REPORT TO NCTC ANNUAL GENERAL MEETING JUNIOR DEVELOPMENT 2016



INTER COUNTY TEAMS – We continued to have strong representation in the junior Inter County Tennis Association, with 4 teams, a Boys Majors, Boys A and two teams in the new “Future Stars” U12/U10 league. Our Boys Majors team and Boys A team both won their Divisions and went to the Aviva Centre for the ICTA Championships, where they both won their league championships. During the presentation ceremonies, Alex C., Glenn B., Nicole C., Gabe C., Burke R. and Michael v.S. were recognized with awards for participation and performance. Michael was also awarded the ICTA Junior Achievement award, our third in four years, following Tristan M. in 2013 and Connor H. last year. 


JUNIOR CLUB TOURNAMENT – Our year-end junior club championships were held Saturday September 10, with 33 participants. The winners were as follows: U12 - Champion: Sebastian B.; Finalist: David B.; Junior Open - Champion: Liam D.; Finalist: George G.


JUNIOR PARTICIPATION – Beyond the teams and junior club championships, we tried to organize special junior events, including our “under the lights” Saturday evening events.


JUNIOR ACHIEVEMENT AWARD - The main junior award for the year is the Susan Swail Junior Achievement Award, awarded to the junior best combining results, improvement, participation, and sportsmanship. This year’s winners were Liam Draxl and Nicole Clarke. Each will receive prizes and individual plaques from Val Swail, and a free membership from the club for next summer as in the past. They are also enshrined on the permanent plaque in the clubhouse.


SPECIAL THANK YOU

We would like to take this opportunity to thank Val for his 26 years of service to NCTC, including the last 22 years with the junior program. Our young tennis players thank you. We wish you all the best!
