Winter can’t stop our Cannons from firing
SWIMMING: Despite the cooler weather, Cannonvale Cannons swimmers continue to keep up their swim fitness and improve their technique.
Recently, a number of club swimmers were presented with squad upgrade certificates.
In four weeks there will a swim carnival in Townsville and in eight weeks the State Short Course Championships will be held in Brisbane and some club swimmers are training hard to qualify and compete in these events.
The Cannonvale Cannons Swim Club will also be hosting its AGM on Saturday, June 24 at 6pm at the Reef Gateway Hotel and all members are welcome. NUMBERS were down last week for Airlie Beach Bridge Club with a few players away.
In their Monday afternoon session, Linda Priday and Joy Ellis defeated Gillian Blackie and Dewie Hughes by three rubbers to two in a closely fought match.
In their Thursday evening round, Linda Priday and Neil Cawthorne won from Gillian Blackie and Dewie Hughes, with Trish Rouse and Joy Ellis coming third.
Club member Cawthorne said they were looking for new players.
“Visitors and resident social players are very welcome to our Monday afternoon from 12.30pm and Thursday evening sessions from 6.30pm at the Whitsunday Neighbourhood Centre,” he said.
For more information contact Linda Priday on 0432 777 571. TENNIS: THE Whitsundays held its own “French Open Tournaments” this week.
The French flag was flying and specially prepared tennis balls got the “clay effect” with players competing in three round robin doubles events.
Winners on Wednesday in the Bronze squad were Jett Bleines and Kody Collins, Silver squad Tate Butler and Max Porter.
Tuesday and Thursday’s afternoon and evening social tennis was another hit as was Saturday afternoon. The club also holds Friday morning’s Fit, fun tennis and Saturday’s early bird ladies.
The club wishes to thank Reece, Isaac, Max, Jake, Sienna and Jessica for giving their time to mentor and assist young people to improve their tennis as well as Mia who assists off the court on to have everyone ready for their lesson.
