Victorian Open AC Doubles
The Victorian Open AC Doubles Championship was played at VCC over the Christmas/New Year break. Due to the work being done on the courts at Cairnlea we were restricted to 5 courts and thus had to advise players of the limitations.
We ended up with a small, but quality-laden field of 9 pairs. The top seeds were Greg and Malcolm Fletcher (Ballarat Alexandra) in one block and Robert Fletcher and Callum Hyland (Ballarat Alexandra / Sandy Bay) in the other.
Victorian Open AC Singles
This year's AC Open Singles attracted quality players from across Australia, and every state was represented in the finals.
Entry numbers were limited to 20 and most play was double banked, as we had access to only five courts - the other seven courts at the VCC are being refurbished.
