PROSER­PINE TEN­NIS

TEN­NIS play­ers of all ages took to the Proser­pine ten­nis courts on Satur­day for the club’s 2014 open day.

The open day was a chance for new and re­turn­ing play­ers to meet with fel­low play­ers and the club’s new coach Dominic Ko­hen.

Ko­hen and se­nior play­ers from the club helped run a num­ber of ten­nis games for ju­nior play­ers, who all had a great time run­ning around and meet­ing new peo­ple.

Club of­fi­cials were happy with the turnout but said it would be great to see ju­nior and se­nior num­bers in­crease as the sea­son goes on.

There was a bar­be­cue to fin­ish off the day and some lucky play­ers took home ten­nis prizes in­clud­ing rac­quets and other gear to get them ready for the sea­son.

The Proser­pine Ten­nis Club of­fers ju­nior fixtures on Mon­day af­ter­noons from 3.305.30pm as well as pri­vate coach­ing, car­dio ten­nis and se­nior fixtures.

For more in­for­ma­tion con­tact head coach Dominic Ko­hen on 0422 262 581 or via email at bar­ri­er­reeften­nis@out­look.com, or call the club on 4945 3535.

GROUP FUN: Kate Blain, Emily Hin­schen and Josie Bates learnt some new skills at the Proser­pine Ten­nis open day on Satur­day morn­ing.

QUICK FOOT­WORK: Seth Trinder helped to train new ju­nior play­ers on the mini courts dur­ing the Proser­pine Ten­nis open day on Satur­day.
