WHIT­SUN­DAY TEN­NIS

SATUR­DAY af­ter­noon saw the so­cial ten­nis play­ers swing­ing their rac­quets while the Cannonvale school fete was in full swing on the other side of the fence.

The mu­sic from tal­ented ju­niors at the school cre­ated a great at­mos­phere and the so­cial play­ers played some great ten­nis.

Some of the reg­u­lars play­ers en­joy­ing the mu­sic were Rae­lene Miller, Betty Wil­son, Chris and Ian French, Rex Robin­son, Gra­ham Cur­tis and Joanne Wright.

A big thank you to Cannonvale State School, prin­ci­pal Angie Kelly and P&C mem­bers for al­low­ing the ten­nis club to set up a ta­ble to sell raf­fle tick­ets. A num­ber of tick­ets were sold but we en­cour­age club mem­bers to buy more tick­ets as all money raised will be used for the im­prove­ment and run­ning costs of our club.

Mon­day ju­nior com­mu­nity ten­nis had all play­ers in full flight, run­ning down balls that were hit by their op­po­nents.

Ylana Nur­flus and Ko­han Mau were two of the ju­niors on the mini­courts chas­ing balls. Mean­while on the full size court Sage Smith, Joshua Bi­canic and broth­ers Christopher and Jack Rai­teri had their feet scam­per­ing.

Tues­day morn­ing car­dio was light on with par­tic­i­pants, so all girls hit the courts run­ning as it’s their spe­cial day. This may have been due to the wet weather, with the courts soaked.

Tues­day evening so­cial ten­nis saw three hardy gen­tle­man have a hit.

Last Thurs­day’s car­dio at 6pm, fol­lowed by so­cial ten­nis at 7pm, were both well at­tended. Rae­lene Ras­mussen and Mark Eric­s­son kept up the pace

Coach­ing pupil of the week went to Molly O’Con­nor, who put in a mon­strous ef­fort in her fore­hands on Thurs­day af­ter­noon.

There is a dou­bles round robin at Cannonvale school courts on Fri­day, Au­gust 9, start­ing from 5.15pm.

All com­bi­na­tions of teams are wel­come and regis­tra­tion must be in by Au­gust 7. For more in­for­ma­tion or to reg­is­ter ring 0418 866 808.
