WA took out its first ever 35 & Over Men’s division title, defeating Victoria Blue 52 – 24.

The WA 50 & Over Men’s team also brought home the champions trophy after a dominating 119 – 56 Final win over North Queensland.

Peter Lewis said he felt very humbled to be named Player of the Match in the 35 & Over Men’s Final.

“To be named player of the final was a surprise as our team performance was so strong that and any of the 8 players on the court could have won it. I was just so happy to get the win,” Lewis said.

“I’m really proud of our team. Some members of this group has been part of success in men’s tournaments before but to be the first group to win it from WA in the 35’s age group is something we will all cherish.

“It was a huge contribution from all 11 players, our coach and trainers so from that point of view it was very satisfying!”

Lewis said he is very excited to be selected to represent Australia in the 35 & Over Men’s division at the Masters World Series in South Africa later this year.

“It’s really humbling and exciting to represent Australia in South Africa,” he said.

“Australia has such a great record in the International series so there will be pressure to continue that in what will be a very good competition. I’m beyond excited to be a part of that.”

Nine other Western Australian players, along with WA coach Wayne Fontana and Team Managers Mark Hullett, David McKay and Chris Barnes will also represent Australia at the World Series.
