Summer is almost here and with it comes a big season for the Martinborough Lawn Tennis Club. Not only do we have the usual Business House, junior programme, senior interclub, midweek ladies and Over The Hill tournament planned, but we also have a major upgrade to the artificial courts on the cards. In collaboration with the Martinborough junior hockey and senior netball clubs, a project is underway to replace the two worn artificial courts, purchase moveable nets and install court lighting. This exciting multi-sport development is dependent on getting the required funding, but is hoped to be completed over the next few months. In the meantime here is what’s coming up and how to get involved:

The-Pumas The Martinborough Puma’s 8th Grade football team had a great start to the season notching up a few wins and draws. As the season progressed a combination of cold weather, sickness and fatigue resulted in a drop in the goal count. Practices were often chaotic but fun was always had by all. The Puma’s and their parents are now looking forward to sleeping in on Saturday mornings!

Exciting season

Exciting-seasonThe Kahutara School Year 5/6 miniball team played an awesome season this term, finishing second on the table and playing off for first and second in the finals against Greytown. They played their hearts out and put in such a strong effort, but went down 42-30. Coach Brodie Wilson said how proud of how everyone in the team has developed over the term, congratulations team!

The school’s hockey team also had a very successful season in many cases playing teams from much larger schools. As with the mini ball team they were in a finals play off, in this case against Dalefield. The game ended with a one all draw and so went into extended time, and then into nail biting sudden death goal time which saw the goal scored by Dalefield.
