Weather clears for tennis match
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.

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
