Record Easter tournament

April 05, 2018

Open Mens’ and Womens’ singles winners Taso Vasiliadis and Olivia Rich.

All records were broken for the 120th Yarrawonga Easter Tournament with 1481 registered players. Perfect weather conditions prevailed allowing nearly 1500 people to participate in 101 different events and completing 2016 matches over the 4 days.

Players flocked to Yarrawonga from all over Australia, with some travelling from overseas to participate in the event. The tournament catered for tennis players of all ages and all abilities, ranging from 6 years of age to over 70, from D grade to the high quality Open Events. Regardless of age or ability, the Easter Tournament aims to provide a family tournament that caters for all.
The Open Mens Singles Winner, Taso Vasiliadis defeated regular Open competitor Cameron Leitch in straight sets, 6/2 6/2. Spectators were treated to superb tennis and outstanding sportsmanship.
In the Womens Open Final newcomer Olivia Rich defeated Polish competitor Monika Biernat in a tough three setter. Monika took the first set 6/0, much to the surprise of Oliva, who quickly bounced back to claim the second set 6/1. The crowd gathered for what was to be a tight final set, with Olivia finally coming out on top 6/4.
With so many players also came the many volunteers, without whom this tournament would not be possible. The courts were in immaculate condition thanks to Warrick Henderson and Rob Payne who have put in months of preparation, in addition to their morning ritual of getting the dew off the courts – YLTC thanks you for your outstanding work. Thanks also to all those people who worked in the canteen, kiosk, BBQ, bar, setting up and packing up the courts, cleaning up and in the tournament box – this is a massive event and it can only continue to run with the assistance of such wonderful volunteers.
This year we had incredible support from the local community in terms of sponsorship. Major sponsors were Mulwala Water Ski Club, Yarrawonga Mulwala Golf Club Resort, Club Mulwala and the Yarrawonga Holiday Park. We also thank our other sponsors:  Wheaton Chiropractic, Burke’s Hotel, Yarrawonga Bakery, Biggers Floorworld, Paradise Queen, Yarrawonga College P-12. We hope that everyone had a fantastic weekend and we look forward to the 2019 tournament! Jo McCarthy and Jason Bassett, Tournament Directors
