Young guns show talent runs in family
Their late grandfather was a WA player and their dad is the captain of their club, so it’s little wonder the Varney brothers love their tennis. “They’re not superstars but they are as keen as and play in a Monday night tennis academy,” dad Andrew says of sons Patrick, 13, and Blake, 15.
Andrew is the captain of the Spalding Park Tennis Club, where the brothers play weekly.
“My Dad, Kingsley, was a threetime winner of the Easter Open in Geraldton and represented WA in the Linton Cup.
“I don’t play as much anymore and I’m not as good as the boys.”
