THE second annual Savannah Slam was held at the Mareeba Tennis Club over the weekend with a host of players travelling far and wide to compete. 

The event was established last year and was a resounding success, giving the Mareeba Tennis Club the right momentum to push forward for their second event.

Teams from Cooktown, Clifton Beach, Innisfail and Atherton travelled for a chance to play each other in the round robin tournament. 

There was a record number of 24 teams split across the three grades available, special, A grade and B grade. 

Event organiser Neale Searle said that the response to the Savannah Slam has been overwhelming with more teams registering than last year. 

“It has been a really good response and we have more teams than last year,” he said.
