The final day of junior tennis was one of those perfect summer days at the Wycheproof & District Lawn Tennis Club. Thank you to Rhonda Allan who volunteered her time coaching the ‘Hot Shot Tennis Program’ for the 2016/17 season. She was ably assisted by Mary Anne Pollard and the 15 juniors learned many new skills and all enjoyed their tennis lessons.
Eight juniors participated, playing 2-3 sets for their lessons and important skills learned were how to score and court etiquette. By the end of the 10 weeks we witnessed some great rallies and close sets! Thank you to Bianca Orr who also helped umpire every week.
