Summary

This is the final year for Pascal in the U15 championship which started in 2013 (Sydney), 2014 (Launceston), 2015 (Adelaide) and lastly Darwin. He has matured as a competitor and was nominated the team captain.  He played 3 matches in each team tie and played pivotal matches to help the team achieve its final standing. He achieved sound results in the Individuals events and was ranked 8th in Singles nationally.

This is the first year for both Aline and Cédric in the carnival, they participated as reserve players to supplement the team as conditions were difficult (36 degree heat with high humidity).  Both had good exposure to the rigour of competition, a special mention to Cédric who played 2 key matches to help the Territories place 2nd in Pool A, ensuring at least a 4th place overall.  For his effort, he was featured in the local newspaper.
