Nelson Bay Tennis Club keeps interclub challenge shield

LAKE Macquarie Tennis Centre and Nelson Bay Tennis Club's interclub challenge last Sunday was a great success despite the weather.

Showery conditions prevented the mixed doubles being played but the doubles matches were hotly contested.

As the challenge was unfinished, Nelson Bay Tennis Club retained the Challenge Shield but the Lake Macquarie players are keen to continue their good form and reclaim the shield on Sunday, September 21, at Nelson Bay.

Club professional Peter Doohan and partner Kelly Moran put on an excellent show, with more than 40 players participating.

First-time Lake Macquarie representatives Amy and Matt Flynn and Rachel and Jay Bolton were outstanding.
