We are just over halfway through the Winter Junior Competition season. Our four Saturday teams and eight Sunday teams brave the cold starts each weekend and are displaying very admirable efforts. Four of our twelve junior teams currently sit in the top four of their division.
A particular well done to these teams:
Sunday S/D Open Rubber B3; who are undefeated so far and haven’t lost any of their eight rounds
Saturday Open Triples C2; who are playing a great season sitting in third place on the ladder
Saturday Boys Triples C2; who sit in fourth and are playing very well
Sunday S/D Triples CSp1; who are in the top four sitting comfortably in fourth position
All EMTC Junior teams have been playing hard and putting in great efforts and deserve congratulations for their feats. Those teams who are not currently in the top four sit just outside, and with six rounds left in the season, there is still plenty of time for all players to continue playing well and battle their way up the ladder!
Well done to all our competition teams.
