Social tennis at Byron Bay wrapped up their year in style last Tuesday, with their Social Singles Award Presentation night. 

Former arm-wrestling champion Cesar Banzer flexed his muscles to top the table, while Conor Reid and Ami Shoesmith narrowly finished in second and third place.

There was over 75 participants for the semester that saw Frank Schultheiss remain undefeated while his wife Ulrike Schmidt was the Most Improved Female player. 

Baz Davison was a giant killer throughout the competition to take out Most Improved Male.

The most prestigious Spirit Award Trophy went to Ozi Uger for the amazing contribution and flair he brought to all the social tennis evenings.

Social Singles returns January 17 2023.
