SAWATZKY CUP raises record amount
This was a great day on Saturday, 29 January 2022, to remember past North Shore President Ross Sawatzky, when 66 competitor (a record entry) battled it out in sizzling heat to raise a record amount for the Harry Perkins Insitute of Medical Research – currently standing at $7000!.
The men’s winners were Mick Connelly, Bryan Evans, Ian Hughes and Rod Van (North Shore) who edged out Anthony Campbell (North Beach) and his Wanneroo teammates Josh Tuhoro and Gary Marashlian.
In the women’s, North Shore’s Zoe Hughes made it two in a row (she was a winner last year with a different partner), pairing with Sorrento’s Davina Dunstan to triumph. Go to our Gallery and see photos of the day!
The all-Alexander Park side of Ceri Wagnell, Vanessa Saunders and Louise Carson were women’s runners-up. Special mention to North Shore’s Keryn Grey, who through her ‘sportspersonship’ and tenacity, took out the Trophy Specialists’ Spirit of Sawatzky Award, given to the player who showed the same grit and determination that Ross did in his fight against HLH.
All winners received an amazing package of ‘goodies’ worth close to $600 EACH, including SUUNTO Smartwatches from Official Sawatzky Cup Timepiece SUUNTO. TenX Pro, Dean Howlett (Legacy Homes), and MaxiBlock Sunscreen also made massive contributions so every player who entered got a goody bag. Legacy Homes also generously covered the cost of the very cool individual trophies from Trophy Specialists for every winner and runner-up. And PM Piping (Mick Connelly), Complete Commercial Projects (Paul Snell), KC Australia (Jeff King) and the North Shore Community Hub paid for our amazing tournament shirts. Thanks also go to Pro Stringing‘s Hanru Fourie also provided five free string vouchers to five lucky recipients, Snauwaert Australia, TenX Pro, Harry Perkins Institute (supplied caps for every competitor), Golden Age of Tennis and Perfect Break Wines and extra thanks to all the companies and individuals who helped to make the day such a huge success!
