Local success at Country Week

LOCAL tennis teams the Maffra Jokers and the Fauna Park Tennis Club Peacocks have been written into Tennis Victoria’s Country Week history, following glorious victories in the state’s north last week.

After a scrupulous selection process, more than 30 Wellington Gippsland Tennis Association players made the five-hour trip to the Shepparton-Mooroopna area to play the five-day tournament on pristine lawn courts.

In the men’s special B2, the Maffra Jokers, consisting of Mitchell Allman, Jake Weir, Mick Luke and Patrick Deery, finished the week in second place.
