Club in elite company

By Kyabram Free Press

THE Kyvalley Tennis Club recently attended Tennis Victoria’s Champion Dinner as one of five finalists for the Most Outstanding Club or Centre.

To even be nominated for this category is an outstanding achievement for such a small community-based club.

The four other finalists were Elsternwick Park Tennis Club, West Lalor Tennis Club, West Brunswick Tennis Club and Victorian Tennis Academy.

‘‘Our club was the only regional club that made it through to the finalist stage and we are thrilled to receive such recognition from Tennis Victoria,’’ Melissa Williams from the tennis club said.

While the club didn’t take out the major prize, they continue to be one of the most successful in the state.
