THE Allambee, Mirboo and District held its annual tennis tournament at the Leongatha Tennis Club over the weekend.
The tournament saw competitors take to the court for men’s and ladies doubles on Saturday before mixed doubles took over on Sunday.
Saturday’s A Grade was well represented in both ladies and men.
Michelle Krohn and Bronwyn Williams won all their sets to take the title from five pairs and some close sets.
The winner of the men’s was decided in a high standard set: Matt Pocklington and Scott McIvor winning this set from Justin Krohn and Simon Thomas, who certainly had them trying hard all the way.
A Reserve had only two pairs entered and as B Grade had only one pair, youngsters Phillipa Littlejohn and Sarah Sauvarin played up in this grade which was won by Sue Van Sinderen and Susan Clark. Kelly Barter and Rhonda Newton made up this section.
The men played in two sections and the two winners played off: only one pair in B Grade so Will Littlejohn and Tristan Thomas played with the A Reserve men.
A good final was played between Neil Odgers and Greg Edwards and Karsten Krohn together with Steve Charlton. This set was a game of great intensity from all four. Steve and Karsten came up winners.
Mixed doubles were played in ideal conditions again on Sunday.
Eleven pairs in A Grade made for a very good competition in two sections.
Michelle and Justin Krohn played Matt Pocklington and Ange Williams with the Krohn’s getting up 8-5 in the final.
A Reserve had only three pairs with Steve Charlton and Rhonda Newton the winners in this grade.
B Grade had only one entry, Christine Fleming-Brian Taylor; they played with the A Reserve.
One of the sets was a tiebreaker in a good effort.
