Ju­niors a hit in Sa­rina

Whitsunday Times - - SPORT -

TEN­NIS Whit­sun­day coach Jenny Kirk­man has praised the stu­dents who par­tic­i­pated in the first Ju­nior Devel­op­ment Se­ries (JDS) of the year.

Amy Hunger­ford, Si­enna Mau, Jor­dyn Mau, Rebeka Beveridge and Sam Lane each took to Sa­rina at the week­end for the first JDS round robin event of the year.

“[They] played to the best of their abil­ity and demon­strated great sports­man­ship,” coach Jenny said.

Mean­while, Tues­day evening saw David Nolan and Daniel Scott take on Matthew Cowan and Norm Hold in an en­ter­tain­ing game of dou­bles.

Team­work was a high pri­or­ity for both pairs, while Darcy Larkin and Ray­lene Ras­mussen played out tense ral­lies with Si­enna Mau and Amy Hunger­ford.

Thurs­day night so­cial ten­nis hosted tricky kick serves, with Chris Phillips and Tracy Bland tak­ing on War­ren Har­bot­tle and Elly Watkins.

Fit, Fun Ten­nis – the up­beat gym work­out on a ten­nis court – en­dured hot con­di­tions on Fri­day morn­ing; how­ever it didn’t stop the ladies from run­ning down plenty of re­turns.

Satur­day saw Celia Smith and Pam Pearce in ac­tion while Gra­ham Curtis, John West, Rex Robin­son and Keith Miles hit the court later in the day.

In other news, the coach­ing pupil of the week was Ella Dray.
