Numbers growing at social tennis
THERE was a great turnout of players for social tennis at the Cannonvale courts on Saturday afternoon.
After the week of wet weather they came out of the wood work with racquets in hand.
All courts were in action with ladies, men’s and mixed doubles.
The match of the day was the men’s doubles featuring Tasman Hagger, Col Hogan, Keith Miles and Norm Hold.
They were scampering all over the court with some fantastic overheads and well placed tactical tennis.
Social tennis on Tuesday and Thursday was a wash out as was cardio tennis.
Cardio tennis will make its return tonight at 6pm, and again on tomorrow morning at 9am.
Coaching pupils of the week were the Tuesday afternoon super group who train at the Proserpine State School courts.
Jenny Kirkman from Tennis Whitsunday said the young players had put in a huge effort and were working on improving all aspects of their game.
“It was a disappointing result for the Australian Davis Cup team going down to France,” she said.
“The action took place on clay courts. There were some amazing rallies and the doubles was extremely entertaining with superb quick hands at the net.”
A reminder that tennis memberships are now due and payable.

YOUNG GUNS: Proserpine State High School students Darcy Larkin and Rebeka Beveridge from the super group squad were awarded the pupils of the week at their traning session in Cannonvale last Wednesday.
