Get Your Racquet On program a hit
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.
