Hot Shots heat up court

ROUND two of the Grafton City Tennis Club's Hot Shots Comp exceeded expectations with 68 registered players and children jumping at the opportunity to fill in.

Organisers had to bring two matches forward one hour to accommodate for the large field.

Last year there was a large contingent of beginner red ball players using mini nets and occupying only a small area. This time around many players, especially those who attended the holiday coaching clinic, are playing at a higher level.

The success of the event has prompted organisers to plan another Hot Shots Comp which will be held in the second term, starting in the second week after the school holidays.

For anyone interested in playing tennis there are a number of opportunities available to you.

For juniors who can already play may like to put your name down as a fill-in for the Hot Shots Comp on Fridays from 5-6.30pm. For all levels the Hot Shots program is staged from Fridays 4-5pm, group coaching is on Tuesdays from 3.30-4.30pm and Saturdays 8.30-9.30am. Private coaching and toddler tennis are also available.

For adults there is cardio tennis Wednesdays from 6-7pm, social and competition Tuesdays -8pm, ladies comp Tuesdays 9.30am-12.30pm and Thursdays 7-9pm as well as private coaching and court hire.
