Ju­niors put on a ten­nis show

Whitsunday Times - - SPORT -

THE Can­non­vale Courts were in­un­dated with play­ers for last week’s Just Do It Ju­nior So­cial ten­nis fix­ture.

There were a few rusty ral­lies on Mon­day but as the af­ter­noon pro­gressed, the stan­dard im­proved.

Brothers Rob­bie and Max Vrind and sib­lings Tay­lor and Jor­dan Ban­nis­ter were just a few of the young­sters on show. Tues­day and Satur­day af­ter­noon so­cial ten­nis was a cheer­ful event.

Both af­ter­noons had strong support and a good num­ber of play­ers on show.

Tues­day af­ter­noon had Rae Miller, Merle Foot, Betty Wilson and Kay Hoare in a match of dou­bles while Satur­day saw the likes of Ian Eldridge, John West, Larry Madi­gan and Rex Robin­son hit the courts.

Tues­day night so­cial ten­nis was low on num­bers last week, but that didn’t stop Keith Miles, Tad Now­icki, Thomas Koeck and Norm Hold from a hotly contest dou- bles en­counter. Thurs­day night it was young guns Matt New­ton and Daniel Scott who played a top game of sin­gles.

The sets were close which made for an en­ter­tain­ing game.

Fit, Fun Ten­nis – the up­beat car­dio work­out on a ten­nis court – was a fam­ily af­fair on Thurs­day night, with the Ni­chol­sons tak­ing part.

Fri­day morn­ing the ladies and Aaron Black­burn were put through their paces in a high-qual­ity work­out.

On Fri­day af­ter­noon the Can­non­vale English Col­lege hired court two for the af­ter­noon, mak­ing for a fun af­ter­noon in a dif­fer­ent en­vi­ron­ment. The coach­ing pupil of the week was Will Smith for mov­ing his feet with­out be­ing told. The club would also like to con­grat­u­late Amy Hunger­ford, Re­beka Beveridge and Emma Bradtke who trav­elled to Townsville at the week­end.
