Kids han­dle the heat

Southern Gazette (South Perth) - - SPORT -

BEAU­TI­FUL ten­nis was played at the South Perth Lawn Ten­nis Club’s Ju­nior Open Tour­na­ment.

More than 100 of WA’s best ju­nior ten­nis play­ers took to the court on Jan­uary 9-11, with tro­phies handed out to the best.

Tour­na­ment di­rec­tor Lor­raine Chyne said the com­pe­ti­tion went well and the feed­back she had re­ceived was pos­i­tive.

“I had peo­ple com­ing up to me say­ing that they will come back next year be­cause they en­joyed it so much,” she said.

“The weather was 35C each day, so there were some play­ers strug­gling at times but most of them coped okay.

“Most of the kids take part in mul­ti­ple tour­na­ments each year, so the tal­ent on dis­play was great.”
