Wayne Arthur Cup team undefeated on Day 2

Under sunny Kooyong skies 6-7 April 2019 both the MDJTA and BRTA 10 & Under teams enjoyed a great weekend of competitive tennis.  This was the first major tennis event for most of the children in the team – many who haven’t started playing tournaments yet.  As a result, despite playing some great tennis on Day 1 they were a bit overawed by their more seasoned opponents.  After a night to recover from the excitement of their first day both teams returned to Kooyong to win their final two matches.  Of the sixteen Associations competing MDJTA finished 5th and BRTA 9th which is a highly commendable effort from young players competing in representative competition for the first time.
