THE sleeping giant of the Barossa &
Gawler Combined Tennis Associa-
tion, Kapunda, is ready to awake for
the 2014/15 season and make a bid at
The club's dominance in recent years has
been well-documented, winning 10 of the
past 13 premierships.
Nuriootpa claimed the title in 2013/14,
following an outstanding season on the
court, and the challenge is now set for Ka-
punda, whose Red side finished third last
season, to rise once again.
Kapunda committee member, and player,
Nick Wuttke said the mood around the club
is positive leading up to the first round of
competition this Saturday and that the play-
ers will certainly be doing their best to re-
turn to the top.
"We want to win every year," Wuttke
"We hold ourselves as a competitive club,
we want to be successful in each grade and
we're working towards that."
The early signs look promising for Ka-
punda, with participation numbers up on
last season and few changes to both the divi-
sion one men's and women's teams.
The future is also looking bright, with a
talented batch of young up-and-comers de-
veloping strongly to eventually replace some
of the older players at senior level in years
"It's an ageing A-grade side, and we're
probably looking to inject a bit of youth into
the side over the next year or two," Wuttke
"Our div two team has a core group of
young girls in there, and we're sort of push-
ing them through to try and get them up
to the A grade, perhaps in the next year or
"We've got a couple of really good young
juniors who we see as being able to take us to
that next step as well."
Reigning premiers Nuriootpa, which
has been right around the mark in previ-
ous seasons prior to its breakthrough flag,
will again be in contention, however the
loss of number one men's player Alex Re-
incke, to Tea Tree Gully, could have an im-
Last season's grand finalists, Lyndoch
Gold, will look to bounce back and get an-
other crack at the flag and certainly have a
great chance at doing so, while the remain-
ing sides Lyndoch Blue, Kapunda Black,
South Gawler, Xavier Saints, Tod Street and
Vine Vale are all working to ascend the lad-
der in 2014/15.

FOOTBALL: The club wrapped up the 2014
season with the senior presentation dinner
held last Friday night at The Den.
An impressive turnout saw first-year
player Jack Greatorex complete his fine
season by claiming runner-up best and
fairest in the reserves.
Whilst inspirational captain Johnathon
Costa took home his second reserves best
Hard nut Matt Foldesdy was runner-up
by a slim margin in the A grade to club
superstar Jackson Dare.
Both Jackson and Matt had fantastic
seasons, finishing second and fourth
respectively in the Schluter Medal.
The club would like to thank all players,
staff and volunteers for their efforts in
2014 and with another impressive crop of
juniors and quickly developing senior sides
it eagerly awaits 2015, and the opportunity
it presents to go one further.

CRICKET: Sunny Saturday weather
welcomed the TOSers back to the cricket
field and both A and B grade sides are in
good positions after day one of play.
The A-grade side started at home on
Waldeck against Modbury and the visitors'
batting was so boring that all we could
ascertain was they made 204 and, on debut
for the club, Anton Hill took three wickets,
as did Brodie Fraser.
Not a bad position to be in for the second
day and we're looking for a strong batting
Meanwhile, the B-grade boys played in
a sand trap against Goodwood but that
didn't stop them belting the opposition
for 9/297 with Nathan Kennedy (86), Moe
Walker (69), Brad Schaper (41) and first-
gamer Grady Hudd (23) amongst the runs.
Keith Hooker, who flew in from Singapore
for the game, obviously didn't get any
batting practise whilst on holidays, as he
hardly made a dent on the scoreboard.
Hopefully, he can do more with the ball
as the boys search for the ultimate start to
And, there might be a club fine on the
way for the B graders who got to the
ground late after a failed hunt for Subway.
Gotta do better than that, lads!
Get along to the club Thursday night
for some good socialising, while we'll also
have some news of upcoming events for
The C grade kicks off its season on
Saturday, hosting Athelstone at Gawler
RIFLES: Another fine day greeted nine
members and three visitors competing for
the N. Tamke Memorial Trophy over 900
Light left-to-right winds made for a good
day for the experienced shooters, but the
rest were caught by the changes, with
some threes resulting.
Due to the staging of the Palma match
event at Lower Light, C. Williams and P.
King from Phoenix RC were welcome
visitors, and A. Mallinson, visiting for the
second time, scored an impressive 46.2 in
his second round in TR.
J. Allen was trophy winner using 47.06
per cent and was also top off-rifle.
A. Helbig was sniper with 18.02, and in F
Class, J. Taylor was top off-rifle and sniper,
109.03 and 17.00.
Several members competed in the SA
Rifle Association annual Queen's event at
Lower Light HQ last weekend.
S. Smithson won the lead-up two-day
hunt event in F Class Standard B grade and
A. Helbig finished third (C grade) in the
Queen's three day.
Well done to both members.

GOLF: Tanunda Pines Golf Club held its
annual ladies' open day on Friday, on what
could only be described as a perfect day for
golf in the Barossa.
Women from clubs around the state
(Berri, Blackwood, Burra, Gawler, Grange,
Highercombe, Jamestown, Kapunda,
Mount Pleasant, North Adelaide, Penfield,
Renmark, Riverton, Royal Adelaide, Stirling,
Tea Tree Gully, The Vines, Waikerie, West
Lakes, Westwood Ho) not only had the
opportunity to win great prizes due to their
skills or luck of the raffle draw, they also
had the chance to test their skills on what
many are now finding to be one of the top
courses in the state.
The day started with lavender scones and
nut loaf and, as the temperature heated
up on the course, it became a game of
stamina for the 84 players to return with
respectable scores and a hunger for the
TPGC home -made chicken and beef pies
Lunch was complemented with delicious
slices provided by the women members
and the socialising in the club reflected
one of the main objectives of open days,
to meet new people who have the same
passion for a great game.
Special congratulations goes to Susan
Keylock from Gawler Golf Club, who won
with the overall gross score of 80.
LAST Sunday, under perfect skies, the annual
Gawler Petanque Championship was held.
Hosted by the Gawler Petanque Club, and
played in Dead Man's Pass, the event, in its
third year, saw strong numbers, with teams
from far and wide.
The competition is run as a round robin.
The basic skills can be picked up in a few
minutes, but a lot of practise is needed to
The playing format results in teams with
different skill levels playing each other, but
as the scores are cumulative, all teams have a
chance to be successful.
Club president Glenis Head said it was a
perfect day to play petanque, with everyone
"Many of the games went down to the wire,
with players new to the games providing solid
competition for the more experienced," she
Winners were Jeanette Martin and Penny
Maggi, who played with a lot of passion and
enthusiasm, picking up the Novice Winners

solid, consistent games to pick up the Overall
Glenis congratulated all the teams for
playing great games.
She also thanked Paul Koch for his ongoing
"Paul has been a great supporter of the
event for the last three years," she said.
Despite being a novice in the game, Mr
Koch has a lot of fun and enjoys the skill
Penny Maggi, from West Lakes, said she
really enjoyed the day, encouraging everyone
to play the game.
With the success of the event, plans are in
train for next year.
