WHIT­SUN­DAY TEN­NIS

SE­NIOR so­cial ten­nis groups on Tues­day af­ter­noon and evening, Thurs­day evening and Satur­day af­ter­noon were all well at­tended over the last week.

The club was thrilled to see so many peo­ple out play­ing and of­fered a big wel­come to the new faces on Thurs­day evening and a big thank you to Tad Now­icki for look­ing af­ter them. Satur­day af­ter­noon played host to some new­com­ers and made them feel right at home. Men­tion must be made of the sports­man­ship that is part of se­nior so­cial ten­nis and a won­der­ful ex­am­ple to the ju­nior play­ers.

Ju­nior so­cial ten­nis kicked of this week and a few of the young­sters were a bit rusty af­ter their hol­i­day break but were soon back in the swing of things.

Car­dio ten­nis was a lit­tle light on for all ses­sions and new play­ers are en­cour­aged to come on down on ei­ther Tues­day morn­ing or Tues­day evening, Thurs­day evening or Fri­day morn­ing.

It is sim­i­lar to a gym work­out out­side and ten­nis ex­pe­ri­ence is not needed. Coach­ing pupils of the week were Tyler Hu­son, By­ron Ward and Manahi Ball, th­ese three young peo­ple re­ally worked as a team on Fri­day morn­ing.

The club is host­ing a Hal­loween dou­bles round robin on Fri­day, Oc­to­ber 25 at 5.15pm and play­ers can reg­is­ter by call­ing Jenny Kirk­man on 0418 866 808.
