Workout on the tennis court
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.
