Australia's no. 1 coach

Kane Townsend and Melissa Tapper clinch the final automatic positions

In what was an exciting day of TT at the Gold Coast TT Club, Kane and Melissa secured their spots in the Australian Team for this year's Commonwealth Games by winning today's 2nd Round Robin. 

Both spots came down to the last match where Kane defeated Chris Yan yet another 7 setter for the tournament while Melissa had to rely on Michelle Beaumont to defeat Claire Campbell-Innes in which she did in, yes another one, a 7 set thriller. 

Well done to all players who now will compete at the C'wealth Games. They are,


David Powell

William Henzell

Kane Townsend



Jian Fang Lay

Sally Zhang

Melissa Tapper


A nervous wait for players hoping to gain selection for the 4th and 5th spots in the team. This will be known at a later date.
