The Waiuku 4th Grade Blue Tennis team were placed first at the Counties Tennis Interclub Competition and they were also named the overall competition winners.
Playing clubs from Runciman, Patumahoe, Pukekohe, Pukekohe East, they took out the competition by eight points against a hard fought Pukekohe East Top Spins. It is many years since Waiuku has taken this title and the Club is very proud of their young team.
They played consistently all season and had some great unbeaten team partnerships. The team consisted of Keelan Schnell, Breanna Lieder, Breanna Hagan, Gabrielle Gandionco and Nano Kanazawa, who is an exchange student from Japan and is studying at Waiuku College.
Playing both singles and doubles during the season, the team never faltered and only lost one of their 14 games. This game was a three all draw which they lost on a count back.
