Goulburn Tennis Network’s representative team claimed third place in the rain-interrupted Bradtke-Luczak Cup on Sunday.
Shepparton Lawn Tennis Club’s Vince Godden, Jordon Butts and Olivia Quigley and Tatura Lawn Tennis Club’s Jacqui Hall represented Goulburn in the under-15 mixed event, with nine other regions also participating.
The team travelled to host town Wodonga on Friday night, but heavy rain overnight which continued into Saturday morning in the area saw the first day of play abandoned.
Goulburn’s team manager Laurel Baxter-Butts said all the team managers had a meeting on Saturday where the options for play were discussed.
On Sunday the matches consisted of six-game sets, with mixed doubles as planned, but doubles replaced singles sets.
Butts partnered Quigley for the mixed doubles and Godden played with Hall.
‘‘They were really happy to get out there and Sunday was perfect weather for tennis, really. The courts were fine, they drained really well,’’ Baxter-Butts said.
She said Tennis Victoria representatives also organised some basketball games on Saturday night so the players could ‘‘get together and get out because they had been cooped up all day’’.
Goulburn finished second in its pool of five teams after winning all but one of its matches.
In the semi-finals the team lost to Barwon and in the play-off for third and fourth it had a narrow win over Wimmera, 2-19 to 2-16.
Central Gippsland, the team to beat Goulburn in the pool matches, won the grand final against Barwon.
Baxter-Butts said Godden, Butts, Quigley and Hall played 12 sets from the day between an early 8
But she said they coped well with the demands of the day.
