Rainfall did not dampen tennis
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.
