saviane & India Fuga are playing this season in Open Rubbers 6 and are currently placed 6th on the ladder with 12.5 points and 27.12%. This is the first time we have had two teams in the same section. We wish both teams the best of luck for the second half of the season.
Open Rubbers 6 Blue
Nathan Tirtawijaya, Mack Seabrook & Hayden Teh are playing this season in Open Rubbers 6 and are currently placed 7th on the ladder with 9 points and 43.45%. This is the first time the 3 players are playing in the open rubbers section in the ERT competition. Both teams are continuing to improve each week.
Open Rubbers 8
Lucas Wong, Cici Song & Ilaria Romeo are playing this season in Open Rubbers 8 and are currently placed 7th on the ladder with 10.5 points and 5.56%. This is the first time any of the players have played junior competition and they are continuing to improve each week.
Senuk De Silva, Ashutosh Hebbar & Darcey Cutler played in JDC 1 this season. The boys had a great season finishing 4th on the ladder with 22.5 points and 110.53%. This is the first time all 3 players have represented the Veneto Club. There is only 5 points between 2nd and 5th spot on the ladder so the last couple of rounds will determine the final positions on the ladder.
Kenzy Hussain, Valentina Mustica, Vida Mousawy & Piper McOrmond represented the JDC 3 Veneto team. The girls are currently 2nd on the ladder with 26.0 points and 166.67%. This is the first time all four players are playing and experiencing any type of competition. The top two teams play in the Grand Final at the end of the season so we wish the JDC3 team the best of luck to finish in the top 2.
