Secondary schools tournament hailed a success

St Hilda’s Collegiate’s Amelia Newlands (16) plays a forehand during yesterday’s Otago secondary schools teams tennis championships at Logan Park.

The tournament attracted 11 teams of two players each from around the region, including three teams from Wanaka. They  were split into championship and cup divisions. 

Teams faced  a doubles match and  two singles matches in the best-of-three ties.  All teams played roughly three ties during the day. St Hilda’s Blue duo Mya Haigh and Claudia Christie won the championship, while Mount Aspiring Gold pair Lochie Hunt and Kalan Nichol won the cup.

Tennis Otago operations manager George McLenaghen said it had been a successful day and the tournament had not been affected too much by the Alert Level 2 status.
