Rain­fall did not dampen ten­nis

Whitsunday Times - - SPORT -

TEN­NIS: Early evening so­cial ten­nis was a cracker this week, num­bers were well down, but that did not stop Amy and Tracey from giv­ing Max and brother Isaac a run for their money.

The girls came up trumps win­ning more sets than the boys.

It was a hoot. Tues­day night so­cial ten­nis then took to the courts with Anna and Tad play­ing Willem and Wil­son.

This was a match filled with ral­lies, ral­lies and more ral­lies.

Wednes­day evening the Bronze and Sil­ver squads joined to­gether for some Christ­mas fun, un­for­tu­nately the heav­ens opened leav­ing the courts sat­u­rated.

This did not stop the two squads from do­ing plenty of ten­nis ac­tiv­i­ties.

Tate from the Sil­ver squad and Spencer from the Bronze squad worked well to­gether.

Wednes­day morn­ing and Thurs­day evening so­cial ten­nis were vic­tims of the wet weather and didn't make it on court.

Fri­day morn­ing Brekky group and Fri­day arvo squad en­joyed the sunny weather and played fun games out on court.

Lose a rac­quet was a favourite with both groups.

In the Fri­day morn­ing squad it was Amelia, Emelia and Jas­mine and in the af­ter­noon squad Floyd, Max and An­gus chas­ing balls madly.

This was the last week of coach­ing for the term and all pupils had fun play­ing with the mov­ing net.

Amy Hunger­ford was the top scorer out of all the pupils.

Satur­day af­ter­noon so­cial ten­nis was very well at­tended and squeezed in games be­tween the show­ers of rain.

Ex­cept for the fol­low­ing dates, so­cial ten­nis will be on Wednes­day morn­ing and Satur­day af­ter­noon and Tues­day and Thurs­day night.

The only ex­cep­tion to this is: there will be NO SO­CIAL TEN­NIS on Tues­day, De­cem­ber 24, Christ­mas Day, Thurs­day De­cem­ber 26, Satur­day, De­cem­ber 29 and New Year’s Day.

Ten­nis coach­ing and court hire is avail­able all school hol­i­days.

Coach­ing pupil of the week goes to Wil­liam and mum Jenny Smith, for do­ing their les­son to­gether - even the warm up!!

To all our mem­bers and coach­ing pupils our very best wishes for Christ­mas and the New Year.

For in­for­ma­tion on so­cial ten­nis, court hire and coach­ing over De­cem­ber, 2018 and Jan­uary, 2019 please con­tact Jenny Kirk­man at Ten­nis Whit­sun­day on 0418 866 808.
