    TENNIS NEWS

    Ladies’ Tennis Opening Day was held on Wednesday 28 August from 8.30 am.  It was really pleasing to see a number of new faces playing as well as a few who have committed to attend over the next few weeks.  Mandy Simonetti did a great job in organising the morning including some enticing food in the Tennis Shed. 

    Our coach, Andrew Woodward, also attended and was involved in coaching tips for the ladies including court positioning, volleying and doubles play.  

    Thanks so much Mandy and Andrew.  

    Andrew will be re-commencing the popular Cardio Tennis on Tuesday 3 September and available for group or individual coaching.  Newcomers to cardio tennis will be able to enjoy a free trial session and adult coaching will be $20.00 per session. 

    Great to see such a happy group gathering in such nice weather!
