Congratulations to Emily Tinker, Tamara Bajagic, Chloe Green, Sienna Di Natale and Talia Pati who on the weekend, defeated Centre Court Indoor in the women’s Grade 3 Grand Final to take the premiership.
It has been an incredible season for the girls, only dropping one match for the home and away season, then powering through 3 finals matches to take the title.
In the Grand Final eight matches are played, 4 singles and 4 doubles, with the singles being played first. The girls were confident they could get a big lead going into the doubles as they have remained undefeated in a singles match all year. The girls won 3 out of the 4 matches to take 3 matches to 1 lead:
- Emily lost to Eloise Swarbrick 3/6 0/6
- Tamara defeated Jayde Glascott 6/4 6/1
- Chloe defeated Nicole Filippou 6/0 6/3
- Sienna defeated Melanie McClelland 5/7 6/3 6/1
The doubles appeared to be Centre Court Indoors strength, but the girls put on a masterclass in the first 2 doubles match to end the day!
- Emily and Tamara defeated Eloise and Nicole 6/4 6/0
- Chloe and Sienna defeated Jayde and Melanie 6/1 6/3
This meant the girls had an unassailable lead and there was no need to play the remaining 2 doubles matches.
- The final score: MCC Glen Iris Valley 5-10-68 defeated Centre Court Indoor 1-3-39
Once again, congratulation to the girls and we look forward to them playing at the club next season in a higher grade!
