Merimbula Tennis Club's autumn/winter competition has concluded with a win for the Wombats who went into the finals in fourth place.

Under the guidance of their number one player Logan Staight, Shannon Sutton, Denise Dion and John Tobias moved up in the rankings to secure a place as one of the final four teams.

Starting in February the competition finished in June with four top teams playing each other. Despite going in as the underdogs at number four, the team pulled out all the stops to perform on the night and take top spot.

Two teams - Potoroos and Dingoes - tied for the runner up position which set up a one-point table tennis knockout in the club house as a decider for the number two slot.

Potoroos number one player Matt Stroud played the winning shot for his team of Luke Walters, Eric Godward and Travis Clayton.

The next tennis competition is expected to start in August.
