ANZ Hot Shots Orange Matchplay Grand Final Success

Some tennis stars of the future have been battling it out on the courts at Onslow Park Tennis Club in the inaugural ANZ Hot Shots Orange Matchplay competition.

Head Coach Matt Bull set up the new competition to offer match practice for orange ball Hot Shots players aged seven to 10.

Twenty-four girls and boys competed in teams of three players over six weeks.

Each team chose a team name and colour and played a combination of singles and doubles matches in a round robin competition against three other teams.

Last Saturday, the final round of the competition included the grand final between the Babolat Rebels and the Tennis Crushers.

In a hard-fought contest, Rebels Zack Barley, Rob Forman and Owen Lisle narrowly won 3 rubbers to 2, to claim the title.

The next six-week competition will start in February next year.
