Wild, windy ten­nis

Whitsunday Times - - SPORT -


BLUS­TERY con­di­tions didn’t stop the Can­non­vale Courts from host­ing a busy week of ten­nis ac­tion.

Tr­ish Rouse re­turned to duty on Tues­day while Satur­day saw long ral­lies be­tween Rae Miller, Merle Foot, Kay Hoare and Larry Mad­di­gan.

Tues­day night so­cial ten­nis saw Rick Galea re­turn to the courts, mix­ing in with Keith Miles, Matthew New­ton and Dar­ren Rusk for an en­ter­tain­ing round of dou­bles.

Thurs­day night saw Norm Hold and Daniel Scott take cen­tre court in what was an amaz­ing match of dou­bles – a treat for spec­ta­tors.

Wed­nes­day af­ter­noon had all four courts in ac­tion.

The match of the af­ter­noon saw Re­beka Beveridge and Daniel Cullen take on Matthew Hen­ning and Sam Din­nie.

It was a serve and vol­ley af­fair, with Cullen reel­ing off vi­cious shots in tan­dem with Beveridge’s stel­lar serv­ing game.

Fit, Fun Ten­nis – the up­beat car­dio work­out on a ten­nis court – was a steady af­fair on Thurs­day night.

Fri­day saw Leigh Kane as the only male on court, in what was a fierce work­out.

The coach­ing pupil of the week was Isaac Ben­son for his fab­u­lous fore­hands.

Chil­dren from the Whit­sun­day PCYC also stopped by last week, en­joy­ing a fun day of ten­nis.

Last Tues­day saw stu­dents test their hand­eye co-or­di­na­tion in a ten­nis en­vi­ron­ment.
