Junior Tennis
The second week of junior tennis was played in slightly blustery conditions.
Courts were at near capacity again with the Saturday morning program booming.
The red and orange ball hot shots program continued with coach Brady Pritchard and apprentice Thomas Loughnan teaching the fundamentals of the forehand technique.
The kids enjoyed lots of minor games with parents assisting making the morning even more enjoyable.
The three coaching groups are now full with club coach Greg Duns and his assistant Eliza York focusing on the developing match play.
Greg has already earmarked several players to potentially start playing matches within the next few weeks.
The matches group had 44 kids participating and all matches were played in great spirit.
The winners of each group were; Group 1 Liam Williams 16 Hamish Ingram 16 Sam Davidson 16, Group 2 Jessica Linehan 18, Daniel Herrod 17 Group 3 Charlotte White 18 Mia Kennedy 18, Group 4 Bella Bridgeman, Ella Rhodes 18, Group 5 Jess Mansfield 18, Lochie Conway 18 Group 6 Isobel Nagle, Anna Zanin 18.
There are still one or two vacancies for all groups of the Saturday morning programs and queries about registering can be made to Jason Bassett on 0448 838 256.
Also a reminder that the Sportspower Tournament Series starts in Albury on Sunday, November 5.
