Great Southern Midweek Tennis Association
The Great Southern Midweek Tennis Association is in full swing with fabulous tennis, many laughs and those famous lunches making the 2019/20 a brilliant season so far. Teams include Dumbleyung, Katanning, Kukerin, Lake Grace, Tarin Rock and the welcome addition of Kukerin New to the competition, enabling each team to play each other twice and have a home ground advantage. All teams are challenged by the variety of court surfaces within the Association from synthetic grass to lawn to the brand new gel hard courts at Kukerin.
Wednesday 20 November marked Round 5 and gale force weather conditions. There were probably a few choice aces and match play as a result of the wind! Kukerin hosted Katanning and continued their perfect match play for the season with five out of five wins, cementing their top of the ladder status (which also was the first competitive game on the new courts! What a great start!). Tarin Rock hosted Dumbleyung and Lake Grace hosted Kukerin New with the home teams both winning their respective matches.

Next Saturday the pennant competition resumes and Kukerin will travel to Kulin for our match. This will be a tough encounter as Kulin have been hard to defeat on their home green over many years so a good effort will be needed by all players. There will be pennant practise for all available players from 5.00 pm Friday afternoon.
Next Sunday with harvest winding down it is planned to conduct a “Corporate Bowls” competition for all residents who can make the effort to come along and have some fun and socialise for the evening. Players intending to participate are asked to arrive at the club by 4.30 pm. For further information please contact Ross Ditchburn.

Pairs, two cocky little roosters won 3! Played some awesome bowls and someone had a wrong bias and a bottle of Baileys was bought – don’t know who that was Russel?
