    Welcome to 2017

    Troy Delgado to represent at State Tennis Championships

    Congratulations to Troy Delgado who will be representing the Peninsula Region at the Queensland School Sports 12&U Tennis State Championships on 04-07 August 2016 at Tennyson, Brisbane.

    Troy started playing tennis when he was ten years old and was observed to be a gifted tennis player by his coach. This was evident when he started winning in tournaments as soon as he joined. To date, he has accumulated 15 trophies and has an equally impressive Australian tennis ranking for his age.

    Well done Troy!
