With over 50 entrants to the competition, finalists David Hay and Jeremy Johnson had already done an amazing job just to get to the final.

And close it was….the final set went down to 5 games all, advantage all……with David Hay finally taking out the last point and winning the title after an epic final match! Congratulatiions go to both finalists and to David Hay – our new Ballarat Open Handicap Singles Champion!!!
