Moruya Seniors Tennis a Smash!

The Moruya Country Market Seniors Tennis Tournament, held last Friday, Saturday and Sunday at Moruya and Tuross Head Tennis clubs, saw players come from Sydney, the A.C.T. and all along the south coast. Over 120 players competed in the 3-day round-robin tournament for players aged over 35 years.

While the weather forecast was threatening, players enjoyed near perfect conditions for tennis for most of the weekend..

In Mens Singles, Merimbula’s Dennis Love overcame Phil Higgs from Tuross. Batemans Bay’s Donna Davis took out the womens final against Christine Jarrett (ACT).

Organisers wish to thank the sponsors, all the players for supporting the tournament, and, all the volunteers at Moruya and Tuross Head tennis clubs who worked so hard to make this annual event such a success.”

The Moruya Seniors Tennis Tournament is part of a statewide “circuit” of tennis tournaments for Over35’s. Virtually every weekend there is an Over 35’s tournament somewhere in NSW. While there are plenty who take their sport seriously, the overall emphasis is on participation and social interaction, not winning. More info and a calendar of seniors tennis events is available at Tournaments coming up – Kiama and Merimbula in October, Ulladulla next February, Narooma next March, Batemans Bay next July. So if you are an ex-champion who is returning to the sport, or, just a social player who enjoys the game, why not give it a try?
