2016 Family Tennis Tournament Results


Our 2016 Family Tennis Tournament was a great success with 40 participants this year.  The level of tennis was impressive and has been improving steadily for the entire six years this tournament has been running.

Families Tring, Cummins and Bond-Scott were very strong on the day, but other families like Stevic, Quill, Galvin-Rowley and Terris were in the semi finals.  Good family friendly and competitive spirit was shown during the day.

Everyone had fun and it was lovely to see all these families playing together and showing such good sportsmanship.  Well done kids for setting such a good example.
