WITH the tennis season well under way socially and with junior coaching into its third week, a group of more serious players launched into the competitive pennants on Saturday.

Unfortunately, due to a short supply of able-bodied men, Northam was only able to field one pennants team this year but got off to a great start with a win against Beverley.

Northam hosted Beverley and although the play was tightly contested eventually won the day with 16-14 sets.

Team spirit: Northam Lawn Tennis Club’s pennants team for the 2014-15 season: Kirsten Arthur, Cathy North, Beverley Young, Dennis Saunders, Kellie Podmore, Astyn Temby, Reuben Thompson and Alan Smith.

It was a great team effort to take the win with special mention to Dennis Saunders who won five out of his six sets and to both Reuben Thompson and Beverley Young who won four out of their six sets.

Next week Northam takes on Cunderdin in Northam for the pennants trophy for 2014-15.

On the past two Sundays, social tennis has been well attended although with the blustery conditions this week hitting the ball was somewhat of its own challenge.

Players were also keen to get into the spirit of the Melbourne Cup on Tuesday with a cup sweep and afternoon tea.

Members of the club continue to support men’s health with the Movember challenge on once again.

Mid-week social tennis continues on Wednesdays and has been well supported.

The Northam women’s Double Day tournament takes place on November 12.

For further details please contact captain Jo Hill at SportsPower. For those wishing to play tennis at the Northam Lawn Tennis Club, social tennis is played on both Wednesday mornings from 9am and Sunday afternoons from 1.30pm.

New members receive a once-off half-price membership fee applying to singles, family and junior memberships. Contact the Northam Country Club for further details.
