MUDTA’s South Pacific Open has lost out to Foster in the NSW finals of the most outstanding Australian-ranked tournament award.
The presentations were made at the Tennis NSW awards night in the Noble Dining Room at the Sydney Cricket Ground on October 25.
The awards were attended by President Pauline, Secretary Lynne, Coaches Kevin and Doug and Life Member Val Crook.
The award went to the 2018 Priceline NSW Country Championships Tournament at Forster.
Our representatives had a fabulous time on the night mingling with celebrities such as Ken Rosewall, Todd Woodbridge, Casey Dellaqua, Mark Edmondson and many others and gained an insight into how to best prepare the nomination for 2019.
