Tennis: Youngsters figure in night competition final

THE finals of the Lismore District Tennis Association spring competition produced some closely contested matches.

The competition has been running in three divisions since late August.

It has involved more than 60 players of all ages mainly from the Goonellabah and East Lismore clubs.

For the first time in a few years players from the Lismore Town Club also competed.

That has been a result of Brendan Lee of Raising Aces Tennis Academy having taken over the running of the courts in Ballina Road.

Two of the competition's youngest players, Jack Franey, 15, and Mikaela Moran, 13, played in the Division 1 final.

 

CLOSE CALL: Division 2 Blue runners-up, from left, Gary Barton, Betty Keevers, Jo-Anne Giles and Trish Spillane.
