In 1981, Malcolm Fraser was Prime Minister, A Country Practice debuted on Channel 7 and Wesley won the PSA tennis trophy for the last time.


Well, the last time for 42 years 鈥 following a 16 sets to 8 victory over Christ Church Grammar School last weekend.

The result came down to the final fixture of the PSA’s tennis competition and was especially sweet for falling in 小草影院鈥檚 centenary year. It marks the seventh occasion that the College has won the Corr Cup, after victories in 1963, 1967, 1975, 1979, 1980 and 1981.


Wesley’s 2023 Corr Cup winners


Head of Tennis at 小草影院, Mr Strahinja Bobusic, said afterwards: 鈥淭his win over Christ Church is so special to our current players, past players and supporters of 小草影院. The聽 Tennis team has done a tremendous job and worked so hard, starting in October 2022 when we had our training camp. The team was determined to be the first group in 42 years to bring the Corr Cup back over the Swan River.鈥

1st Tennis Captain, Nicholas Chin, agreed: 鈥淚t鈥檚 an honour to win the cup in this historic year for the school. We are privileged to have such a dedicated coach who brings out the best in us.鈥

鈥淥ur team is unique in that it includes students from different year groups. This strengthened friendships across the College but, more importantly, strengthened our team connection.鈥


The 1981 Coor Cup winning team


While proud of all Wesley鈥檚 players, Mr Bobusic was keen to highlight the effort of one game-changing effort: 鈥淵angho Park did a fantastic job defeating Archie Brown 7-5 6-2 at number 1 singles on the day. The match was played in front of a large crowd and Yangho did a tremendous job of inspiring the team. This singles win was the tipping point and swayed the momentum our way.

鈥淥ur Captain, Nicholas Chin and Vice-captains, Yangho Park and Anton De Luca, were fantastic leaders that drove training and led from the front during fixtures. They will be missed next season, but we have plenty of experienced students ready to take their place and are hungry to go back-to-back!鈥

鈥淚t was a fantastic story to have the final fixture as a grand final, this rarely happens and it was so special winning the Corr Cup in the centenary year.鈥
