Badge Awards

On Saturday our Badge Awards presentation was held before our trivia night.

Criteria for our awards was the Lady and Man who had the best set average in Badge and who had played 5 matches. Finals matches were not included.

The Ladies winner was Danielle Govers with an 83% average. Honourable mentions to Virginia Longfellow with 78% and Julia Gunn with 64% averages.

The Mens winner was Andrew Riminton with an average of 88%. Honourable mentions to Sean Jobe with 84% and Roberto Gallardo with 85% averages.

The Club Captains Award winner was Sean Jobe. This season Sean played up a grade yet still won 32 sets losing only 4 sets. He lost another 4 sets when his partner had to forfeit due to injury. These forfeited sets count in your set average. Sean is a very humble person ( like your club captain) and fully deserves the award.

The three winners all received an engraved trophy. Congratulations to the winners and to all players for your participation this season.

Trivia

A small but noisy group( mainly from Peter Roberts table) enjoyed a Trivia Game after the awards.

Winners were “Diversity “which was Virginia Longfellows table. They were easy winners ahead of
“The Magnificent Seven” whose main contributor was Tony Hardacre.

Your President and Club Captain were both successful in knowing Smokie sang Living next Door to Alice but not much more.

Thanks to Kevin who stayed behind to manage the bar and especially to Ray, Lindy, Michelle and a few more members who contributed heavily to the bar takings.

Everyone had a good time and camaraderie was the winner.

MANLY GO DOWN IN CLOSE ENCOUNTER

Our Mens 1 Team were defeated 5-3 last Saturday in a hard fought final. The men played well all year but found Kooroora to be the better team on the day. Andrew and Thomas won 2 sets and Sean and Jono won 1 set.  The team performed well all year so have done our club proud.

The loss was made easier by the magnificent barbecue put on by The Boys from Brazil and a few drinks at the bar.

Thanks to all supporters who turned up to watch the match and cheer our men on.  Thanks also to our club members who helped out during the day with various tasks.

In better news The Sea Eagles won again on Saturday as did another team in blue and white colours.

Round 13

After last Saturday’s results, our top 3 Mens teams are safely in the semi finals with one round to play. Several of our other teams still have a chance to make the playoffs but MUST have big wins in their final matches to qualify!

There is no Badge this Saturday due to school holidays.

Badge Results Round 13

Mens 1.1 Won 7-1 away at Mortdale.  This easy win guarantees the team a home semi in two weeks time. The Boyd/Bosko were back together again to win 4 sets whilst Sean/Thomas won 3 sets.

Mens 1.3 Lost 5-3 to Marrickville at home.  Losing 3 tiebreakers cost them a win by 1 game. The guys are still in 2nd position and need to win their final match to play a home semi.  A jetlagged Milton won 2 sets with Fernando whilst Jon/Harald won 1 set.

Mens 1.4 Won 6-2 at home v Hunters Hill.  Another good win to guarantee a semi final position and maybe a home semi if the guys have a big win in their final match. Vincent/Sean continued their good partnership and won 4 sets again. Craig/Justin won 2 sets to complete an easy win.

Mens 2.1 Lost 6-2 at Royal Sydney.  Tim/Ben and Andrew/Tom each won 1 set. The guys need a big win in their final match to make the semis.

Mens 2.2 Washout at Mosman.

Mens 2.5 Washout at Marrickville

Mens 2.6 Bye.

Ladies 1.1 Lost 8-0 at home to Longueville 2.  Some close sets against a very strong team. Yvonne /Sofie and Carolina/Emily paired up.

Ladies 1.2 Won 7-1 at Kooroora.  This win gives the ladies a chance to qualify for the semis if they can have another big win in their final match.  Julie/Sharna won 3 sets whilst Olivia/Krista teamed up to win 4 sets.

PAIR OF THE WEEK

Three pairs were almost identical in winning 4 sets each and losing 12 to 13 games each. Congratulations to Krista/Olivia, Sean/Vincent and Bosko/Boyd.

Round 12

It was a very bad weekend for our badge teams with only our Mens 3 team winning.

With only two rounds remaining our top 3 Mens teams look like qualifying for the finals. Our Mens 4 team are a close 5th but all our other teams will need big wins in the next two rounds.

Congratulations to Roberto from our Mens 2 team who won a seniors tournament in Darwin last weekend. Roberto plays a lot of singles matches so his hard work is paying off.

Badge Results Round 12

Ladies 1 Lost 5-3 at home v Neutral Bay.  Yvonne/Emily won 2 sets and Carolina/Kirsten won 1 set.

Ladies 2 Lost 7-1 away at Sydney University. Olivia/Sophie won 1 set. Julie/Sharna were the other pair. Danni and Virginia have been out the last few matches so they have been missed.

Mens 1 Lost 6-2 at Neutral Bay.  Last years runners up were too good on their home courts. Sean/Sam won 2 sets whilst Boyd/Jono went close in their sets.

Mens 2 Lost 4-4 on games at home v Kooroora.   A close loss but the team still remains first.  Jon /Harald won 2 sets.  Rob Muir and President Craig won 2 out of 3 tiebreakers.

Mens 3 Won 5-2 at home v Tennis Valley.  Sean/Justin won 4 sets and Craig/Jarryd won 1 set with one unfinished.   Sean Jobe has now only lost 3 sets all season and has played with several different partners.  Excellent work, Sean.

Mens 4 Lost 5-3 at Kooroora.  A close match keeps the team just out of the top 4. Jono/Tim won 2 sets and Scott/Tom 1 set.

Mens 5 Lost 4-4 on games away at Marrickville.  We knew we were in for a tough match when we noticed two cows grazing on the grass as we arrived.  The surface played like a cow paddock and the home team used the conditions better. Carl/Graham won 1 set and Denis/Chris managed 3 sets. It was good to have Chris Diaz (aka Marco Polo ) back from his world travels. The highlight of the afternoon was seeing a slimmed down new Opposition Leader Albo playing social tennis and having a brief chat.

Mens 6 Lost 8-0 at Sydney Uni.  To protect the innocent the names will remain anonymous.

Mens 7 Lost 6-2 at home v Cheltenham.  A good effort against a strong Cheltenham team. Bob/Ray led the way again winning two sets whilst Des/Tommy played 4 tough sets.

PAIR OF THE WEEK

Sean and Justin won their 4 sets.Congratulations for a great effort.
