ALMOST 200 players flocked to Nedlands Tennis Club to take part in their recent tournament.

Held from January 11 to 14, the bronze series money tournament and junior classic offered many junior and sub-junior players a chance to participate in their first Australian ranking points competition.

“There was a huge buzz at the club over these four days, and in the end 185 players played 323 matches and the conditions were ideal, bar a hottish day on Saturday afternoon,” Nedlands Tennis Club’s Nathalie Smalberger said.

The women’s singles champion was 13-year-old Talia Gibson, who overcame Teiwa Casey in three Fast 4 tie-breaker sets.

The men’s singles champion was Zach Itzstein, who took on Alex Downey in two Fast 4 tie-breaker sets.
