The City of Melville Junior Tennis Tournament finished at the Melville Tennis Centre on Friday 12th January 2007 after a week of fine competitive tennis from juniors aged from under 10 years up to 18 years.
This event has been staged annually by the Melville Palmyra Tennis Club since 1976. Her Worship Katherine Jackson, Mayor of the City of Melville, acknowledged the fact that some of the volunteers from the club have assisted in the organisation the event since its inception 32 years ago. She also congratulated local business Mountway Melville Hyundai for its generous support of this important community project..
During the tournament nearly 450 matches were scheduled and the organisers were fortunate that despite forecasts of rain, only two matches had to be suspended due to rain..
Ms Helen Morgan, a Director of Tennis West, attended the trophy presentation ceremony and joined the Mayor in presenting trophies to event winners and runners-up. She commended the club on the efficient conduct of this event, which had established itself as an important event in the junior tennis calendar.
In the last several years, Life Members of the tennis club have contributed towards an award for outstanding sportsmanship from competitors during the tournament. Life member and Tournament Referee Keith Holland announced and presented the award to May-Ann Boulos.
