PROSER­PINE TEN­NIS

LO­CAL youth hit the courts for a week-long hol­i­day ten­nis camp at the Proser­pine Ten­nis Club last week.

The camp was hosted by lo­cal coach Dom Ko­hen who was as­sisted by up-and-com­ing ju­nior ten­nis stars Mika Stim­son and Sam Cor­nish.

There were many reg­u­lar ten­nis play­ers in at­ten­dance as well as a num­ber of new fac- es try­ing out the sport for the first time at the camp.

The camp pro­vided a range of ac­tiv­i­ties such as ten­nis coach­ing, matches, fun games with prizes, trips to the swim­ming pool to es­cape the heat and even some movies.

The school hol­i­day camp served as the per­fect warm-up for some of the tal­ented play­ers who will be trav­el­ling to com­pete in the Mackay Open Age this Easter-long weekend.

Ju­nior De­vel­op­ment Se­ries (JDS) tour­na­ments will be held at Ka­lynda Chase on April 26-27 and Mackay on May 3-4.

All ten­nis play­ers are re­minded that the weekly ju­nior train­ing ses­sions will re­sume for term 2 at the Proser­pine Ten­nis Club on Mon­day, April 28.

HOL­I­DAY FUN: Holly Rin­gel­stein, Abby Lee, Kim Azul, Rachel Gottschalk, Sam Cor­nish, Fin­ley Cochrane, Tim Gottschalk, An­gus Cochrane, Dane Gottschalk, (back) Cal­lam Ogilvie-Al­cock and coach Dom Ko­hen en­joyed the week-long ten­nis camp held at the Proser­pine Ten­nis Club.
