Grammar makes mark on tennis

THE Rockhampton Grammar School is no stranger to sporting success and now it is the talented young men and women of tennis who are making their mark.

Brothers Jake and Reegan Brown and Kelly and Josh Ball, along with Eleanor Haks, Molly Scott, Hannah Flenady and Eden Beak, will represent the school and Central Queensland at the Finals Series of the Tennis Queensland sponsored 2009 Queensland Secondary Schools Team Tennis Competition.

The MIC of tennis at the school, Pam Hadwen, says the players are getting prepared for some tough matches.

“We're looking forward to a challenge,” she said.

The teams they will come up against hail from Sunshine Coast, Brisbane, Toowoomba, Ipswich, Ingham and Currumbin.

This competition proves to be an honour for the school and to the players as it is the first time both boys and girls have represented the region.

The finals series is being played at Victoria Park and began yesterday and continues today with seven teams each in both the girls and boys pools.

“They play six matches, three each day of the competition,” Hadwen said.

The winners will be based on the outcome of both doubles and singles matches.

Matches, sets won and the difference between total games won and lost are the deciding factors.

This is only the beginning of the hard work for most of the players, with the Queensland Age Championships beginning on Saturday at Rockhampton.
