TennisGear SuperLeague News – Season Wrap Up

TennisGear SuperLeague News

This month’s competition in review

December, 2016. The Superleague season reached it’s pinnacle with the semi finals and Grand finals being played these past couple of weeks. The best of the best from each division battled it out for the title and to leave their legacy on the competition. We are immensely proud of all of our teams and have chosen a few stories to share in this month’s edition.

This will be the final SuperLeague newsletter for 2016. thank you for submitting all your great stories with Brisbane’s largest tennis community. We look forward to another big year next year. Remember to get your team nominations in early as the grading will be taking place during the break.

The Shawesome foursome

We have always believed in our teams, but our division 4 players on Thursdaynight SuperLeague really came through this season. All four teams successfully made it to the semi finals to battle it out against each other for a place in the Grand final. Two exciting Semi finals saw Shaw Aero: Craig and Deb (top left) and Ray (not pictured), and Shaw Oblivion: Jan and Deb (bottom right) advance. Bad luck to Shaw Faster: Niv and Joab (top right) and Shaw Shakers: Anish and Lisa (bottom left).

It was Shaw Aero who held their nerve in the Grand final and were able to secure the title. Congratulations for an outstanding season everyone, you’ve earnt a well deserved break before the new season starts next year.

Ben & Ben valiant in defeat

They may not have won the final, but no one can deny the fighting spirit of the Emerson Ivanovic Playing in Division 1 of Thursday night’s competition. Ben Keightley (left) and Ben Devenish-Mears (right) teamed up for the first time in a season filled with ups and downs. Overcoming these challenges has brought these guys closer together and we are certain willl make them a formidible team in the future.

SG 5 goes to Emerson

A hard fought season paid off for the smiling assassins, Aiden and George, in the Super Grade 5 Grand final on Saturday afternoon. The boys were able to see of their opponents from Lifetime to win 4 sets to 1. The Emerson Lakers will look to continue their success next season in Super Grade 3, slowly working their way up to the top division that Tennis Brisbane offers. Well done guys!

Extreme happiness for Emerson in JL4

We’re extremely proud of the Emerson Extreme in Junior League 4 on Saturdays. Sam, Matt, Isaac and Cameron went into their grand final at Club Coops as the underdogs having finished third on the points ladder at the season end. The boys backed up their convincing semi final win with another great effort in the final, dropping just one set to win the trophy. We’re pegging this team as the one to watch going into next season. Well done lads!

Doing it for Duncan

When injury ruined Duncan’s (middle) season things were looking pretty grim. Fortunately, his team-mates Lucas (left) and Nick (right) were there are ready to step up to the plate. They managed to cling on to secure the division 1 title forThursday night Superleague beating Emerson in the grand final. In this case the guys were lucky. They had all played enough matches during the season to meet eligibility requirements for semis and finals. The rules state that a player must have played a minimum of 4 matches during the season. Well done Shaw Baseline, best of luck in Super Reserve next season.

Hugo comes up a winner

Well done to all the Sunday Junior League finalists on a phenomenal season. Also a big congratulations to Shaw Park’s Hugo Veerman who won the draw for a prize pack kindly donated by Tennis Brisbane and Head. Hugo has won himself a Head tennis racquet of his choice, a racquet bag, cap, and a 3 pack of Head grips. What more could a young tennis player need? Hugo and his partner, Sophie, had a great season in Junior League 1 playing for Shaw Shockwave. We look forward to see Hugo hit the courts in his new gear next season.

Fill your festive season with tennis

‘Tis the season to be jolly, and nothing will make them more jolly than playing the world’s best sport. Book the kids in for our December holiday clinics and they will enjoy a full day of tennis from 9am-3pm developing both the technical and tactical areas of their game. With plenty of fun and games thrown in, they will be begging to come back again for more!

Shaw Park Tennis Centre will be offering three 5-day clinics starting from December 5 to 9. We’ve simplified our pricing system to make things easier, so now all you have to do is select your days. Our Multi-Sport Clinic is also back from December 12 to 16 for those looking for something a bit different.

We will be holding a games and presentation day on the Friday of each clinic, so make sure they attend for all the shenanigans. For those that have never played before, the clinics act as an excellent introduction to the sport. We cater for all levels of player between 4 and 17 years.

Click the links for our online enrolments or multi sport enrolment form. These can be returned to the centre by email or you can simply phone the enrolment through by contacting 3266 1660. For more information, call our office or visit our website at www.shawparktennis.com.au.

3. SQUAD SESSION PLANS
 
I have attached a copy of the session plans the coaches will be doing during the squads for the second half of this term. If you have any questions please don’t hesitate to speak to me or one of the coaches.
 
While some drills will differ depending on the age and level of your child, I am a big believer in creating consistency throughout our coaching program at all centres and working on similar themes and drills will help us produce better tennis players.
