All three teams also earned promotion to the higher regional grades for the second half of the season, due to recom- mence in late January. For the first time in its 40-year history, Whitby Tennis will have three teams in the premier grades of men's and women's tennis -- a men's Regional 2 team, a men's Regional 3 team, and a women's Regional 3 team. Both the top men's team and women's teams finished their round-robin competitions as winners by a clear six points, while the men's Regional 3 team finished second in a very tight, competitive Slazenger 1 grade, where only five points separated the top five teams going into the final round of matches. Nothing was really con- firmed until after the last round, so it was great to come out with a good 5-1 win when it mattered,'' said team captain Glenn Johnston. The women's team completed a perfect eight out of eight win- ning run, while the men's Regional 2 team dropped just one match of seven. Underlining this success was the performance of the club's No 2 men's player Jake Shugg, who completed a perfect record of seven doubles wins, as well as seven singles wins -- without dropping a set in any singles match he played. The season got off to a good, strong, start with two early 6-0 wins. That sort of kicked up our team confidence, and everyone played really well from then on,'' said Colin Morris, captain of the men's Regional 2 team. The other five senior teams finished mid-table in their respective grades, and maintained their position in the same grade for next season. Additionally, with nine junior Interclub teams across the six grades in the Kapi Mana junior competition, Whitby Tennis is the equal largest junior club (along with Paraparaumu) in the Kapi Mana region, encompassing tennis clubs from Johnsonville to Otaki. The junior teams all performed with distinction as well, boding well for the future of the club, with top two placings achieved by Whitby teams in each of the boys' A, boys' B, and boys' C grades.

Duelling: Amberlee Faint-Rafferty and Callum Pritchard tussle in the semifinal pre-start battles. Paremata on a roll in starling nationals Paremata's Callum Pritchard will represent Wellington at the National Starling Match Racing Championships in Auckland in January. The trials were held on Pauatahanui Inlet on November 26 in light breezes that swung slowly from the southeast to northwest. Setting the courses was chal- lenging, for both the race com- mittee and the competitors,'' said Roger Cook, the principal race officer and Paremata coach. For- tunately, it settled into perfect conditions for the knockout semifinals and finals''. The round-robin competition was hard fought with Paremata Boating Club's Pritchard, Amber- lee Faint-Rafferty and Jonathon Francis tied at the top of the table. Clubmate Hannah Corke filled the last semifinal position. Faint-Rafferty and Corke are members of the 2011 Wellington Secondary Schools Match Racing champion Aotea College sailing team; Pritchard and Francis are from the up and coming Hutt International Boys' School match racing team. The skills these four sailors have learnt over winter in the Port Nicholson Yachting Trusts youth match racing programme was telling,'' Cook said. The pre-start manoeuvring and races in the semifinals were intense with Pritchard beating Faint-Rafferty and Francis defeating Corke. Pritchard took an early 2-nil lead over Francis in the first-to- three finals, dominating Francis in the pre-starts and expertly pro- tecting his lead in the race. Francis fought back hard in the third race gaining a penalty over Pritchard and sailing away to a comfortable win. But Pritchard was not down and despite collecting a penalty in the pre-start, managed to control the start to not lose any time, exonerating himself from the pen- alty and went on to win the 2011 trials. Pritchard made it two-in-a-row for Paremata, with Josh Cook winning last year. He joins many of New Zealand's great sailors (such as Russell Coutts, Dean Barker, Chris Dickson, Glen Sowry and David Barnes) who have excelled at junior match racing.
