Tennis trio selected for Southern

SHARE

North Otago tennis players Brylee More, Rebecca Dellaway and Mackenzie Phillips have been selected to their respective Southern Age Group Tennis Teams.

More and Phillips will play in the under-12 girls while Dellaway will represent the under-16s.

Only four players are selected to each age group for the southern region which encompasses South Canterbury, North Otago, Otago, Southland and Southern Lakes – making the North Otago starlets’ call-up even more impressive.

“The trio continue to punch above their weight being from a small region such as North Otago. It just shows what commitment and drive can achieve,” said North Otago Tennis Association administrate Denise More.

More and Mackenzie will next be in action in Auckland next week to compete at the National Teams Event at the Scarbro Tennis Centre while Dellaway competes at Wilding Park Tennis Centre in Christchurch as part of the Under-16s Teams Event.
