Get Your Rac­quet On pro­gram a hit

Mansfield Courier - - Tennis -

MANS­FIELD Tennis As­so­ci­a­tion’s in­au­gu­ral ‘Get Your Rac­quet On’ ses­sion had some very enthusiast­ic par­tic­i­pants who de­spite the rather cool and windy con­di­tions laughed their way through the ac­tiv­i­ties.

When fa­cil­i­ta­tors went to run the cool down ac­tiv­ity there was the ques­tion of ‘do we have to stop, this is so much fun?’ – and so the ses­sion con­tin­ued un­der lights.

Once it be­came too cool, ev­ery­one re­tired to the warmth of the club house to en­joy some nib­bles, a hot cuppa courtesy of the club and some so­cial­is­ing.

With pos­i­tive feed-back, MTA is hop­ing that more peo­ple will come along and en­joy the fa­cil­i­ties, meet new peo­ple and most of all have fun.

With a cost of $5 per ses­sion it would have to be one of the cheap­est fun and ex­er­cise pro­grams go­ing around.

Run on Mon­day nights from 7pm the club wel­comes any­one to join in.

All equip­ment is sup­plied, no ex­pe­ri­ence is necessary, and you just need to rock on down with com­fort­able sports shoes and rock on to the mu­sic.

Any enquiries call Deb Mims on 0411 149 085.

Get Your Rac­quet On is a new fun and fit­ness pro­gram based on tennis, but with a dif­fer­ence.

It was launched by Tennis Aus­tralia dur­ing the re­cent Aus­tralian Open, and is de­signed to en­cour­age adult and older teenage play­ers who have pre­vi­ously played tennis to come back in, and to en­cour­age new par­tic­i­pants who may have never picked up a rac­quet be­fore.

Of­fer­ing fun tennis based ac­tiv­i­ties, it re­quires only a small time com­mit­ment, play when you can, all equip­ment sup­plied.

Just bring your run­ners, a hat and com­fort­able cloth­ing.
