DEDICATED Harry Tracey was named player of the year at the recent Ipswich Tennis Centre Friday Finals Funday.

Head coach Beau Devlin said the trophy recognises the hardest worker player with the best attitude and all-round performance during the year.

Harry recently graduated from year 12 at West Moreton Anglican College.

"He's been a member of Devlin's Tennis Academy and Ipswich Tennis Centre since he was 10 and has always been a gentleman," Devlin said.

"I'm proud to call him a friend and look forward to us playing tennis together until our knees give out as old guys."

Devlin said the Friday Finals Funday was a huge success with a range of activities and trophy presentations for the kids and adults (see Saturday's Phantom column for the antics).

Recent results to end the season:

Wednesday Men's Challenger finals: Nic Kemp and Archie Graham defeated Scott Woodward and Tim Geddes three sets to 0.

Thursday Social Mixed finals: Andrew Bourke and Louise Brown defeated Barry Berg and Matt Berg two sets to one. Both singles were tied at one set all.

Friday Junior Masters division 1: Johno Mundy and Christian Bailey defeated Lewis Ainslie and Matt Berg two sets to one. Both singles were tied at one set all.

Friday Junior Masters division 2: Sean Malynn and Adam Wood defeated Rob Osbourne and Elisha Anderson two sets to one. Both singles were tied at one set all.

Devlin invited players wanting to be involved in 2013 competitions to drop into the revamped centre at Tivoli over the school holidays or call 0419 330 149.
