The Mudgee District Tennis Club's 2016 Mixed Doubles competition is set to go pink for the Pink Up Mudgee initiative on Sunday, October 23.
Proudly supported by Flight Centre Mudgee.
Appropriately renamed the Pink Club Championships, participants will be encouraged to don the pink to help support the McGrath Foundation.
It's all about involvement and it's great that the club has been able to rejuvenate the Club Championships after the long hiatus it did have, helping to continue to add history to the club for many years to come.Angus MacDonald, Club Championships organiser
The final will then be played with pink balls.
Mudgee District Tennis Club President Cameron Anderson said it was an easy choice to go pink around the club.
"The Pink Up Mudgee initiative is something the club believed was important to support,” he said.
“The clubhouse has been 'pinked up' in preparation for the club championships and we're hoping to be able to contribute not only to the awareness of the McGrath Foundation but also be able to give a donation to the cause"
In only the second year since its re-instatement, this year is already promising to be tightly contested with last year's Doubles pairing not contesting as a team.
Despite its name, the Club Championships are all about participation with a second chance draw given to people unable to make it through the main draw.
This allows for more evenly matched teams to face each other in a plate format ensuring the whole field gets a whole day of tennis.
Club Championships organiser Angus MacDonald said it's great to see the Mixed Championships return for another year.
"It's all about involvement and it's great that the club has been able to rejuvenate the Club Championships after the long hiatus it did have, helping to continue to add history to the club for many years to come," he said.
"Flight Centre Mudgee is into its second year of supporting the Club Championships and none of this would be possible without their support."
