Junior tennis tournament nets a crowd

TENNIS: The Tara tennis courts were a hive of activity over the weekend as the town hosted the South West Junior Development Series tournament.

The South West region’s series have already been hosted in Warwick, Goondiwindi, Wandoan, and St George, and the state finals will take place in Rockhampton on October 15 and 16.

Tournament director Don Bell said there were about 27 juniors competing and that the tournament was a great way to introduce the young ones to playing at a competitive level.

Mr Bell said Darcy Hubbard and Dalby’s Ben Forbes both did extremely well.

The series next heads to Dalby on June 11 and 12, before coming to Chinchilla on July 30 and 31.
