Photo: DENISE GUNN By DENISE GUNN firstname.lastname@example.org The second round of the Baxter Cup was contested at the Bulls Bowling Club last week among the friendly rivalry of club members. Recently donated by club members Bill and Gaye Baxter, the Baxter Cup will be awarded to a female member who earns the most aggregate points from each round played from January till May. The cup will be presented at the club's AGM in May. It gives the girls something else to play for through the year,'' said Bulls Bowling Club treasurer Flora Simpson. The Bulls Bowling Club, which currently has around 50 members, runs several tournaments through the year, including the Bulls Busi- ness House competition on Wednesday evenings. Visitors, new members and those wanting to try lawn bowls are wel- come to attend a club roll up. Come along at any time,'' said Mrs Simpson.

There was a strong local lineup in the 14 players and Feilding player Lachlan Scott toppled No 1 seed, Caleb Fleming, of Taranaki, in the quarterfinals 2/6, 6/4, 10/4. Scott put out one of his best performances ever, going on to beat Huntley player Alec Pedersen 6/2, 2/6, 10/2 in the semifinals. But another local superstar in Kurt Amey, also from Feilding Club, was too strong in the final and won the final 4/6, 6/1, 10/8. There were no surprises in the girls 12 and under with top seed Braxton Te Riini of Tu Toa Academy beating No 2 Rebekah Chamberlain of Manawatu Lawn Tennis Club 6/3, 6/0. The draw had 12 girls with seven players from the Manawatu. Monday morning saw 15 boys and 10 girls in the 14s age group competing for titles and points in the Tennis Central Points Race for the season. The calibre of entrants was strong with Tim McKenzie of Whanganui, the top seed in the draw, and Marist local Rawiri Poutu-Smith, the No 2. Poutu-Smith went down in a tough semifinal against Kieren Rooney of Feilding. After losing the first set 3/6, Rooney came back to take the second 7/6 and went on to win the super tie 10/6, and progress through to the final against McKenzie. Rooney put up a fight after losing the first set 3/6 to win the second 6/1 but couldn't keep the pressure on to go down in the super tie 12/10. In the 14s girls, second seed Phoebe Anderson was new to tournaments in the Manawatu and showed Manawatu players Shenae Salisbury and first seed Anika Patel how to play strong, low-error tennis to take out the title comfortably, beating Patel 6/1, 6/2. Anderson had earlier beaten Salisbury 6/2, 6/2 in the semis. The 10s had a small round robin of five girls and 14 in the boys' event. Nine-year-old Kurt Amey had earlier won the 12s event and went on to win the 10s event the follow- ing day, appearing unhindered by three days of singles and doubles matches in his schedule. The girls 10s was won by Sarah Munn, a player who has just moved to the Manawatu from West Harbour, Auck- land. What a racquet: Campbell Scott of Kiwitea, fore- ground, and Garfield Mwarachwa taking part in the Grasshopper Challenge at Feilding last week. The competition was aimed at players who were in the level below regionals and the Manawatu Summer Junior Open. Tennis Manawatu coach Jared Kemsley said the Grasshoppers were not being coached but getting some experience playing games against each other. ''They experience returning all kinds of shots, rather than having a coach feeding them shots.''
