We had a great response for the Easter Holiday Coaching Clinics.

There was 65 kids each day in the first week and 40 each day in the second,It was fantastic to see.

Our coaches Alison, Darren and Stuart ran the clinics, which included lunch, a jumping castle and plenty of awards.

These clinics are held every school holidays, so keep an eye on this column in the lead up.

Our committee is very keen to start up a junior competition so we’re hosting a sign-on day on Wednesday, April 26 at 4pm, at the clubhouse.

Depending on entries, the competition will then commence on Wednesday, May 3 from 4pm, for eight weeks.

To register your child, or for any enquiries, please phone 6362 8020.

Some of our youngsters have been travelling around the region playing in Junior Development Series (JDS) Tournaments. Among those is Megan Neville, who attended both the Bathurst JDS at the end of March and also the Parkes JDS in April. She said that she played well in both, by making it to the quarter finals, even though she was up against some strong opposition.

Another was Hugh Payne, who is only nine years of age. He played in the Bathurst JDS on a very hot weekend and played up a grade in the under 14s, ‘just for fun’, he said.

He amazingly had one win, along with some other good games. He also played in the Lithgow JDS in the under 14s and had the same results. He said that “he loves to challenge himself”.

We’ve been receiving a pleasing response for our Sunday mixed social and Thursday ladies social days lately, the Autumn weather has helped.

Carl Buchtmann took home the free hit vouchers last week, Brad Penrose is on duty for Sunday’s mixed social this week.

Regular coaching commences next week, public court hire as usual.
