The Club Com­mu­nity Play day last Satur­day saw 24 young­sters in attendance.

Club Com­mu­nity Play caters for begin­ners from the ages of four to six.

Un­der the coach­ing of Vince Brani­gan, Henry Nam, Pa­tri­cia Thompson and Amelia Lee, the young play­ers are said to have fun while learn­ing to han­dle rac­quets and equip­ment made ap­pro­pri­ate for their young physiques.

The club said the mod­i­fied ten­nis nets, small rac­quets and lower-pres­sure ten­nis balls made it eas­ier for young­sters to ac­cus­tom them­selves with ten­nis.

They said any young­sters from our dis­trict could come along on Satur­day morn­ings from 9.30 am to 11 am to par­tic­i­pate.
