Num­bers grow­ing at so­cial ten­nis

Whitsunday Times - - SPORT -


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.
