This year 19 kids battled it out for the Fernie rookie of the year.  Some great displays of sportsmanship, tactics and concentration, as the matches get longer and more challenging.   With the competition getting serious and our first ever tie break in the under 14’s final the juniors are rising to the challenge and proofing themselves to be very serious competitors.  Well done to all players, parents, coaches and sponsors for a great day all round.

Under 14 winner Ewan Carter; U14 runner-up Mac Piney; U10 winner Mack Sanderson; U10 runner-up Finn Piney.

Under 10 Plate 1 winner Tanner Hewitt; U10 Plate 1 runner-up Riley Helgren; U10 Plate 2 winner Kerry Williams; U10 Plate 2 runner-up Wolfgang Weixelbaum; U10 Plate 3 winner Arden Stuckey; U10 Plate 3 runner-up Wren Hepher.

Under 8 winner Kerry Williams; U8 runner-up Ian MacCormack.

Thanks to Canadian Tire, Tennis BC, Fernie Tennis Coaching and Fernie Tennis Community Association for their support.
