Junior National Teams Event – January 2017

I just wanted to share an example of the success our club is having.

Waikato Bays Tennis  (incl Waikato, Hawkes Bay, Thames Valley, WBOP and Bay of Plenty) have selected a team to represent the region at the Junior National Teams Event in January 2017. This is clearly quite a large catchment with a lot of clubs, a lot of juniors and some excellent coaches. Tennis WBOP is contributing 9 out of the 24 children which is quite a phenomenal result for the area… 

But more importantly, Tauranga Lawn is contributing 6 of those players! Our club should be very proud of these players and the others who came so very close to also getting selected.

I believe this just shows the strength of our programme, the ability of our coaches, the support of parents and most importantly the hard work of the children selected.

I don’t post many messages about elite tournaments and competitions, but I think all these kids should be very proud of their efforts and as a club we should be proud that our own Tauranga Lawn is punching above its weight so comprehensively. These players will be travelling to Auckland or Christchurch in January to represent Waikato Bays  (and Tga Lawn!)

Well done guys!
