On Sunday March 10th SOSUNS hosted an extremely successful tennis competition attended by over 40 athletes with over 60 matches played. This fantastic event was run entirely by volunteers Sue, Jo, Rosie who spent countless hours preparing for the day to our wonderful umpires, ball boys and girls and barbecue people who fed over 100 people on the day.
There are simply too many people to name everyone, but on behalf of SOSUNS and the athletes THANK YOU - you are much appreciated!

The balls flew across the court in a magnificent display of power and precision.
When playing against the reigning world champion there is no choice but to go for the line and that is exactly what Ashley Springett did.
It was a thrill for Ashley to play in the mixed doubles competition against Kelly and her brother Michael and he was very proud to come away with a bronze medal.
Ashley also earned a commendable fourth place in the singles competition.
