TENNIS: The Kingaroy and District Tennis Association's Tuesday night fixtures came to a close this week after 18 weeks of friendly competition.

The doubles competition is made up of nine teams of four players of varying abilities and experience.

The welcoming environment supports and encourages the development of players, young and old alike.

There is a lighthearted atmosphere at the courts with the players scoring their own games and providing commentary to their teammates and rivals' trials and tribulations.

Carmeen, Thamm and Tina Munt from third-placed Team Woodies put in a great performance to defeat players from the undefeated and number one ranked Team Moliks, however Moliks secured victory for the night with Larry Cann winning in straight sets.

Team Moliks had a comfortable lead heading into the final week and were awarded their trophies following the game.

Team Frasers, affectionately known as the 'young guns' were in the top two teams all season until their number one graded player, Harry Lucas, missed a few games causing Team Woodies to pip them for second place.

Despite this result Team Frasers, which is made up of players aged 16 and 17, were awarded a special encouragement award for the season.

So far 36 players have nominated for 2017-2018 summer Tuesday night fixtures starting on October 10.

There will be a practice night for the new competition on October 3 at 7pm.

To nominate for the team, phone the club's organising secretary Errol on 41622178.
