Thank you everyone for supporting our biggest fundraising action of the year - the Australian Closed 2018, amateur humanitarian tennis tournament.
This was the 6th consecutive year, held once again, at the Warringah Recreation Centre in North Manly
This time our goals is to donate Edufeedback Play Attention System to Centar za Socijalni Rad Šamac, Republic Srpska, Bosnia and Herzegovina. This system is crucial in providing therapies in a fun and entertaining way to children who have any types of developmental delays and attention and behavioural issues. CSR Šamac will offer these treatments to children who have identified needs, they will work closely with schools and child care centers, and also with children in other neighbouring municipalities.
We are very grateful to be able to also support one of the local children’s charities this year. More info to follow in the next couple of weeks.
Our tournament was very successful despite our competitors battling extreme weather conditions, heat and strong winds. Congratulations to all!
The winner in the male tennis competition is Alex Koncar, and the runner up is Velimir Kanazir.
The winner in the women competition is Tia Vuk Luboya, and the runner up is Ana Petrovic.
This year we introduced table tennis, which was really popular with 16 competitors playing.
The winner is again Alex Koncar and runner up is Damir Terzic.
We were fortunate to have a special guest, the famous actor from Serbia, Ivan Bekjarev to support our tournament and to MC and to hand out certificates to all participants and special trophies and prizes to winners and runners up.
Our sponsors, Cars in Action and u-neXt Entertainment have donated prizes for winners and runner up, such as limousine drives, Rade Serbedzija concert and Zijah Sokolovic theatre tickets. Thank you.
