Suffolk Park Tennis Tuesday adult social players celebrated their recent night competition season last Sunday at their sponsors Yulli’s.

The latest instalment of Tennis Tuesday has been running since February, and had 50 players participating throughout.

Josh ‘Party Boy’ Davies fought off a fast finishing Cris ‘The Wrist’ Servadio to claim the title by a margin of 0.5 points. On court brilliance isn’t the only method to gain points on these social nights, as simply bringing some snacks to share, showing good spirit, or even just turning up on time can see you shoot up the leaderboard.

Other players were rewarded for their accomplishments this season, with David ‘Super Dave’ Duncan accepting the Best Leader Award for captaining his weekly team to the most wins, while the youngest player by a considerable margin, 16-year-old Tex Barry, took home the Best Rookie Award.

It was then local muso, Tim Stokes, who showed the most on-court passion to win the Best Spirit Award.

A mid-season Tie-Break Doubles Tournament was held which hosted 24 players on the night in a fast rotation style format saw Brad Morgan and Cameron Paton take the title from Matt Ott and Sabine Selbach. Suffolk Park Tennis hosts a selection of Adult Social Tennis throughout the week giving all levels a chance to have fun and enjoy this life-long sport.
