Fresh faces prove to be tough challenge
THURSDAY night social tennis had an impressive turnout, with five new faces joining in with the regular squad.
Rick Galea, John Lee, Tad Nowicki and Norm Hold got straight down to business in their great set of doubles on court one.
Jenny Southern, Ryan Cheetham, Sandy Mathison and big welcome back to Stacey Wellard put together a colourful game of doubles with lots of laughter on court four.
Keen onlookers were kept busy watching the action from the veranda.
Thursday night cardio members were put through an energetic workout with Jay McCredie, Mark Ericson and Raylene Rasmussen in fine form.
Friday morning cardio had newcomer Dan Toriach join in with the girls.
Natasha Blackburn said no experience was necessary to join in the workout which was a great experience. Junior social tennis packed a punch on Monday afternoon with two newcomers Grace and Josh King joining in with the rest of the bunch.
Playing entertaining tennis on the afternoon were Ollie Whelan, Georgie Usher and Josh Bicanic.
Coaching pupils of the week went to Josh McDougall for his exceptional improvement and Rebeka Beveridge for her caring attitude.
All players wanting to play in the anything goes doubles round robin need to register as soon as possible. The event will start at 5.15pm on Friday, September 6.
