On Saturday the 20th of August 5 teams battled it out at the annual Burwood Tennis Club Trivia Night, hosted by long time Burwood Member and Toptenn Coach Ashwyn Perera. Ash volunteered to take the trivia night reign’s after Tristan Harper, who ran the event last year, was unavailable with university commitments.

Despite having gigantic shoes to fill, Ash continued the trend of charismatic presenters and put the entire night together which tested teams on their music, history, geography, sport (including tennis of course!) and even physical skills through mini games in between rounds.


It was the Creaming Sod as captained by BTC member Hamish Clark who took home the red wine, followed closely by Celine Tan and Robbie Duncan’s Vanilla Bears & CO. In 3rd place was Sue Daglish’s BTDTs. The Toffinators, led by Natalie Bacon, finished next ahead of the Girls + 1 captained by Denese Bacon. At the end of the day the real winner was the Burwood Tennis Club, with some of the clubs greatest members and their families gathering to re-ignite old rivalries and share in some good old fashioned club fun. German exchange Sabina Hillier from the Creaming Sodas said was the most Australian thing she had seen since arriving in April, “Everyone was so warm and friendly. They were so happy to join in and have a good time.”

Special mention goes to Ron Simpson who pulled off the double act as responsible barman and no-nonsense bouncer.
