2016 Summer Pennants Results
Well done to all the RKPTC Summer Pennants teams, we had great representation this year with 18 teams in the competition, of those 9 made the final series. A solid foundation to build on for next season.
Thanks also to all the captains for their efforts in organizing their teams. We are holding our breath for the outcome of the Men’s State League decision which is expected in July this year. We also are strongly campaigning to have the Women’s Div 1 team get to the Finals next year, as well as forming some over 35 doubles teams.
Congratulations to Chris Watson (Watto) for winning the Pennants Player of the Year award for the club. This is judged on the number of wins across the Pennants events, so a great effort by Watto!
