Tennis juniors perform well on grass



GLADSTONE juniors finished their playing duties in fine style on the Head CQ Junior Masters team tour of Victoria, with solid performances at the Euroa Open completed yesterday.

Gladstone trio Noah Marsh, Ryan Mitchell and Ben Aldridge all finished runners-up in their respective doubles competitions in a strong finale to their tour.

Marsh teamed up with Rockhampton's Ben Carlon in the 18 years boys doubles and Mitchell with fellow Rockhampton player Dane McKinnon in the 14 years boys event while Aldridge contested the 12 years competition.

Biloela's Alana Keys was in great touch, taking out the 18 years girls singles title as well as teaming up with Shepparton's Georgie Moore to win the 16 years girls doubles.

Bundaberg's Gayle Walters again shone, finishing runner-up in the 18 years girls singles while McKinnon reached the final of the 14 years boys singles but also missed out on the title.

'They've faced solid opposition over three events and learnt more about tennis,' he said.

'They've all come from playing on hard courts or synthetic grass or clay on to grass courts where they have to come in to volley a lot more.'
