Olivia Ley and Oliver Douglas named 2019 Elderton Classic champions

On Sunday the 2019 Elderton Tennis Classic enjoyed amazing spring weather for a great day of competition.

Beginning the day at the Nuriootpa tennis courts, a round robin qualifying was held with 27 mixed doubles teams.

The Fast4 tournament was facilitated by Matt Zadow and his team from the Nuriootpa Tennis Club, as a major club fundraiser.

After lunch the event moved to Elderton's Cellar Door, for the finals which were played on the grass court.

Spectators were able to take front row seats for the finals, relax on the lawn with food by Barossa Street Food, and take a quick dip in the pool to cool off.

The 'Here to Win' category had many strong competitors, with great tennis played throughout the day.

The grand final saw some entertaining rallies played and a tough fight to the final point.
