Ten­nis stars bat­tle against wet weather

Whitsunday Times - - SPORT -


SO­CIAL ten­nis and car­dio ten­nis were bat­tered by the weather con­di­tions this week.

Tues­day evening and Satur­day af­ter­noon so­cial groups were the only ones to make it out on court for some ex­hil­a­rat­ing ten­nis.

Tues­day evening saw a fan­tas­tic hour of sin­gles be­tween the boys with all courts in ac­tion.

This was fol­lowed by some great dou­bles matches.

Those out play­ing the game and chas­ing down the ball were Darcy Larkin, Daniel Scott, Isi­tolo Maka and Norm Hold to name a few.

Satur­day af­ter­noon was light on num­bers but not on ac­tion as this group didn’t miss a bounce.

Lo­cal ten­nis en­thu­si­asts who feel the urge to have a hit are en­cour­aged to come along and join one of the wel­com­ing groups.

The Wed­nes­day War­rior Squad had Sam Collinson, Cameron Rogers and Nick Cullen giv­ing the older boys a run for their rac­quets on Wed­nes­day evening.

Con­grat­u­la­tions to James Nolan and Daniel Cullen for a su­perb work ethic on the night.

Si­enna and Jor­dyn Mau, Amy Hunger­ford, Re­beka Bev­eridge, Matthew Hen­ning and Trent Mur­ray were in Home Hill for the A Se­ries Ju­nior De­vel­op­ment Tour­na­ment on the weekend.

They all showed con­sis­tent ef­fort in their re­spec­tive sin­gles matches.

Coach­ing pupil of the week was new­comer Isaac Benson for his im­prove­ment in ball and lis­ten­ing skills.

Ju­nior ten­nis train­ing morn­ings will be held dur­ing the school hol­i­days on Mon­day, April 7and Tues­day, April 8 from 8-11am.
