Seventy juniors in Orange were certainly not bored during the first week of the school holidays this week when they participated in our coaching clinic.
Welcomed rain washed out what was to be day one on Monday so the clubs' coaches Alison and Darren made up for it by deciding to not only hold it on the scheduled half day on Tuesday but all day on the Wednesday as well.
The kids, ranging in ages from five up to 17 years old, had a great time as always learning about the game and having plenty of hits with our two coaches and also their assistants.
These very popular Clinics are held every school holidays so parents are reminded to keep an eye on this column for all particulars, in the weeks leading up to the holidays as they fill up very fast.
On Wednesday night this week the Winter Warmers Comp was contested.
Players are loving this competition and we get a good number turning up every week despite the cooler months.
All players are welcome to come along and join in, as it is a turn up whichever night you can basis, therefore you are not committed to attend every week.
Play starts at 6.30pm and concludes around 9.30pm, so it makes for an early night.
The winners this week were Max Powell with three sets/19 games. Second spot was a tie between Rod Buesnel and Nick Powell both landing on one set/13 games and close behind was another tie between Col Parsons and Andy Cannon both on one set/11 games.
Ladies Social is held every Thursday commencing at 9am and they warmly welcome any player who would like to join in with them for a very friendly hit. Same applies for Mixed Social at 1.30pm every Sunday.
This week Janet Davenport is the committee lady on duty to organise the sets for the afternoon and the lucky winner of the free hit voucher last Sunday was Sam Radojicic.
Prior to Mixed Social there will be a committee meeting starting at 12.30pm in the clubhouse.
Anyone committee person who is unable to attend, is to please advise the secretary or another committee member.
Court hire to the public is available by phoning the club on 6362 8020 in advance.
