MORE than 40 ju­niors rang­ing in ages from 5 to 15 years at­tended the three day ten­nis camp held at the Proser­pine ten­nis courts dur­ing the school hol­i­days.

The camp was con­ducted by on-tour ten­nis coaches Bill McDon­ald, Brad Clews and Tay­lor Dou­glas, as well as two trainee coaches, top lo­cal ju­niors, Cather­ine Cas­sells and Sam Cor­nish.

In­ter­est in ju­nior ten­nis has picked up and tour­na­ment re­sults have im­proved for the Proser­pine club. The club is host­ing the next tour­na­ment in the McDon­ald’s ju­nior de­vel­op­ment se­ries this week­end.

They have over 50 com­peti­tors reg­is­tered al­ready and a great turnout is ex­pected this Satur­day and Sun­day at the club.
