End of Season Wrap Up

There has been a lot going on at St Peters over late summer and autumn.

Firstly the lights have been upgraded to allow play in the evenings.  This was at substantial cost to the club and all donations towards this are much appreciated.  Between the lights and the ball machine there are great opportunities to practice your tennis over winter.  Another option if it is wet is to head down to the Waikato Tennis Centre and play indoors.  Through the Pay2Play system you can book a court for an hour or more.  Here is a link to court bookings.

In late April the Annual Veteran’s Tennis Tournament was held.  Despite poor weather the courts were full with visitors from all over the North Island including Taranaki, Gisborne, Hawkes Bay, Bay of Plenty, Auckland, Whanganui.  We also had local participants from St Peters and other clubs.  It was an amazing weekend thanks to the support of members such as Rod Lugton,  Brian Whitley and Andrew Fletcher who donated prizes, as well support with delicious baking from lots of members.  Our dinner on Saturday night was fantastic.  A big thank you  to Pauline Hooper & Doreen Lyons  who spent hours in the kitchen.  A big thank you to all involved.  Please see the end of the post for a list of winners.

We would also like to congratulate all our interclub teams for the year.  St Peters had two teams entered in each of the adult divisions and one team in each of the junior divisions.  The best performed team this year was the St Peters Eagles who won the 35 and over Division.

Through the winter there are a variety of Junior tournaments being held around town, some at St Peters through the Hamilton Tennis Academy.  Here is a link to the dates of the tournaments.

Over the end of summer a Fast Fours Wednesday night singles competition was started with great success.  Many of our top players came down weekly for a match and we are planning to get this started again over winter.
