Macquarie City has just held its 5th successful Winter Tournament from 29-30 June, 1st July at our Pelican courts.

On Thursday 30th June we had a lovely dinner at Pelican RSL, who were our major sponsor for the Tournament. An enjoyable time was had by all at this very social event.
We would like to thank the non-playing referees, who gave up their days to assist us also the playing referees and Barb Piggott for being our Tournament Referee. The Tournament finished with a sausage sizzle followed by the Presentation.
