Champ: Cobram's David Bate took out the Cobram Lawn Tennis Club's Singles Title

Proven performer: Marika Newey and Bonnie Miller. Mrs Newey prevailed in an epic three set encounter in the Ladies Club Championship Title. It was her third title.

It has been a jam-packed few weeks of action for tennis.

Cobram Lawn Tennis Club sent two women’s teams and a men’s team to Country Week in Swan Hill in what was a thoroughly enjoyable experience for all involved.

The men’s team made it to the semi-final but unfortunately went down by two games to just miss out on a berth in the grand final.

In the women’s competition, the Mojito Mixers made the grand final but fell nine games short in a tense battle.

The club recently held its annual club championships. It was a tough day for tennis, with blustery conditions greeting players.

Marika Newey defeated Bonnie Miller in an epic three-set encounter to claim her third women’s singles title.

In the men’s final, David Bate prevailed to win his first club championship, beating Peter Hollands in straight sets.

The Cobram Cobras had a busy weekend playing in an elimination final against Numurkah Penguins at Numurkah.

It was a very tight battle and came down to the mixed, with the Cobras coming away with a 6-81 to 7-74 win and keeping their finals hopes alive.

The Cobras had to back up on Sunday at Yarrawonga against Kialla Park. Going into the mixed the Cobras were 11 games in front. Rod Armstrong and Greta Lukies won 8-2, securing the Cobras a place in the grand final, which will be played at Shepparton on March 17, starting at 1.15pm.
