Pennants Play-off: We won!

Our Grade 3 team deserved to win.  They were often seen practising and ultimately worked brilliantly as a team.  Looking forward to the State Finals in August. Well done Helen Hynd, Kathleen McNaught, Lindy Saville and Lesley Hines, and Lyn Thornewell, Jill Hartshorn, Merryl Gray and Jan Morris.

2018 State Singles Final

Congratulations to Lesley Hines for making it all the way to the final.

Ivy Hitchens (North Ryde RSL) was finally the winner with our Lesley runner up. Lesley played beautifully and we are very proud of her.


Our grade 3 Pennant team has won the Pennant. It was a bit nerve wracking at the start of the last game when both teams fell behind at the beginning of the games. We knew we had to win to be sure of victory and I think nerves took over for a bit, but all was well in the end.

The Region playoff is in Mitchell District on Tuesday 8th May when I know where I will let you know.,

Well done, Helen Hynd, Kathleen McNaught, Lindy Saville and Lesley Hines, Margaret Turner played twice for them substituting for Grandma Lindy and Lyn Thornewell, Jill Hartshorn, Merryl Gray and Jan Morris.

Women’s State Mixed Pairs

Macquarie District section was won by Leslie Hines & Richard Dooley (ably assisted by Ken McLennan) in an all Beecroft final over Scott & Jane Byrnes. They will now

go on to play in the Regional play-offs to be held at Beecroft on Saturday morning 21 April….

24 April Leslie and Richard put up a grand fight in the region play-offs but unfortunately were pipped at the post.  Great representatives for The Beecroft Club and the District


Major Singles

Congratulations Jane Byrne who defeated Margaret Turner 25-8.  Well deserved.  Good on all the ladies who played in the competition this year.  There were some tight matches and great games.
