Weekly sports roundup from Bombala golf, Delegate Tennis and Bibbenluke Junior Rugby League

Tennis Clinic

There was a tennis clinic in Delegate on Saturday morning that was made possible due to sponsorship funding from Snowy Monaro Regional Council.

Thirty children braved the blustery, windy conditions while having a great time, and learning some fantastic new skills and games. The day would not have been so successful without the enthusiasm and expertise of Maree Coates and Joyce Reed.

Su King from the Delegate Tennis Club said, the Tennis Clinic was decided to help the children become more familiar with actual comp games, and came off the back of the successful tennis season of lessons made possible through the Delegate Tennis Club.

“The future of tennis in Delegate has a strong future,” she said.


Bombala Golf Club ladies played a Stableford for Club Trophy on Wednesday. Di Ingram found a little form winning with 38 pts. Balls were won by Joy Douch 37 pts and Gay Kennedy 32 pts. Di and Joy both had shockers on the 16th losing balls and wiping the hole.
