This Sunday the Mudgee District Tennis holds Day 2 of the Club Championships.

May is Championship month at the club and Sunday will be the second of three days of tennis where the entire club has been invited to participate in the once-a-year day.

The Juniors will kick-off the day in the morning playing singles and the seniors will follow in the afternoon with Men's and Women's Doubles. 

The junior category will be hotly contested in both the Boy's and Girl's divisions with a couple of notable favourites expected to do well.

Joshua Meers in the boy's category is the early favourite to repeat last year's win but will be up against stiff competition with Tom Collins and Maguire Barrow both potentially able to take his crown.

For the girl's Charlotte Roberts, Shayna Hickey and Tahlia Cooke are likely to play well, with all able to take out the Championship.

For the first time in history, a division 2 Championship will be run in conjunction with the Opens Championship in the Men's and Women's Doubles.

The idea behind this is if a player doesn’t consider themselves strong enough to contend in the Opens, they can play in the Division 2 Championship.

In the Men's, teams Brendan Kiley & Angus Macdonald, and Andrew Channon & Ian Simpson are expected to be strong.

Young guns James Blackman and Callan Double could be a dark horse partnership, as well as Ashley Diprose and Greg Parrish.

For Division 2, father and son teams Charlie and Joshua Meers, and Wade and Maguire Barrow have thrown their hats in the ring to take it out.

Meanwhile, the Women's competition is expected to see Annie Johnson & Carolyn Smith as well as Sheridan Roth and Rachel Kearins be very strong in their division.
