The Australian Summer of Tennis starts on in late December with the Brisbane International. Playing on the courts alongside the Grand Slam Champions will be three teams from Somerset College who qualified for the South Coast in the Red, Orange and Green Brisbane International Schools’ Challenge.
The tournament will feature current US Open Singles Champions Sloane Stephens and Rafael Nadal. Somerset College is one of only two schools in the state to have a team qualify in each section. Last year’s Runners up in the Orange event will be competing for a third straight year, only this time in the Green Ball event. In all, sixteen players will be representing the School in the State finals from January 4th to 7th. We would like to wish all the competitors the best of luck.
I would like to congratulate Jack Newman and Luke Buker for their success over the weekend in winning the Gold Coast Closed tournament in the U12 doubles. Both boys will be playing in the Green Ball the Brisbane International Schools’ Challenge.
