Whitsunday Times - - SPORT -

TEN­NIS: Fit, Fun, Ten­nis – the up­beat car­dio work­out on a ten­nis court was a hot af­fair on Fri­day morn­ing. Liz was the lady on the move. Next week will see the start of a four-week pro­gram Novem­ber 2, 9, 16 and 23. Get in early to regis­ter.

Ear­lier in the week, Tues­day early evening ten­nis was a “hip af­fair” with con­sis­tency a fea­ture of the work­out. Long ral­lies equalled fewer er­rors. Well done to Tracey and Rhi­anna.

Tues­day night so­cial ten­nis fea­tured a gen­tle­men’s dou­bles with Ryan, Norm, Tad and Willem.

Wed­nes­day af­ter­noon the Bronze and Sil­ver squads hit their straps and de­liv­ered an af­ter­noon of hard work.

Do­ing it right in the Bronze squad were the girls Amelia and Zoe and in the Sil­ver squad were Tate and Isaac.

Wed­nes­day morn­ing so­cial ten­nis was slow to start, then found their feet with Ch­eryl and Tad play­ing Gra­ham and Betty.

Thurs­day night so­cial ten­nis wel­comed new­comer An­drew who part­nered with Norm in a fierce dou­bles match against Wil­son and Willem. Mean­time on the other court Tad and Daniel played a hotly con­tested sin­gles match.

Satur­day morn­ing early birds were fly­ing round the court with dra­matic ten­nis. It was one in, one out with girls in at­ten­dance.

Satur­day af­ter­noon ten­nis was played on a hot af­ter­noon.

It was a won­der­ful sight on early Sun­day morn­ing to have the Price fam­ily on court cel­e­brat­ing a fam­ily mem­ber’s birth­day, fol­lowed by break­fast to­gether. Good stuff.

Coach­ing pupils of the week were brother and sis­ter Jake and Sum­mer for work­ing on their fore­hands.
