This result moves Prospect up to third position on the premiership table. We had five teams competing and all played well. The scoring system only allows our first two places to be counted on the day. Anna Phillips, Kym Wilson and Richard Huntley just missed out when they won 3 of their 5 games.
Prospect was well represented in the State Singles Competitions and we are pleased to announce that Melissa Scott is the South Australian Women’s Singles Champion and Van Tie Nguyen was runner up in the Men’s Singles competition.
Well done Melissa and Van – you have done us proud!!
