Fast4 tennis competition ends with bang

Another Fast4 Social Tennis competition has come and gone and proved to be very popular as always.

It was great to see a lot of new faces on the court throughout the nine-week competition, both juniors and seniors and hopefully it gets more people involved in tennis long term.

Last Wednesday night was the final round, with teams having their last chance to show off their skills and end the season on a high.

Mount Schank proved they were the team to beat all season and their final round performance showed why, with a dominating 6-24 to 0-9 win over Court Jesters.

It was the likes of Will Boston and John Ralston that showed their class on the night and throughout the season which helped them secure yet another win.

Alex Laube also proved to be a handy inclusion in the final round, putting in a good show for his team as well. Sergio Cesaro and Jess Stewart fought hard for the Jesters, falling just short against Will Boston and John Ralston, going down 3-4, but it was the great all-round performance from Mount Schank that pushed them to victory.

In the match of the round, Too Cole for School showed why they were around the mark all season, with a tight 4-22 to 4-20 win over Suttontown.

It was an extraordinary match, with every set having a 4-3 result.

This one could have easily gone the way of Suttontown with a bit of luck, but it just was not quite their night.

Dane Heemskerk proved his worth as a fill-in all season, securing three wins for Too Cole for School, while Tim Benny had a great night on the court for Suttontown with two wins.

In other matches, Mil Lel Green defeated Double Dutch 5-21 to 1-7 and The Violet Crumbles were victorious over Mil Lel White 6-24 to 0-12.

The Violet Crumbles finished the season strongly and forced their way into second place on the ladder, which is a great result for the Le Cornu’s and Carey’s team.

Due to popular demand, Fast4 tennis will continue once the main tennis season has finished up, with a likely start date of Wednesday, April 6.
