Coach Stuart Thompson’s clinic was held on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday this week, with around 55 juniors attending every day from 9am to 3pm.
Kids as young as four up to 17 years really enjoyed the tennis over the three days, along with the pizza and barbecue lunches every day.
On Wednesday they were lucky to get the day through, in between the storms but with the aid of our super soaker roller we managed to get the water off the courts in no time after each downpour.
On the last day, there was a mini-tournament held, after which Stuart presented prizes to the winners as well as encouragement prizes.
Overall, both Clinics during the holidays were extremely well attended with around 120 juniors registering and it was just wonderful to see the kids filling up all the courts.
These clinics are held every school holidays so parents please keep this in mind for the next one.
During the holidays and all year, our complex is open for court hire to the public with very reasonable rates.
All you have to do is phone clubhouse on 6362 8020 in advance to book a court.
Next week will be back to normal for private coaching with Darren and Alison each afternoon, as well as the Hot Shot classes every Friday from 3.30 to 5.30pm, which is an ideal way to introduce the young ones to tennis.
For all enquiries regarding Hot Shot lessons, please phone clubhouse.
The Turn Up Tuesday Junior Comp will also resume next week at the new time from 5-6.30pm. All newcomers welcome.
On Wednesday night we had enough players to fill two courts, who braved the stormy and windy conditions.
The ladies’ winner was Elizabeth Grady on 11 games and the men’s winner was Andy Cannon on 18 games.
This Sunday there will a committee meeting in the clubhouse at 12.15pm. Any committee person who cannot attend please give your apology to the secretary or another committee person.
