Meeting to become regular date

LAST week served up some great fun and healthy competition for the members of the Hervey Bay Tennis Club.

Hervey Bay enjoyed great success when 24 players competed against Gympie over three grades – and came out on top in each grade.

Eight people competed in each team across the three grades.

Points were calculated across all three grades and Hervey Bay was well in front on the scoreboard in each grade.

The event, which was held for players aged 35 and over, was so much fun for those involved that Gympie and Hervey Bay have decided to make it a regular event, holding one meet in Hervey Bay and one in Gympie every year from now on, Hervey Bay competitor Colin Jobe said.

Jobe said the strength of the Hervey Bay side was definitely on display during the meet. “We are pleased with that effort.”

Even though Gympie had no joy against the Hervey Bay side Jobe said they were equally enthusiastic about making the event a regular competition between the two clubs.

“We all had a great day.

“The social aspect of the day was great – we’ve have some really good reports back from people.”

Next year’s competitions are likely to be held in February and October.
