“Sunday, 7th December, Coolum Tennis Club celebrated the end of another successful year of operation. Thanks to the supporters who wore red, supplied food and helped to make the afternoon a success. Gratefully, there were no storms. We were lucky enough to be visited by our Patron Laurie Bruhl, who congratulated the club on its friendliness and the hard work of the committee members. We hope to see him back on the court soon. Also present was our Interim President from Melbourne, Alan Hale as well as a representation from Fixtures, Social Tennis and Junior Tennis. it is lovely to have the young families involved.

The Junior championships were only played on Friday night and in a friendly competition the winner was Vitor, an exchange student from Brazil with Cam McAlpine as the runner up. Jett and Kirsty were the 3rd and 4th placegetters. Congratulations to all juniors and their supportive parents for the excellent competition. Previous to this, the finals of the senior competition was played on Tuesday night. Both Divisions featured Coolum teams. The first match of the night was the most exciting with Peter Bilton and John playing for one and a half hours and going to a tie breaker. Peter won eventually as did his team. Congratulations.”
