The Bundaberg Closed Championships were held on Friday 2nd, Saturday 3rd and Sunday 4th September.

Thirteen year old Bundaberg State High student Rebecca Tran's stellar year continued last weekend when she won both the Women’s Open Singles and the Under 18 Girls’ Singles at the Bundaberg Radiology Bundaberg Closed Table Tennis Championships. Following on from winning the Under 13 Girls’ Singles at the Queensland Junior Championships and the Women’s Open Singles at the Bundaberg Open Championships early in the year, as well as several other titles at both events, then claiming two medals at the Australian Junior Championships, Tran again put her outstanding talent on display, especially in the Women’s Singles in which she survived several match points before defeating Shaina Green, the champion for the last three years, 15/13 in the seventh game of a brilliant final. They had earlier contested the Under 18 Girls final as well, Tran winning that event in four games. Tran completed her weekend's work with victory in the Restricted Doubles with Briahna Connolly. However, the depth and quality of the Bundaberg Junior girls was shown with Tran's Queensland Under 13 team mate, Tahnee Green, winning both the Under 15 Girls’ Singles and Under 13 Girls Singles, the first from Leah Scott with Tran third, the other from Tran in a tight four game battle.

The Men’s Open Singles saw Queensland Under 15 champion, Hayden Green, claim that title, also for the first time, defeating last year's runner-up Brett Fourro in five games. After the first two games were shared, Green's confidence grew as Fourro's waned, to take the last three games comfortably. Green also won the Under 18 Boys title, defeating Fourro in four games of the final match in a round robin. Previously, Fourro had beaten Green in the final of the Junior A Singles in another hard-fought four games. Green also won the Under 15 Boys’ Singles from his Queensland Junior team mate, Leyton Ey, in a very entertaining five game tussle, as well as the Men’s Open Doubles with his father, Darren, and the Under 15 Doubles with Ey. In that match, they defeated Tahnee Green and Leah Scott who had beaten them for the Junior A Doubles title in possibly the biggest upset of the tournament. Green and Scott went on to win the Women’s Open Doubles, while Scott shared the A Reserve Doubles with another Queensland Junior representative, Sam Freeman.

Several other players also won multiple titles. Peter Spratley totally dominated the Veteran events, winning six events from Over 40s to Over 60s. These included the Men’s Over 40 Singles, Over 40 Doubles with Andrew McCurley, the Over 40 Mixed Doubles with Michele Brockhurst, the Over 50 Singles in which he recovered from 7/10 in the fifth game against from McCurley, the Over 55 Doubles with Nev Newitt after another near-miracle and the Over 60 Singles. Brockhurst added the Women’s Over 40 Singles plus the B Grade Singles and B Grade Doubles, the latter with Andrew Udal who was the most prolific winner of the tournament. His seven victories included the Boys’ Under 13 Singles, the Under 13 Doubles with brother Matthew, the Junior B Singles and Junior B Doubles with Nicholas Jefferson, and both the Junior and Open AWD / Special Olympics Singles. Matthew Udal won another three titles including the Under 11 Singles and Doubles (with Lockie Green). Another to impress was twelve year old Braydon Chapman who won four titles - the Junior C Singles and Doubles, with Matthew Udal, on Friday then, to end the tournament, the C Grade Doubles with Odin Luketic and the Men’s C Grade Singles in a wonderful four game final against his doubles partner.

In all, over 70 players competed in almost fifty events over the three days of the tournament.
