Tournament organiser Kylie Lockyer said it was rewarding to see the event so well supported and made possible by parents and sponsors.

“It’s a great opportunity for our kids to get some real match experience in a familiar environment and so good to see parents spending time with their kids supporting them, and helping umpire,” Lockyer said.

“Everyone has fun on days like this and we want to thank 124 Tambellup Deli and McIntosh and Son who stepped up and sponsored our event.

“Kids sport is so important and without sponsors, it is tricky to make days like this possible and it is just great to have them involved in our community this way.”
