Hawera grass Courts Tennis Tournament




















Here is a picture of my certifacates up above.

On Sunday the 27th of December 2015 myself {Jorja} along with my sister Madaline played in a tennis tournament in Hawera. The tournament was for all ages from 10 years which is my age and to 16 years of age. One boy who was there and he was 16 years old in the best in New-Zealand for the 16 year old's . Myself {Jorja} and Madaline my sister have been playing tennis for the club Okaiawa for 3 years now, you may have even seen my post about the Okaiawa parade which we came second in the placing but if you haven't here is a link to the post.

My first girl I faced was a great tennis player and came to the tournament because she wanted rankings from the game for the asb classics in Auckland. She was great!! We played one set up to nine and she beat me 9-0 she won. Also they came all the way from Wellington to come to this day so she was really serious about it. Well as me I drove 15 minutes from our house. Hawera is located in south Taranaki, New Zealand. 

I played five games including a game of doubles that I played with my sister (Madaline) we lost 9-7. I got runner up in the ten year old girls. But also...... I had 4 games in the 12 year olds and I'm only ten I got moved up into the 12 year olds as there were only two ten year old girls. 

I also got a lot of stuff I for winning the plate for the twelve year olds and getting runner up in the ten year olds. I got adidas pants, $10 and soap also the certifacates of course. Do you play tennis? Do you go to tournament? Or even watch tournaments? These are questions I am asking myself!! Let me know in the comments below I love hearing from you.

    Really great series of posts that you've been putting together during your own time. The depth and the quality of the writing that you're putting forward is sensational. I really enjoyed reading about this topic and I think that you did really well - you were of course competing against older children which is something to be proud of. Fantastic post.
