This year, the Frankston Tennis Club entered a Ladies Pennant team, consisting of Natalie Logan, Tracy Scott, Joanne Smith, Joanne Evans, Judy Jungling and Rhonda Cronin. Playing in Grade 5 Section 1, they were undefeated through the home-and-away season, finishing on top of the ladder!
Two weeks ago, they played their Section 1 semi-final and easily defeated Monash University Tennis Club and (due to finishing higher on the ladder than the other semi-final winner) declared SECTION CHAMPIONS. Being the best performing team across the whole Grade also earned them a bye in the preliminary finals week of the Grade finals.
This coming Saturday 23rd August, they play a home semi-final against Doncaster Tennis Club. A win puts them into the Grand Final for the Grade, giving them the chance to become both the GRADE and SECTION champions! The last time this happened at Frankston was 35 years ago, where our Mens Pennant team also went undefeated through the home-and-away season, Section finals and Grade finals, winning Grade D Special.
Play starts at 9:00 am with the forecast looking great for tennis. Come down to the courts and cheer them on!
