Fam­ily ten­nis go­ing strong

Whitsunday Times - - SPORT -


FRI­DAY saw ev­ery­one on the court en­joy­ing a game of ten­nis, when 22 pairs played in the any­thing-goes round robin.

Di­vi­sion 1 win­ners were Ge­off Price and Matthew Hen­ning. The brother team Daniel and Nick Cullen won Di­vi­sion 2 and in Di­vi­sion 3, the dad and son com­bi­na­tion of Scott and Darcy Milne won the evening.

It was six-year-old Darcy’s first com­pet­i­tive match, so it was very ex­cit­ing for the fam­ily and Darcy was very proud.

For the first time, some ten­nis mums, Cath Mau and Fiona Bev­eridge de­cided it was there turn to take to the courts, rather than sit and watch their daugh­ters play. This was their first time as part­ners and play­ers and they were a fear­less com­bi­na­tion.

There was a fan­tas­tic turnout for Mon­day ju­nior af­ter­noon ten­nis. Brother and sis­ter team, Ko­han and Jor­dyn Mau played well as did Cait­lyn and Hay­den Lin­sey-Wil­mott and Grace and Josh King.

All ses­sions of car­dio ten­nis through­out the week were well at­tended.

Aaron Black­burn showed some skill on Tues­day morn­ing and Jon Miller per­formed well later that day.

Tues­day and Satur­day af­ter­noon play­ers were put to the test with strong wind gusts play­ing havoc with ball place­ment, al­though this didn’t stop Kay Hoare, Rae Miller, Betty Wil­son, Merle Foot or Tr­ish Rouse from hit­ting the court.

Good luck to Amy Hunger­ford, Si­enna Mau, Rebecca Beve- ridge, Emma Bradtke and Trent Mur­ray who are play­ing in the A fi­nals of the round robin se­ries in Townsville.

Coach­ing pupil of the week was Jor­dan Ban­nis­ter who loves to play ten­nis. A re­minder that Whit­sun­day Ten­nis’ Fit Fun Ten­nis Camp in the Sun is on in the first week of the hol­i­days, in­clud­ing the morn­ings the of the 23, 24 and 25 Septem­ber.
