IT has been a very successful summer season at Ocean Grove Tennis Club with seven junior teams playing in grand finals.
Three teams had their finals away and Sections 18 and 20 had Ocean Grove Red playing against Ocean Grove White, at the home courts. It was a great atmosphere with over 60 people at the courts.
The grand final matches were followed by a club presentation at Ocean Grove for all juniors. This was also a chance to present Club Championship, Junior Sportsmanship and Encouragement Awards to the recipients. There were almost 80 people in attendance who enjoyed a pizza lunch after the official speeches were completed.

Grand final results:
Section 3 Girls played Waurn Ponds and had a major battle. They won by just two games 3-30 to 3-28. Steph Golightly, Edelle McKinlay, Brooke Vigilante and Emily Kehagias make up this team of dedicated players, who have worked hard all season.
Section 13 Boys played Highton and unfortunately lost 2-22 to 4-27. Lachie Dwyer, Drew Honey, Sam Hines, Mitch Arumets and Charlie Larsen have had a great season with much success.
Section 18 Girls Red played their friends Ocean Grove White in this tough game. The Reds won the day by just two games 3-27 to 2-25 proving how close these teams have been all year in ability. Well done for a terrific season to the Reds – Emmy Bowyer, Alyssa Dickeson, Amelia Bibby, Abbey Stanic and Aislynn McKinlay and also their clubmates the Whites – Melanie Rose McCluskey, Ruby Fry, Charli Duckett, Maddie Searle and Lucy Teese.
Section 20 also had an intraclub contest Red against White. Congratulations to the Reds who won 4-30 to 2-19. The Red team included Emily O’Kane, Georgia Gill, Georgia Antonio, Mia Sellars and Alannah Wilkens; and the Whites were Clare Walker, Tara Sampson, Samantha Hayes, Molly Gannon and Summer Von Atticus.
