Tennis Northern Beaches held its annual Interclub challenge championships for the 2022 year in February 2023. The successful event was held at Bareena Park Tennis Club who hosted a fantastic BBQ and afternoon tea and reigned in the crowds. Tennis Northern Beaches would like to thank Bareena Park Tennis Club and congratulate their members for getting the courts and club ready for the event.
This annual event has been running for a few years now and each year we are seeing more and more great matches. TNB affiliated clubs are eligible to enter their club team consisting of a Ladies singles, Men’s singles and a Mixed pair entrant. These entrants have won their own club’s championships for that year. The top two clubs in each specific event played off in a final to determine the overall winner for that event and then the overall match tally is calculated to determine the overall TNB Club Champion for that year.
This year we saw 8 clubs field an extremely high standard of players who competed in over 120 matches on the day. These matches had every spectator on the edge of their seats and many point acknowledgements from the players themselves. We want to congratulate the following clubs on a great day and getting involved; Reigning champions Mona Vale, Allambie, Bareena Park, Balgowlah, Belrose, Careel Bay, Collaroy and Forestville Park.
We want to give a huge congratulation to the finalists of the events on the day:
Men’s Singles: Chris from Collaroy (Winner)
Mixed Pair: Lisa And Adrian from Mona Vale (Winners)
The finals were fought out in tough and gruelling sets with the overall champion club for the 2022 Interclub challenge championships taken out by Mona Vale Tennis Club for a Third year in a row.
