This year’s Frank Sedgman Cup which was held in Bairnsdale on Saturday 30 July and Sunday 31 July, 2022.
Our Waverley team of 11 and under players was Bryn Baik, Will Brooks-Gay, Samantha Morales, and Victoria Shi.
Twelve teams from metropolitan and country regions travelled to Bairnsdale to play a round robin against teams from across Victoria. After winning our 3 matches in Group B on Day One (16 sets-104 games) we progressed to the semi finals defeating Bayside Regional 5-34 to 1-15. We then went on to win the final against Eastern Region 5-34 to 1-21. A very exciting weekend for our team.
Stephen Kaldawi (our Waverley Team coach) came along to support our team. He was a member of the Inaugural Frank Sedgman Cup Event which was played in Bendigo in 2006. Waverley won the event in 2008 and 2009 - so 13 years since our last win.

Our team of Aedan Nelson, Steven Klasan, Christiana Masvosva and Kayla Yip travelled to Bairnsdale to play the 11 and under Tennis Victoria event.
We won our way into the semi final and drew North Eastern Juniors to play in the semis. At the end of the match we were both even on sets and games so both pairs of mixed had to play another mixed set to decide who would proceed to the Final. Waverley came up trumps winning by one game. We then met Eastern Region at the end of match we were even on sets but ERT were up by 6 games.
Team played extremely well and were a credit to the Association and were asking when the next event was on!!!
