Salient.The Newspaper of Victoria University College. Vol. 19, No. 4. April 6, 1955



We have a strong team this year and are confident that our representatives will acquit themselves well. The men's team will probably comprise last year's, and Betty Nelson will be a great strengthening influence in the women's team.

Barry Boon, last year's runner-up and an NZU Blue, has this season won the men's singles and doubles titles in the Wellington championships, the Taranaki singles and doubles and the Wanganui singles, and must be given a great chance of winning. Larry O'Neill will be a strong second string in the singles, where his big service will be a dominating factor.

Tom Eichelbaum is at the top of his form after several tournament successes over Christmas; he has partnered Boon for several seasons, and these two should win the doubles. The fourth man, Alan Robinson, is an experienced player, completing a well-balanced team.

Betty Nelson is a Nunnelly Casket representative, and has defeated N.Z. representative Pat Nettleton. Val Henderson, June Lee and Barbara Little are all good enough to cause an upset.

We have the talent to go a long way in this tournament, and with a little luck there Is no reason why we should not win.
