This year marked the 60th anniversary of the championships, which involves regions from all over the state, including Loddon, Gippsland, Mornington, Goulburn and Wimmera, with Barwon the only region in the event’s history to triumph on eight consecutive occasions. Fantastic!
The championship caters for everyone from 12 and under, right up to senior players, in singles, doubles and mixed doubles.
It features some of the Geelong region’s very best players as well as many of the young guns who may one day rule the courts of Geelong and possibly beyond.
Event highlights included Matt Hicks successfully defending his open singles crown and then teaming with Adam Lasky to take out the open doubles, while young star Ryan Lee won his three events, dropping a mere two games on his way to the singles title.
Barwon Region won 13 titles, with 10 runners-up and were dominant and convincing champions.
