Junior Prizegiving 2024 & Philippe's Farewell

Your "Club of the Year" Celebrates Junior Success Amidst Record Season and Says Farewell to Head Coach Philippe! For all the photos, please visit our Facebook or Instragram pages.

The winter downpours stopped just in time for our Junior Prizegiving on 14 June.  A surge in junior membership numbers by 36% set the stage for one of the club's most successful junior seasons in recent memory, culminating in a vibrant event attended by a record number of juniors and their families.  

Among the season highlights were the reinvigorated Junior Club Championships, promoting a 'have-a-go' approach and leading to record junior participation in 87 events held over an intense three-day period. Millie O emerged victorious in the 18U Girls Singles category, securing her first title by defeating fellow interclub teammate Isla S in a wonderful match that showcased their talent and determination. The 18U Boys Singles final featured a clash between Gage V, the current club men's singles champion, and Neve U, the reigning NZ 12U National Boys Singles title holder. In a match described as the tournament's pinnacle, Neve clinched victory in a display of exceptional tennis prowess, thrilling spectators with an extraordinary level of play from both competitors.

As the season draws to a close, we look forward to building on this momentum and nurturing the next generation of tennis stars.
