Right serve of Fast4 ten­nis

Narrogin Observer - - News - Michael Traill

The Nar­ro­gin Ten­nis Club is mak­ing all the right shots with their new 3-a-side Fast4 Ten­nis com­pe­ti­tion on Tues­day nights.

In an ef­fort to draw more play­ers to the club or­gan­iser Jor­dan Heil started the 3-a-side so­cial com­pe­ti­tion, which has plenty of prizes on of­fer, last week.

“Fast4 Ten­nis is just a dif­fer­ent brand of ten­nis, ba­si­cally you’re play­ing the same game but the scor­ing is dif­fer­ent,” Heil said.

“Your sets will end quicker, your games will end quicker and you’ll have more pres­sure shots.

“For ex­am­ple in nor­mal ten­nis a let will get you your serve back, in this it will be play-on, it could be an ace if it drops short. And you only play the four points.”

While Nar­ro­gin Ten­nis Club has of­fered Fast4 Ten­nis for some time, the 3-a-side com­pe­ti­tion is get­ting new par­tic­i­pants to pick up a rac­quet.

“From 7 o’clock on­wards you’ll get in a team of three and play two sets of dou­bles and one set of sin­gles,” Heil said.

“Teams change each week, who­ever comes down, will get put into a new team and go again.

“Ten­nis is the sort of game you can play from when you’re two un­til you’re 80.

“The big­gest crowd I’ve had so far — 20 peo­ple have come down tonight and around 80 per cent are not mem­bers of the club.”

The in­tro­duc­tion of a new 3-a-side Fast4 com­pe­ti­tion is a win­ner at the Nar­ro­gin Ten­nis Club with more than 20 play­ers tak­ing to the court last week.
