We saw the continuation of the Daniel versus Hayden rivalry in the Orange final with Daniel coming out on top in this event.” he added “A great display of heroic shots from Luke Shattock. The sun came out for the green event as we endured some marathon matches and Oliver came out on top. Congratulations to all the winners!”
