After playing 8 rounds of superb tennis the Campbells Bay Women’s Chelsea Cup team managed to win themselves a place in the Final which was played against Northcote at Northcote Tennis Club. Going into the Final the team were sitting in second position only 2 points behind Northcote so there was everything to play for. Our number one player and team captain Chloe Shin was drawn against Northcote’s Nina Paripovich. Spectators were treated to a hard fought three set battle with some incredibly skilful and exciting tennis. Nina took the first set 6-2 with Chloe fighting back hard to win the second set 6-4. The final set was a real nail biter with Nina finally managing to secure a 6-2 4-6 6-4 win. Our number two player Sarah Weekley played Elys Ventura. Elys came out on fire and played an extremely aggressive game which didn’t allow Sarah into the match. Despite every effort Sarah was defeated 6-0 6-3. Our number three player Lara McNaughten played Northcote’s Paige Alter. Lara fought hard against Paige with games consistently going to deuce but on the night she wasn’t able to secure the win and went down 6-3 6-4. Our doubles specialist Trixie Muller Leiendeder had to stand in last minute for our number four singles player and played against Northcote’s Gemma Cliffe. Sadly Trixie also suffered a loss of 6-2 6-3. Our bottom doubles pairing of Victoria Hartland and Lara McNaughten played the much more experienced and much higher ranked Deanne Alter and Paige Alter. Victoria and Lara put up a good fight in the first set but finally went down 6-4 6-2. The top doubles did not have to be played as Northcote had already won the competition.
