Fam­i­lies en­joy ten­nis

Euroa Gazette - - SPORTS -

IT was a very pleas­ant at­mos­phere at the Euroa Lawn Ten­nis Courts last Fri­day evening.

Over 40 ju­nior ten­nis play­ers and par­ents en­joyed play­ing along­side each other.

Some par­ents were amazed at the im­proved skill lev­els of their chil­dren and had to step up their game to match the com­pet­i­tive chal­lenges pre­sented to them.

There were some rusty shots wit­nessed and a few reports of sore mus­cles over the week­end but it was a pop­u­lar event, so the club will be hold­ing another fam­ily evening in the fu­ture at a date to be con­firmed.

The ten­nis ball ma­chine tested the skills of the young play­ers and pro­vided chal­lenges and great entertainment through­out the evening.

A well-pre­pared bar­beque was thor­oughly en­joyed by ev­ery­one at the con­clu­sion of play, with a spe­cial thank you to the bar­beque chefs.

Although the weather con­di­tions were a lit­tle breezy on Fri­day, the Euroa Lawn courts pro­vided the per­fect set­ting for an en­joy­able fam­ily gather­ing.
