Juniors put on a tennis show
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.
