Tennis serves fun
Social tennis was the theme for last week, with plenty of action seen on the Whitsunday courts.
Tuesday afternoon was the first to hit off, with some tantalising rallies and great sportsmanship. The ladies led the way with Kay Hoar, Merle Foot, Betty Wilson and Rae Miller all out on court.
Tuesday night saw Yoko Stimson and Daniel Scott team together to play an incredible tough set of doubles against their opponents. Daniel sent down cracker serves while Yoko was lethal on the net.
On Thursday night the husband and wife pair Tad and Anna Nowicki made the most of the steamy evening with their own brand of hot and steamy tennis.
Saturday afternoon social tennis had two courts of fine doubles entertainment. John and Cheryl West threw down the gauntlet and played some tight games of tennis. Meanwhile, Keith Miles, Norm Hold and Rex Robinson were in their element assisting their partners and chasing down ball after ball.
On the court front, Jenny Kirkman of Tennis Whitsunday said it was pleasing to see work had started on replacing the injured light.
She also said The Australian Open was now in progress, and easily accessible to view on television, suggesting it would be fun to select one player and follow their progress through the tournament.
Tennis coaching resumes on Monday, January 25, and the Just Do It Junior Social tennis begins on Saturday, January 30.
