Courts buzzing in Whit­sun­days

Whitsunday Times - - SPORT -


TEN­NIS con­tin­ues to power on in the Whit­sun­days, with block­buster ac­tion hit­ting the courts this week.

Sun­day saw a fa­ther and son work­out be­tween Dar­ren and Cameron Rusk be­fore Mon­day’s Just Do It Ju­nior so­cial ten­nis crew scur­ried around the courts.

Eran Kirk­patrick, Tay­lor and Jor­dan Ban­nis­ter and Scott and Mark Ni­chol­son were the stars on the day.

Tues­day af­ter­noon so­cial ten­nis proved a pleas­ant af­fair, with Rex Robin­son and Ian Eldridge join­ing John West to strengthen the men’s num­bers.

This didn’t stop the ladies from dom­i­nat­ing, well and truly keep­ing the boys in check. Tues­day evening saw the elite squad put to the test with an hour of heavy hit­ting.

Keith Miles, Dar­ren Rusk, Matthew New­ton and Rick Galea pro­duced an en­thralling dou­bles match af­ter­wards.

Fit, Fun Ten­nis – the up­beat car­dio work­out on a ten­nis court – was well at­tended on Thurs­day night, while Tash and Aaron Black­burn re­turned to ac­tion in stun­ning fashion on Fri­day morn­ing.

The coach­ing pupils of the week were Emma Din­nie, for an amaz­ing work­out which il­lus­trated fore­hands and back­hands, and Richard Weaver for a strong ser­vice ac­tion.
