Autumn season: week nine – the lowdown
The regular autumn season is now complete and we’re all set for a week of grand finals!
Our match of the week this week goes to 2 players who have fought some great tennis across the season, but, saved the best for last. Ryan Hatty (right) taking on George Goucher (left) in division 4 of our Melbourne Inner City Tennis League.
Ryan came out on top 6-1, 4-6, 6-2, and with the win sneaked second place and a spot in the grand final vs Caroline, edging out George by just 2 points. Well played both, great season! Look forward to seeing you back for our winter season.
“Was a great match, George has a huge serve on him and after getting on top early he come back and took the second set. Although I won the third set 6-2 it was much closer than it looks with lots of Deuce games. George had me running a lot, was a great match.” Ryan Hatty
Our player of the week award goes to Mark McInerney from our Adelaide East Tennis League. Mark played 3 and won 3 in the last two weeks of the regular season.
First up Mark beat Chris 6-1, 6-3, he then followed this up with a 6-4, 6-0 win vs Faris and completed the hat-trick with a tough, hard fought win over Thomas 7-6, 2-6, 6-3. The three wins put Marc at the top of the ladder with a total of 26 points, playing 6 and winning 6. Great tennis Marc!
“A close, tough match which could have easily gone either way. Thanks Thomas for a really competitive game, I look forward to playing you again soon! Cheers, Mark”
“Chris and I had a good workout. The longer the match progressed the better Chris was playing, hitting several clean forehand winners. My playing experience and consistency was the difference in the end though. Thanks for the hit Chris!“
Grand final matches
Good luck to everyone who has qualified to play in a grand final. May the best player win and don’t forget to enjoy it 🙂
Just because the regular autumn season is all wrapped up, this doesn’t mean you can’t get on the court. Feel free to contact other players from your player directory to organise friendly matches in the off-season. Regular competition is a great way of improving your game and getting ready for the new season.
Promotion and relegation Q&A
Q) Will I move up or down a division next season?
A) If you have found yourself winning most of your matches then it’s likely you’ll find yourself in a higher division next season. Everyone who wins their division will definitely be promoted and quite often we’ll also promote the runner up.
On the flip side, if you have struggled in your current division, we will look to move you down a division so you are playing against others of a closer ability next season.
Our aim is always to get you the closest matches possible.
