“On the weekend of the 11th and 12th September,Coolum Tennis Club held it’s annual Wheelchair Tennis Tournament.

9 players registered to play.  Preliminary matches were played on Saturday followed by the finals on Sunday.

As well as a great weekend of tennis, Coolum Club hosts a dinner on Saturday night and lunch on Sunday.

Thanks to Noelene Cook and Lydia Ash for the catering on Saturday night, with Doug Bosworth cooking the barbeque and Subway for the lunch on Sunday.

 

The Wheelchair players have a wonderful camaraderie even though they are competitive.

The winner of the singles was Dave, who also won the inaugural tournament in 2011, with the runner up, our own Jesse Hinson.

Jesse has been concentrating on his paddling for the last year, so this was a very commendable effort.  The

winners of the doubles, was Dave and Kent.  Kent has played every tournament at Coolum since 2011. Mark and Dion were the runners up.
