After some tough battles the Wellington players at the Senior Nationals have completed the team events. The individual events are up next.
A write up of the Men’s title is on Matt Hetherington’s Blog and he also has a write up on the Women’s team title too. Be sure to check those articles out.
Catherine Zhou was drafted into a team with Waikato – see here for match details (the last 2 pages).
For the Wellington Men’s team (Callum Rusbridge, Andrew Rieper, Frank Fu, Stephen Hirst, Paul Solt) they made it into the A grade after winning a tough grading match 4-3 over North Harbour 2. Callum won 12-10 in the fifth set of a tense deciding match! In the A grade they finished 7th of the 8 teams in this (the top) grade which is a great effort. The A Grade match details are here (further down) – but are not complete yet as of the time I write this.
Watch TTNZ for official updates and details of the teams and individual events. It is interesting to also see John Cordue in action – those of us who were playing in the mid 90’s will remember John from his much younger days in Wellington!
