Serving tennis to our Valley kids
JUNIOR tennis is booming.
A record 35 junior players representing Upper Orara, Karangi, Coramba and Nana Glen Primary Schools attended the 11th Annual Orara Valley Tennis Day.
To assist the players with specialist coaching, Allan Pade of Harbour Tennis Academy organised the day at Westside Tennis Club.
The players were split into A, B and C grades with round-robin matches contested so that everybody had a great day and close, exciting tennis was played.
Jess Murray (Upper Orara) won the final of the A Grade against Cody Berry (Coramba) with semi-finalists Dylan Thompson (Coramba) and Dominic Gough (Karangi).
Aiden Whish-Wilson (Karangi) won B Grade against Zack Smith (Karangi) with semi-finalists Matt Thompson (Coramba) and Cody Bennett (Karangi).
Nana Glen's Zac Pyper was the winner of C Grade against Cassandra Collett (Coramba) with semi-finalists Kieren Long (Karangi) and Lachlan Burns (Karangi).
With more than 50 kids receiving lessons weekly on a Monday, Tuesday or Friday afternoon at Orara Valley Tennis Centre, Mastons Rd, Karangi, it shows that tennis is an enjoyable sport and it will continue to grow in the Orara Valley.
