Here is two photos of our division 2 junior interclub team, one at Papamoa and on at a training session.


The team had their first win (2 draws and 1 loss), on Saturday and look to be making the playoffs next Saturday.  The children loving their new shirts thanks to Mike Ranston at Brandfuel for his sponsorship.


Taupo came third in Division two and second in division seven.  The children loving it.

Tennis BOP would like to congratulate Boaz Mellor from the Taupo Tennis Club on his selection in the Tennis Waikato Bays (made up of Tennis Waikato/Thames Valley, Tennis Western BOP, Tennis Eastern [Hawkes Bay/Poverty Bay] and TBOP) team to play at the Tennis New Zealand National Junior Tournament being held in Christchurch mid-January.


Three TBOP players were selected for the TWB team. They are: Nick Beamish (U16 boys – Rotorua Tennis Club), Tara Purcell (U16 girls – Whakatane Tennis Club) and Boaz Mellor (U14 boys – Taupo Tennis Club).
