The Spring season of night tennis came to a conclusion on 15th and 16th December with many familiar faces receiving premiership medallions. Five different clubs shared the spoils of victory in the five grand finals.


The Tuesday Division 1 grand final was another enthralling encounter between regular combatants Lobethal Aces and Piccadilly Serve Smash Cheers. The Aces maintained their edge to win a close encounter 3 sets – 30 games to 3 sets – 27 games. Jack and Mary Young and Mary and Eric Harrison were undefeated throughout the season and the win made it three premierships since combining in Spring 2014.


At Bridgewater the home team Courtasones defeated Mylor Bunyips 6 sets to 1 to claim the Tuesday Division 2 title. The result was much closer than the scores indicate as 3 of the sets were decided by tie-breaker. Anthony Morriss, Ross Wall, Angela Mullan and Christine Ward added another medallion to their collection accumulated over the years of night tennis competition.


Upper Sturt Hit and Miss travelled to Lobethal to battle the undefeated Tuesday Tigers for the Tuesday Division 3 grand final. The visitors were victorious 5 sets to 1 to erase the memory of two close losses to the Tigers throughout the season. Regulars Rob Lorimer, Nick Seal and Annette Huxholl were joined by Marion Speedy, filling-in for the holidaying Hanna Pannewig, to avenge a 6 sets to nil drubbing 12 months earlier by the Lobethal H.A.R.D. Hitters.


The Wednesday Division 1 grand final was an Echunga derby between Hillbillies and Duncan Doughnuts. The Doughnuts added to their recent string of premierships with a 4 sets to 2 victory. Regular night tennis participants Gary Stibbs, Leonie Duncan and Ruth McLeod added Steve Noble to the line up and took the title in a very closely contested division.


Crafers Koalas defeated IBCG Cherry Slicers 5 sets to 1 to claim the Wednesday Division 2 premiership. Jake Hordacre, Jason May, Georgia Bradford and Emma Lowe completed a successful season with a hard fought win against the Cheery Slicers who played six people in the final to share the experience.

League Manager update 18 December 2015




We really appreciate your ongoing support as we implement the new-look League Manager. We are continuing to improve the system and have recently made some updates.


League Manager:

  • League managers are now able to make manual adjustments to the ladder on an individual match basis; rubbers, sets, games and points can all be adjusted.
  • A number of organisation, league and team logos have been uploaded in League Manager, which now display throughout Match Centre. Organisations also have the ability to update their own logo in League Manager.

Match Centre:

  • Personalised player statistics are now displayed on a player’s dashboard, as well as an overall list for each division
  • Viewing the ladder points by round has been added as an option.
  • To improve the navigation in Match Centre, users can set their favourite organisations, leagues, teams and players by clicking the star icon when viewing one of the options, allowing for quick viewing next time you visit the site

Step-by-step instructions are available via the System Support website . Alternatively, book a personalised online training session or contact Tennis Services on 1800 PLAY TENNIS (1800 752 983) or email play@tennis.com.au.

We appreciate your patience and look forward to receiving your feedback as we continue to improve League Manager.

With the festive season upon us, rest assured we will continue to develop and refine the system throughout the holiday period. This is the last major update planned for this year but please look out for more updates early in 2016.

We wish you and your families a very merry Christmas.


Kind regards,
