The champions of the 2022 season at the Katanning Tennis Club were crowned in March and early April after an eventful competition between local players. Despite the ongoing redevelopments at the Katanning Country Club, a number of tournaments returned this year, including the club championships. In the women’s singles, Tanja Le Roux edged out Brooke Dellacqua to win her first championship. Geoff Stade won the men’s singles title, defeating Brad Rundle in the final. In the women’s doubles, Emily McGuire and Jess Caldwell featured prominently as they narrowly defeated runners-up Felicity Clegg and Le Roux. Geoff Stade continued his hot singles form in the doubles where he partnered with Travis Obst to overcome David Stade and James Laurino and secure the men’s title. The mixed doubles was a hard-fought battle in wet conditions but Clegg and Rundle emerged victorious, edging out runners-up Claire Payne and Geoff Stade in the final. In the open doubles tournament on February 19, Dellacqua and Nita Kirwan-Ward snagged top honours in the women’s A-grade division. In the B-grade women’s division, Stacey Hawkes and Vanessa Hillman finished on top. In the A-grade men’s division, Les Bairstow and Kat Myburgh were triumphant in their partnership. After dominating the women’s A-grade doubles tournament for a number of years, Clare King and Alex Riggall made the decision to switch over to compete in the men’s B grade division and the Tenterden pairing had no issue with the level of competition as they swept the field with ease, winning the title. Chad Davidson and Ben Hall were the winners in men’s C-grade and David McFall and Will Emery overcame their opponents in D-grade. Meanwhile junior coaching has finished up for the season and will start again in October. Junior development has been a major focus for the Katanning Tennis Club and coach Justin McGuire’s guidance has proved fruitful for the young budding superstars who have been competing well in junior tournaments across the Great Southern.
