On Monday we farewell Sam Cribb and Danny Nobbs who is accompanying Sam back to Fiji.  We know that Sam will perform to his very best and this huge honour shows how well Sam played while there a few weeks ago.  All the very best Sam and thanks again to Danny for his commitment to our Juniors and taking time out of his family’s life.  Please read below for more details about these events.


As the Cheryl Tennis Club had a Girls on Court day for Cancer awareness last year we are now happy to announce our Men’s version of this.  We would like to invite any males on the island to the Cheryl Tennis Club on Thursday 14th June for a free health check.  The club will be open and operating from 5.30- 6.30pm for the Health Check, so that those men playing soccer and tennis can access this great initiative prior to play.  We will also be offering a sausage sizzle for those who attend the evening.  So even though you may not normally come along, this is an open invitation to do so as we are very keen to promote Mens Health.  This is a great initiative from Wagni and Central / Eastern Sydney Primary Health.  So if you have been wondering what your blood pressure, blood sugar, body mass index is then come along.  There is also a By Men… For Men… Prize Draw.  So lets get behind Mens Health Week and do this for the blokes!


The cold nights are starting to draw in and a few of the comps are looking a little smaller than usual.  Although having said that on Tuesday night we did see some new faces at tennis and it was lovely to welcome Tanya Delaney who had a great night and played some awesome shots.  So if you are looking for a great night out ladies where you can give those muscles a stretch as well then come along to our ladies comp night.  Teams will be formed in the next week.  Next Tuesday we are having a potluck following our tennis to farewell Tanya Smith, who unfortunately for us is heading back to Broome, so come along with a plate of food to share.


We hope to kick start Mavis Cup later this term as we are hosting a few events over the next few weeks, namely the Bounty Gala Day on June 10th at 2pm, and the Tourist Ministers Cup.  The list for Mavis has grown which is great but it is always good to have a lot of people to share the fun.  The cost is $5.00 per person.  If you are interested in playing a social game of tennis on a Saturday afternoon at 4.30pm then please give Gill a call on 56878 to get involved.  If you are interested and can’t find a partner then let us know and we will do our best to find one!  It is a great comp for those wanting to get back into tennis or for those who enjoy having a hit, so get along for a fun weekend comp!

Junior Report:

Norfolk Island is off to the 2018 Pacific Nations Cup!

Whilst competing in the West Pacific Regional Championships this month in Fiji, Sam Cribb was asked to represent Norfolk Island and take part in the 2018 Pacific Nations Cup.  This event will be held in Lautoka Fiji from the 31st May to 5th June. 


This is an International Tennis Federation (I.T.F.) sanctioned and funded tournament for the Pacific region and will be an invaluable opportunity for Sam and other Pacific Island players. The Nations Cup will bring together the best tennis players in the Pacific and will be a prelude to what we will expect in tennis for the Pacific Games in 2019. Other Nations competing in this event include Fiji, American Samoa, Cook Islands, FSM, Kiribati, NMI, Palau, PNG, Samoa, Solomon Islands, Tahiti, Tonga, Tuvalu & Vanuatu. 


As this is a National team competition, Sam will be teaming up with a player from PNG, Matthew Stubbins.  Matthew lives in Australia but has played Davis Cup for the Pacific. This is a fantastic opportunity for Sam to further develop his tennis and gain insight and knowledge from other high ranked players. The format for this competition will be similar to a Davis Cup event.   


Danny Nobbs will be accompanying Sam on this trip as coach/manager.  On behalf of Sam and the Cheryl Tennis Club, we would like to thank Danny for his support and guidance that he will provide to Sam.  Sam would also like to thank Melissa, Danny and Jimmy for their coaching advice and sharing their expertise with him.  We wish Sam all the best in Fiji next week and know he will do Norfolk proud.


From the West Pacific to the Pacific Oceania Junior Championships

In July, Sam will again be returning to Fiji along with Hannah Wright to compete in the Pacific Oceania Junior Championships.  They both qualified for this event by finishing in the top 4 for their age group at the recent West Pacific Regional’s.  This is a huge achievement to have 2 Norfolk Island representatives at this tournament.  They represent and play for the West Pacific and compete against East and North Pacific countries.  The standard of this tournament is extremely high with some of the players already having world rankings in the junior ranks. The top players at this tournament are then invited to go on an Australian tour at the end of the year.


Hannah and Sam will continue their training for the next coming weeks so they can go back to Fiji and be competitive with the best in the Pacific.  Hannah and Sam are great ambassadors for Norfolk and we know they will put in the hard work and do Norfolk proud. 


Photos show both Sam and Hannah in finals action in Fiji.

Well it has certainly been a quieter week this week at the tennis club.  There were some farewells on the weekend flowing through to the early week flights and things have started to get back to normal.


The ladies had a great social night on Tuesday with 8 ladies braving the cold and the rain for a hit!  We will try again for Round 7 next Tuesday and have decided to make the final the week after with supper to follow to farewell one of our lovely ladies, Gaby, who is heading off to Australia, after three months here on Norfolk.
