WHIT­SUN­DAY TEN­NIS

TEN­NIS will re­turn to full speed once school re­sumes next week.

Coach­ing will hit off on Mon­day, July 8 and the ju­nior so­cial af­ter­noon fix­tures re­sume Mon­day, July 15.

All car­dio ses­sions will recom­mence at their usual times – Tues­day at 9am and 6pm, Thurs­day at 6pm and Fri­day at 9am.

Club pres­i­dent Les­ley Nolan said she hoped even more peo­ple would get in­volved with the sport.

“This is a great time of year to start off your ten­nis ex­pe­ri­ence. You don’t need to know how to play, just be able to hold a rac­quet and it is a won­der­ful way to meet peo­ple,” she said.

Those in­volved with car­dio are en­joy­ing the en­tire ex­pe­ri­ence and have been join­ing in with one of the so­cial ten­nis af­ter­noon and evenings.

The ten­nis courts and sur­rounds are look­ing fan­tas­tic with some run­ning re­pairs com­pleted over the school hol­i­days.

Adult so­cial ten­nis has been run­ning at its usual steady rate.

The club thanked Rick Galea who looks af­ter play­ers on Tues­day nights and John West who is the Satur­day af­ter­noon co-or­di­na­tor.

Thurs­day night there­was a very hotly con­tested dou­bles match with an ex­hausted Norm Hold and Ryan Cheetham grab­bing the win.

Thurs­day night is look­ing for a few more faces to swell its ranks.

Coaches Jenny and Jamie Kirk­man have re­turned from an­other suc­cess­ful ten­nis trip to the United States and are as keen as ever to pass on their knowl­edge to their pupils.

The ju­nior de­vel­op­ment se­ries round robin will be held at Proser­pine from July 13-14 and names need to be reg­is­tered with www.ten­nis­north.com.au.au by July 7. For in­for­ma­tion on coach­ing, so­cial ten­nis, car­dio ten­nis or court hire con­tact Jenny Kirk­man on 0418 866 808.

CAR­DIO FUN: Jon Miller, Jay McCredie, Mur­ray Lat­ter, Amanda Stone­man, Kay­ley Jenner and Nick Up­ton at car­dio ten­nis last week.
