In a very tight and tough battle, they held off a determined Parkdale to win the coveted prize of the winners wine glasses kindly provided with thanks by the Bayside Regional Tennis Competition. Rain interruptions and general windy conditions, almost forced the game to be finished off in the following week, but the team persevered for a satisfying result in the end.

It was a great season all Winter, with Beaumaris finishing on top of the ladder. We played Parkdale in the Preliminary Final who beat us and forced us into a Semi Final against another strong team in Elwood Park. Determination for the crown pushed us over the line against Elwood Park, where we faced off against Parkdale once again in the Grand Final.

Well done to the full team for their strong season and gutsy grand final win and watch out for them in the next season, starting in October.

Full team members include:

Ladies: Kellie Baker, Di Meek, Susete Gaspar, Angela Hawkins and Rani Walsh

Men: Spiro Papalas, Trevor Allwright, Frank Marek, Neil Saunders, Paul Russo

Thanks also to emergencies: Kira Michalova, Cathy Gibbins and Bob Carr
