Report on U17/U20 initiative Mini Tennis.


Sunday 19th March saw the first meeting associated with this club activity. It was a fantastic turn out (more than 30 athletes) After a short presentation of the ideas behind the initiative, and an introduction to few of the senior club members the fun began. A short break for refreshments (fabulous food laid on by Jean), and the night ended with a group warm down taken by the senior athletes. It would also be wrong of me not to mention the venue and their welcoming staff, a potential location for indoor training next season? Few observations; we now know why Mandy and Steve are such good athletes their drive to win is unquestionable, Jacob and Rhiannon showed that this was not the first time they had played tennis, Maddie needs to see someone about the strange grunt she has each time she hits the ball (Sharapova she is not !!), I could go on but all in all good fun was had by everyone and I felt the evening successfully completed its objective. Now bring on the track season !!!
