ETLC Grand finals day Thursday 29th June 2023

Today’s ideal weather at Moruya Tennis and bowls club courts gave our ETLC ladies tennis season 1 grand finalists the best start to the day. Over 70 ETLC members and other supporters turned out to cheer on the teams. A BIG thank you to Bev and her team for hosting.

Division 1

Narooma had defeated Tomakin 1 three times throughout the season but Tomakin 1, the defending Div 1 champions, utilised their consistent and disciplined hitting, long rallies and accurate volleys to win the match 6 sets and (38 games) to nil sets (20 games).

Narooma had a number of players absent and called on Nicole Barrett to reserve. Their tenacity to stay in the games was admirable with 20 shot rallies, great pick-ups and a number of sets taking close to an hour and half to complete.

Division 2

Both Tomakin and Broulee Flamingos had come into the finals with good wins throughout the season. Their tennis was characterized by long rallies, precision vollies and close games with the first 2 sets being 1 game the difference. Throughout the next 4 sets there were many deuces and the lead changed a number of times.

The end result: Tomakin 5 sets (38 games) to Broulee Flamingos 3 sets (28 games).

A small presentation to winners and runners up was made on the day by the President ETLC Jo Morgan.
