Junior Christmas Hamper Competition
The annual junior Christmas Hamper Competition took place at Athlone Tennis Club recently. A fantastic turnout of 32 juniors, ranging in ages from 7 to 17, took part in this competition– everyone looked fantastic in their best Christmas outfits and playing some great tennis too! All competitors were rewarded for their efforts on a damp, grey day by going home with a selection box, and multiple candy canes. Everyone was a winner! The event was also thoroughly enjoyed by the parents who were present on the day. That concludes the Sunday afternoon supervised junior tennis for the year. It will recommence in the new year.
Club nights continue on Monday (men’s night), Wednesday (ladies’ night) and Thursday (mixed doubles night). Play begins at 7.30 each night, so grab your racket and come on down to the club for a night of fun.
The last Saturday coaching before Christmas took place last Saturday. Coaching will recommence with coach Clem Higginbotham in January.
