Great Southern Midweek Tennis Association
The new Kukerin Tennis courts were put to the test for Round 6 of the midweek tennis competition with Kukerin v Lake Grace and Kukerin New v Dumbleyung both scheduled to play in Kukerin. It was a wonderful occasion to see all 6 courts in action, excellent tennis played as well as the fun and furore over lunch!
Around the courts, Kukerin had a convincing win over Lake Grace, Tarin Rock defeated Katanning and Dumbleyung defeating Kukerin New which came down to the last game of the day.
Match scores Round 6
Kukerin (7 sets; 68 games) v Lake Grace (2 sets; 33 games)
Tarin Rock (6 sets; 65 games) v Katanning (3 sets; 47 games)

Kukerin Bowling Club
Sunday’s open invitation social bowls proved a huge success with a number of tennis players (future bowlers ???) joining us for the afternoon. Captain Ross organised teams and a competition for points. With much laughter and occasional whoopees when results went the right way. All present enjoyed a fun filled afternoon which was followed by a sausage sizzle and some socialising.
Next Saturday Kukerin will host Lake Grace in the continuation of the pennant competition. There will be pennant practise for all who can be available from 5.00 pm.
Next Sunday there will be a short club meeting at 3.00 pm prior to social bowls. The club welcomes anyone who would like to join us for a game.
