Juniors sparkle in off-season action
The off-season has been huge for our juniors, with Brock Dawson and Ulrich Kriek playing in Darwin, representing Country WA.
Brock is in the US training at the John Newcombe Tennis Academy in Texas and enjoying some tough tennis.
Abbi Gibson had an outstanding winter, claiming more Australian Ranking titles and had the best results of any Australian on her month-long tour through Europe. As this goes to print, Abbi is playing in Sydney after making her first Australian Money Tournament final in Perth earlier this week, losing a tough three-set match.
Our clubs kick off their seasons next week. Denmark Tennis Club’s season opens tomorrow from 1pm. Mt Barker’s season opens on October 12 at 6.30pm. Merrifield Park and Lawley Park’s seasons open on October 13 at 1.15pm and 1.30pm respectively. Kendenup Tennis Club has its opening day, also on October 13, from 2pm.
Merrifield Park will start its new Saturday junior club from October 13 from 10.30am-12.30pm.
All players are welcome — just rock up and play.
Lawley Park Tennis Club will resume its Wednesday junior club in the afternoons from 3.30pm.
Again, all players are welcome to join and play supervised matches.
Next week we will have a list of coaching programs available at various clubs.
