SpongeBob to help chil­dren make a racket

Mt Druitt - St Mary's Standard (East) - - NEWS -

IF YOU like a dash of SpongeBob with your back­hand, head to the Kids Ten­nis Day at the Apia In­ter­na­tional Sydney next month.

Pre­sented by Nick­elodeon, Kids Ten­nis Day on Jan­uary 10 is a fun-filled event that gives fam­i­lies a chance to share in the ex­cite- ment of the Apia In­ter­na­tional Sydney ten­nis tour­na­ment and to give ten­nis a try.

The tour­na­ment is at Sydney Olympic Park Ten­nis Cen­tre from Jan­uary 11 to 17.

The APIA In­ter­na­tional Kids Day runs from 9am and of­fers chil­dren the op­por­tu­nity to give ten­nis a try in a fun en­vi­ron­ment with mod­i­fied courts, mod­i­fied rac­quets and mod­i­fied balls.

There will be celebrity ten­nis matches and the chance to ex­pe­ri­ence ten­nis with ANZ Ten­nis Hot Shots.

The Lawn, a new fea­ture of the tour­na­ment, will be filled with ac­tiv­i­ties and games from Sydney sport­ing clubs, as well as Hit the Tar­get and Speed Serve.

Nick­elodeon favourites will be there, in­clud­ing Teenage Mu­tant Ninja Tur­tles, SpongeBob SquarePants and Dora the Ex­plorer.

The best part about the day is that it is free for chil­dren un­der 16 when ac­com­pa­nied by a pay­ing adult.

Tick­ets for the day start at $15 and can be bought at the door or through Tick­etek.

De­tails and tick­ets are at api­ain­ter­na­tional.com.au and tick­etek.com.au.
