Fresh faces prove to be tough chal­lenge

Whitsunday Times - - SPORT -

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.

GREAT HELP: Les­lie Nolan vol­un­teers her time and coach­ing skills at the Whit­sun­day Ten­nis Club.
