New members hit the court for cardio tennis
WHITSUNDAY Tennis swung into March with cardio tennis attendees well and truly put through their paces last Thursday and Friday.
It was great to welcome new faces Tasman and his son Takiri Hagger to the clan and all members enjoyed a fun but purposeful workout.
Cardio is suitable for all ages and all levels of fitness.
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.
Jenny Southern and Ryan Cheetham played their usual cheeky tennis on Thursday night.
Just Do It junior social tennis was played with gusto.
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.
