Finals Results (11 Dec 2021)

It was fantastic to see a record number of entries across all categories and it was also pleasing to see the range in ages and experience levels – from our exceptional junior members who figured prominently, our seasoned professionals who have won many titles over the years to our “core members” who had a “go” and added to the atmosphere of the Championships over the weeks. I witnessed not only great tennis but a real sense of community and sportsmanship in line with our club’s mission.

Amazing Achievements:

Most no. of wins (3 events)Elise Thompson
Youngest Ladies Singles finalist (12 years old)Amy Gray
Youngest Mixed Doubles finalist (female, 11 years old)Vesna Marinkov

There was also a level of flexibility and adaptation required as we battled the elements during the early rounds. A number of matches had to be scheduled and then rescheduled which was not ideal but the overall club spirit of cooperation shone through. In the end we were fortunate to have a very sunny Finals day – although, also in Collaroy style, it was also a very windy one.

Big THANK YOU to our major sponsors Belle Property and Topserve! Thank you to all the Committee members who assisted throughout the Club Championships and to Norman for preparing the certificates!

Congratulations to all who participated and made the 2021 championships not only very successful but also very memorable. Have a safe and enjoyable Christmas and New Year break and we look forward an even bigger and better 2022!
