Flag Hopes Alive for Five Teams

Posted: 03-Mar-2015 by Tennis

Five of eight Maccabi teams have qualified for finals after the final round of the Summer Bayside Pennant season was played on the weekend. In humid conditions, Maccabi teams recorded five wins and three losses. 

In a promising sign for the club, Lauren Yarrow, Yael Gigi, Bianca Harris, Teegan Slomoi and Sara Nagar secured the Club's first finals appearance for a women's team in recent history after a series of impressive results. 

The dream of a premiership Pennant is also still alive for Maccabi teams in Grades 4, 7, 8 and 9, while section 5 and 8 teams finished just outside the top 4 in 5th position. The section 2 Maccabi team finished bottom of the ladder in a very high standard division, but promising youngsters Arthur Kaganovitch, Max Needleman and Jamie Muscatel, among others, displayed vast improvement and competitiveness as the season progressed.

In other news, Maccabi Tennis Club are seeking Expressions of Interest for 12 Victorian players to represent the Club in the inaugural VIC v NSW Maccabi Tennis Challenge, to be played over the weekend of April 25-26 in Melbourne.
