Nelson & Marlborough team up to take third place in South Islands Team Event.
Eight of Nelson's best tennis juniors teamed up with Marlborough to take part in the ASB South Island Queen's Birthday 10s and 12s teams event in Timaru.  
Teams consisted of four girls and four boys in the 10-year-old and 12-year-old age groups, involving eight players each from Nelson and Blenheim, who competed against teams from five other South Island regions. Both teams finished third.  
Five rounds saw the 10s team take on South Canterbury in the first round, beating them 9-3, showing strength in both the singles and doubles combinations. This theme continued in the second round against Otago, winning 9-3.  Round three was dominated by Canterbury City, who won 11-1, with Canterbury Country also too strong in round four, beating Tasman 10-2. However, the 10s finished on a triumphant note, beating Southland 11-1.
The first round of the 12s saw an even battle against South Canterbury, Tasman securing the win at 8-4. The next round was a 12-0 clean sweep against Otago with convincing wins by all Tasman players. The fight was on in the third round with Tasman losing 9-3 to Canterbury City before a similarly hard-fought battle took place against Canterbury Country with Tasman winning 8-4. The final round ended on a high for the 12s who romped to a substantial 12-0 win against Southland.
Nelson players - 10s team: Olivia Smith (Stoke), Rani McGuire (Hope), Emma Langford (Motueka), Kvido Taylere (Stoke). 
12s team: Marshall Hore (Wakefield), Alex Brogan (Tasman), Monique Hore (Wakefield), Olivia Hiku (Stoke).
Timaru - Nelson
Nelson juniors gain Gardiner Trophy back from Marlborough 36-20.
Brilliant Sunday sunshine saw Nelson juniors regain the Gardiner Trophy on their home turf yesterday.  The Gardiner Trophy is the largest junior tennis fixture on Nelson Bay Tennis Association calendar.  It involves 10 year olds through to 16 year old boys and girls; 32 juniors from Nelson compete against Marlborough in singles, doubles and mixed doubles. The venue for the fixture alternates between Nelson and Blenheim each year.  This year the trophy was contested at Tasman Tennis Club.  The fixture is in its fourth year with Nelson winning three out of the four fixtures.  Marlborough being the holder of the 2013 trophy meant that Nelson had to pull out all the stops to bring the trophy back.
Nelson 10 year olds dominated their age group with a final score of 14-2. Ryan Mairs (Moutere Club) and Kvido Tayerle (Nelson Lawns Club) showed particular fortitude, coming back from 5-2 down to win 9-8 against Oscar Sandford-Jury and Liam Blackmore. 
The Marlborough 12 year olds proved too strong, with Marlborough edging ahead to a 10-6 win.  Samantha Scott (Nelson Lawns) and Olivia Hiku (Stoke Club) played fantastic tennis winning their doubles despite being 4-2 down in the second set against Carla Hauswirth and Bella Rose. Both girls went on to win their singles and doubles.
The 14’s age group showed strength and unity beating their Marlborough counterparts 12-4. Both the doubles and mixed doubles combinations dominated play with Nelson losing only 1 doubles game out of 8.  
The oldest age group (16’s) saw a tie at 4 matches all.  Melle Van Duijn (Nelson Lawns) and Sam Edens (Hope Club) were a particularly good combination breezing through their doubles 6-2, 6-2, against Lee Harbourne and Josh Winter. Both Sam Edens and Holly Mace (Nelson Lawns) had convincing singles wins.  Sam Edens played consistently good tennis winning both of his doubles and his singles.  Congratulations to all our juniors both for being selected to represent Nelson and for bringing back the Gardiner Trophy.

TNZ National Teams Event 2014. Wellington.

Nelson Bays youngsters Monique Hore and Jordan Berry were key components as an injury hit Tennis Canterbury girls teams still managed to fight their way to bronze medal in the Tennis New Zealand 12 year and under National Teams Event in Wellington.  After losing the number 1 player from the team just 48 hours before the event all the girls had to step up one place and still managed to take home a medal.  Berry won 6 of her 10 games and Hore 4 of 8 and justified their selection after solid performances over the past 12 months in a number of tournaments.  The five girl team was dominated by Tasman players with Marlborough’s Jade Otway also playing well.  Tennis Canterbury improved significantly in its results from 2013 with two golds won in the Boys 12’s and 14’s divisions, two silvers in the 16 year old events to go with the girls 12’s effort.  The result lifted Canterbury to 2nd overall in the region of the year competition.
