The future of Numurkah Lawn Tennis Club is bright with a host of juniors performing on their home courts at the 87th annual Australia Day weekend tournament.

But the coveted 16-and-under boys’ title was claimed by Lockington-Bamawm’s Stanley Brentnall, while Nicola Brown took out the top-aged girls’ category in the 14-and-under age group.

Numurkah’s juniors did win their share of silverware though, with Rhys Cason taking out the 14-and-under championship by defeating Mooroopna’s Oscar Crilly in an entertaining final.

Liam Williams was too strong in the 12-and-under boys’ division, while Rhiann Eddy blitzed the competition in the same age group for the girls.

Cason returned to action in the 14-and-under boys’ doubles, forming a brilliant combination with James Cam to win the title.

Bec Williams and Ella Wilson took out the top gong in the 14-and-under girls’ doubles and Hannah O’Brien and Andie Beatson produced a spectacular performance in the 12-and-under girls’ doubles.

Nathan Page and Liam Williams had some tough opposition in the 12-and-under boys’ final, but were still able to overcome Hudson Storer and Lochie O’Brien.
