Ten­nis serves fun

Whitsunday Times - - SPORT -

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.

If you are in­ter­ested in coach­ing, court hire or so­cial ten­nis, con­tact Jenny Kirk­man on 0418 866 808.
