Sensational Sydney experience

By Yarrawonga Chronicle

Talented sportsman Liam Williams recently participated in the Evonne Goolagong National Development Camp in Sydney. He was selected to be involved in this prestigious camp after being successful in the selection process in Shepparton. 

Liam regularly plays with both the Yarrawonga Lawn Tennis Club and Tungamah Tennis Club and is known for his agility and determination on the court. The weekend away involved being chaperoned by his coach and being flown to Sydney which was a terrific experience. 

The Evonne Goolagong Foundation that oversaw the camp is responsible for developing talented tennis players between the ages of 12 and 21. One of the aims is to support young Indigenous players who have the potential to play at the elite level and to make a career as either as a player, coach or administrator.

At the camp Liam had a series of intensive sessions on the court as well as mentoring sessions on diet, fitness, resting and schooling. He is hoping to follow this up with being invited to attend a Goolagong National Development Camp which is held at Monash University in Melbourne during the first week of the Australian Open.

Liam always works hard on the practice court. 

He enjoys participation in the local junior squad and challenges himself to continually improve. Over summer he will participate in a range of tournaments in the area and it is assured he will always give his best chasing down every single ball on the quest for victory.
