Its Finals Time….

But before we take a look at all the teams who have made it through to the semi finals, I would like to take this opportunity to thank all junior comp players and parents for another wonderful season of tennis representing our club.

16 teams took to the courts in the Waverley & District winter competition, which was one of the most ever by Glen Iris Valley. Another record has been smashed……the amount of teams to make the finals. A staggering 12 out of the 16 teams are in the semi final with one of them already qualifying for the Grand Final. It has been a super effort by all the players.
