Tennis Whitsunday wraps up year
A LARGE group of both players and parents attended the annual presentation day for Tennis Whitsunday last Saturday at Cannonvale School.
Special guests included member for Whitsunday Jan Jarratt and Cannonvale School principal Leigh Robinson, with apologies from Mayor Mario Demartini and ex principal Pam Graham.
President Jenny Napier highlighted the club's achievements in 2007 including strong membership numbers, great tournament results and the long awaited clubhouse, not forgetting the strong financial commitment of members and the community towards fundraising ventures this year.
Club captains and vice captains expressed appreciation to guest speakers and the club's executive, with Certificates of Appreciation.
While most of the 200 trophies handed out were known results from fixtures and club championships, the most important ones were a surprise, with special congratulations to the following players.
Sportsmanship: Sasha Johnston, Daniel Pye, Chris Vernon, Ayla Hadley and Cydney Hewitt Wood.
Most improved: Harrison Holloway, Michael Galea, Jasmine Tickle and Mchalah Sharpe.

The morning concluded with Thankyou Certificates to the many afternoon helpers and a morning tea.
Tennis will resume for Tennis Whitsunday players in early March with a registration day mid February.
