Hensman Park Tennis Club in South Perth has again won the Men’s State League competition, beating the University of WA team in a tightly fought final.
Hensman, who have won 5 of the last 6 titles, were especially pleased with this win because of the way juniors Rhys Johnston and Jason Stodart more than adequately filled the vacancies left when senior members of the team were not available this year.
Miles Armstrong a farmer’s son from Toolibin in the wheatbelt, spearheaded the magnificent win for Hensman, with a powerful display of all court tennis. Miles, who was ranked 268 on the ATP world circuit and 11th in Australia before deciding to pursue his studies, had the crowd in awe of his cannon ball serves and forehands.
The Hensman Park Tennis Club has continued to be one of the benchmarks in men’s tennis, with club coach Mark Leuba guiding them in recent years. Congratulations to all who played on the day and all those who were involved in the tournament.
