Club pres­i­dent Les­ley Nolan said car­dio ten­nis was a re­ward­ing ex­pe­ri­ence both phys­i­cally and so­cially.

“It is what you make it. You don’t even have to be a ten­nis player, just will­ing to give it a good Aussie go,” she said.

Tues­day and Satur­day so­cial ten­nis was played with its usual ca­ma­raderie and think­ing ten­nis.

Its coun­ter­part on Tues­day and Thurs­day evening ex­pe­ri­enced an in­flux of play­ers mak­ing for some in­ter­est­ing ten­nis.

Well done to Re­beka Bev­eridge and Si­enna Mau for mak­ing it through a tough set of dou­bles against the boys.

On the mini courts it was Jor­dyn Mau and Tay­lor Ban­nis­ter giv­ing the boys some se­ri­ously tough com­pe­ti­tion.

Con­grat­u­la­tions to Just Do It ju­nior so­cial mem­bers Cameron Rogers and Cameron Rusk for mak­ing the in­ter- school ten­nis team.
