Future Stars Tennis Tournament

Over the weekend, 17 of our Spartans competed at the first Future Stars Tennis Event held at Mudgeeraba Tennis Club. This is a four-part series scattered throughout the year where our Spartans will face a total of eight different clubs across the Gold Coast in Red, Orange and Green Ball.

Starting out the day were our green and red ball students. After being on court for two hours in 36-degree heat, our green ballers placed fourth and our red ballers placed second. The youngest competitor on the day and our very own spartan Ollie Brown in Prep took out the Sportsmanship Award in Red Ball, and our Year 5 Spartan Benedict Thompson received the award in Green Ball. Well done to these two students and the rest of the team:

Next, our Orange Ball Spartans took the court in what were even hotter conditions. Our eight Spartans managed to place third in what was a great display of tennis. Again, Somerset had the youngest competitors and still managed to bring home an amazing result.

Thank you to all the parents for supporting our spartan’s and our Somerset Tennis Community. We are looking forward to the next event and can hopefully take out the competition!

Summers Fixtures Season '22 to '23 Recap

During Term Four of 2022 and Term One of 2023, 28 of our Spartans competed weekly in the Tennis Summer Fixtures Season. A total of nine teams competed across the Gold Coast, battling it out for the top spot, and a spot in the finals.

On Saturday 18 March, four of our teams competed in the finals, and brought home some amazing results.

A total of 14 rounds were played across the season. The top four teams in each division would then qualify for the semi-finals, and if they were successful, they would reach the final. We had another successful season, with five of our nine teams making the semi-finals, with two of our nine teams finishing the season at the top spot, taking home the minor premieres with both teams taking out their respective divisions. After the semi-finals, four of our teams were successful and progressed to the finals.

Students Lennox Foster and Krish Bhasin played a hard-fought battle against second place in their division and won 2 to 1. Our top division students, Orion Burdett and Huw Hoffman put up a great display of tennis, winning their tie 3-nil. The boys also managed to finish the season undefeated. Tima Korin and Hamish Kennedy went down 1 to 2 in their final after playing some tough opponents, whilst Dylan Aspinall and Zavier Iseppi shared the same fortune.

It has been another successful season of Tennis Fixtures and we hope to continue this success in the Winter season starting in Term Two.

Thank you to all the parents for their ongoing support this season!
