Mike Corren & Joannah Yue-Hitch Take Out WA Open Titles

The 2017 WA Open Championships was held on 26-28 May at The Club Perth.

Congratulations to Mike Corren & Joannah Yue-Hitch who took out the Mens & Ladies Open Titles respectively.

It was the 6th WA Open Mens title for the ageless Mike Corren who defeated David Ilich in the final. Mike is originally from South Australia but is currently based in Western Australia. His previous wins were in 2006, 2010, 2011, 2012 and 2013.  His haul of six WA Open Mens titles draws him level with Christine Van Nierop who won six consecutive WA Open Ladies titles from 1973 to 1978. Mike and Christine also share the honour of having the second most wins in their respective events behind Dean Williams who holds nine Mens titles, and Sue Hillier (nee Carter) who holds seven Ladies titles.

Joannah Yue-Hitch from Singapore denied Sue Hillier the opportunity to add to her wins when she proved to be too strong in the final of the Ladies event.
