Eurobodalla Thursday Tennis Ladies Competition.

The Grand Finals were held at Narooma courts on Thursday 24th November. What a fabulous way to end the competition for 2022! The weather was beautiful, the tennis was excellent and there were lots of supporters who came along to cheer and watch! Even a few fellows came to watch wives and friends play, and all were catered for! A wonderful festive atmosphere had been created. The clubhouse looked lovely with lots of flowers everywhere and there was a fabulous spread of lovely tasty food for all to share! There was ample seating and shade provided. Thank you to all the helpers!

Tomakin really did pull off a hat trick by winning in all three divisions!!! Congratulations Tomakin! That may be a first in EDTA and ETLC history! But really, congratulations to all finalists for 3 excellent matches! Players some more photos of the day will be added to the link from last week!

Division 1 Tomakin 6 sets 43 games defeated Bay Babes 2 sets 23 games. After 6 sets, there were only 10 games in it, so the last 2 sets went on! Some fabulous tennis was on show on court 1 and there was lots of cheering on!!!

Division 2 Narooma Gold 4 sets 40 games went down to Tomakin 5 sets 43 games! Yes it was full of high drama!! A 5th set was required as after 8 sets it was 4 sets all and 37 games all! 1 & 2’s had to go out for a 5th match! Marlene Adams, of Tomakin, took time out due to feeling ill and, despite Narooma being up before the break in play, they lost their mojo and the set when Marlene recommenced. Anne Edwards came on as a replacement for the next set and the rest is history! Congratulations Tomakin!

Division 3 Tomkatz 5 sets 31 games defeated Bay Breeze 0 sets 18 games. A win was declared after 5 sets, but it was far from easy this time. Breeze girls put up a great fight, starting off the day with a tie breaker set! 2 of the other sets went to 6-4! Congratulations Tomkatz on never losing a match and only losing 8 sets for the entire Comp! The girls had a social game and a bottle of champus while the other teams finished their matches.
