THE finals of the Mareeba Tennis Club night fixtures took place recently with a total of 26 players across three divisions playing throughout the night.

There was a great number of supporters who turned up to watch cheering on family, friends and fellow tennis players. Game play started just after 7pm and finished around 9:30pm followed by the award ceremony and presentations for the winning teams.

President of Mareeba Tennis Club Mark Keating joined night fixtures co-ordinator Craig Bulst to hand out the accolades.

In division one Callum’s Captain America team defeated James’ Juggernauts by six games.

Division two saw Drews Deadpool team defeat Marina’s Mystique team by 12 games and unfortunately, one of Marina’s players retired hurt before the last set.

For division three Katie’s Killer Croc defeated Veronique’s Venom team by 10 games.

The best and fairest winners for division one, two and three were Callum Gale, Ian Meyer and Trisha Spry respectively – the winners were voted by the team captains.

The players and supporters then enjoyed a bite to eat, a cold drink and celebrated a great first season of tennis.

Season two of night fixtures begins on 19 July and both Keating and Bulst encourage people to get involved in local tennis and sign up for the upcoming season.
