THE Victoria Domain courts erupted into competitive action on Saturday as 30 teams competed in the traditional Gisborne season-opening Kathleen Henderson Memorial tournament. Teams were divided into four grades: A-grade to D-grade, and were vying for various trophies in honour of former players and officials.

Tairawhiti Maori won the Kathleen Henderson A-grade trophy, with Claydens Waikohu (1) runners-up. The Patsy Burke Memorial Shield B-grade title went to Gisborne Glass Ngatapa (2) from Tatapouri Sportsfit.

The Elizabeth Crawford Memorial Shield C-grade was a tightly-fought grade. Tairawhiti Maori under-15s and Horouta Taimana ended on the same points, five wins and a draw, but Tairawhiti won with a superior goal difference. Hikurangi made it four Dawn Gallagher Shield D-grade section wins in a row.

Claydens Waikohu (2) were runners-up.
