There was plenty of tennis for the over 35s on Sunday, May 2 when Wangaratta Lawn Tennis Club hosted the latest round of seniors tennis as part of the North East Veterans calendar.
The weather was perfect for the 45 plus players and their supporters.
Tournament manager Noel Boyd said that although he had some very late entries he was very pleased with the numbers.
Half of the players were local members while others came from far and wide to visit Wangaratta.
Noel said he had entries from as far as Wagga Wagga to the north, Tatura to the east and the Mornington Peninsula to the south.
He also said the well maintained lawn courts are always an attraction and it is always a good opportunity for players to meet up again as for some it was their first tennis outing since COVID restrictions were lifted .
“What better way is there to promote the Rural City of Wangaratta than though a game of tennis on grass in such perfect conditions?” he said.
The final round of the North East Seniors Tennis 2020-21 season will be held at Yarrawonga lawn courts on May 16.

Final event for 2018-19 Wangaratta Lawn Tennis Calender.
The second last round of the Nth East Veterans tournaments was held on Sunday in perfect warm autumn conditions at Wangaratta`s Lawn tennis courts.
Organisers Noel Boyd and Mick Keogh reported that over fifty players and support staff were involved. They were pleased to have players travel from Rosebud, Euroa, Wodonga, Shepparton and from more local areas around Wangaratta. The bulk of entries in fact was from local players and this was reflected in the results. There were significantly more mens entries this time with only fourteen women playing. However everyone enjoyed their round robin play and tennis was certainly the winner.
The final Nth East Veterans round will be held at Shepparton`s Lawn courts on the Sunday after Easter.
