FIFTY budding young stars have shown their potential at a tennis camp in Scone.
Dean Trembath’s camp, which was hosted by the Scone Hardcourt Tennis Association, involved morning and afternoon sessions in a bid to improve the children’s skills.
Coach Trembath uses six courts and five coaching assistants to coach the children from Monday to Thursdays.
The next camp is scheduled for the second week of the July holidays (11 July) and all are welcome. If you are 12 or over and are interested in match play and honing your skills with Dean, get a group together of like-minded peers.
Trembath and the club will then do all they can to facilitate some coaching and match play.
Meanwhile, the Summer Women’s Tennis Competition recently wrapped up.
In A Grade, Bits and Pieces, consisting of Wendy Izzard, Joy Ollerton, Helen Burge, Robyn Stevens and Patrina Albury, defeated the Bluebirds’ side which included Rachell Cox, Shane Ryan, Sue Ayres, Chrissy Carter and Kirsty Cole.
There was a dead heat in sets and games in B grade – it ended three sets each, 26-games all.
On a count back of season points, the Smashettes (Laura Wickham, Lizz Hickey, Naomi Walden and Sandra Ollerton) narrowly defeated the Double Faults (Amanda Albury, Fiona Groom, Dominique McGovern and Lizzie Kissi).
A great mixed teams tennis competition has been established on Tuesday nights and will continue to run through the winter school terms.
The more players the better so if you are interested in joining please call Rachell Cox on 6545-4101 for further details, or visit the Scone Hardcourt Tennis Association Facebook page.
A men's tennis group is also getting together on Monday nights to play sets.
If there are any men young and old who would like to join they would be very welcome.
