Meyer Timber was capped off a strong season to claim the A Grade championship in Stawell Tennis Club’s Wednesday night spring competition.
The victorious side overcame the efforts of Selley’s to finish with a 62-49 win in the A Grade grand final on Wednesday night.
Selley’s got off to the perfect start, winning three of the first four sets to go up 21-17.
Meyer Timber’s number one seed Nathan Baker wrestled the momentum back for his team, as they went on to win six of the next eight sets to claim to grand final victory.
Mitre 10 was too good in the B Grade grand final, comfortably accounting for Bremick.
Mitre 10 number one and two seeds Simon and David Jones led the way for their team, winning three sets each.
It is a great opportunity for young people to improve their tennis...- Nathan Baker
Kayla-May Hyslop was the best for Bremick, winning two of three sets.
Stawell Tennis Club president Nathan Baker said the Wednesday night competition provides an avenue for players to experience tennis in a less formal environment.
“It is a great opportunity for young people to improve their tennis which makes the competition very important,” he said.
“It is very a much a social hit around. I have really enjoyed seeing the young kids coming through and the number of new people we have got at the club.”
The club took both Wednesday and Friday night competitions in different directions this season, creating a spring and summer league rather than have one competition carry over Christmas.
Baker said he has seen the benefits of this change already.
"It gives a lot more variety for people looking to become involved in tennis to join,” he said.
“I am really looking forward to summer competition and hopefully we can get lots of numbers once again.
“31 people have already signed up for our next Friday night competition.”
Applications are now open for the summer Wednesday night competition, which will get underway from February 7 next year.
