On-court ac­tion hots up

Kyabram Free Press - - SPORT -

IT’S been a busy few weeks for the Kyabram Lawn Ten­nis Club.

And it’s look­ing an ex­cit­ing few months ahead.

Af­ter six years at the club, Melissa Clark has taken over from club stal­wart Barry Mor­ris as president, while Bon Mor­ris and Melissa Porch have stepped in as the new sec­re­taries.

Plus the Hot Shots ten­nis pro­gram, ladies mid­week ten­nis, Satur­day ju­nior and se­nior comps and Twi­light Ten­nis are all around the cor­ner.

And the club will be host­ing a reg­is­tra­tion day on Fri­day at the club so you can book your spot.

With a bar­be­cue, a serve speed gun and pris­tine courts free to the pub­lic, the day will give bud­ding Roger Fed­er­ers of all ages a chance to have a hit.

“You can come and reg­is­ter for the up­com­ing sea­son or to be­come a friend of the club and sup­port events and up­grades and stay up-to-date on what we’re up to,” Ms Clark said.

“Or you can just come and not sign up to any­thing. It’ll just be a re­ally re­laxed so­cial gath­er­ing be­fore the sea­son starts.”

Ms Clark said she was ex­cited to step up as president.

“I have big shoes to fill, but I’m re­ally ex­cited to see what the fu­ture holds for the club. I’d like to use tech­nol­ogy to our ad­van­tage and up­date our web­site and Face­book to im­prove com­mu­ni­ca­tion,” she said.

“I’d also like to ... in­tro­duce a mums and bubs group or more so­cial ten­nis op­tions.”

The free ten­nis and reg­is­tra­tion day will be held at the courts on Fri­day, Septem­ber 15 from 4pm to 6pm.
