On Saturday, April 6 it was the Northam Lawn Tennis Club Men's Open Day, held in pristine playing conditions and proudly sponsored by Byfields, Elders, CBH and Boekeman Machinery. 

Players from Perth and local were welcomed by Club captain Reuben Thompson who ran the day smoothly and enjoyed watching a high standard of tennis being played from both divisions. After the presentations, a meal and celebration drinks finished off the day.

The winners of A-grade were Geoff Dwyer and Jordan Powell and runners-up were Brendon McAlphine and Aiden Crabb.

The A-reserve winners were John Dwyer and Tim Powell; with runners-up being Reuben Thompson and Dennis Saunders.

Sunday, April 7 was social tennis and the Club Member of the Year award, followed by a casserole tea and a night to remember the tennis season we have had. 

Thank you to all the ladies for well cooked casseroles and sweets which were enjoyed by all members on the night.

The award is donated and sponsored by Dennis and Kathy Saunders, with this year's winner being announced by president Julie Smith.

This year's Club Member of the Year award was won by Lynne Tagliaferri for outstanding effort in coordinating the junior coaching.
