Relax on court, social tennis is ace

May 31, 2017

Jenny Thompson, Dave Stephens and Maree Bell (along with member Jeanette Dedman) invite one and all to join in with social tennis.

HEATHCOTE Tennis Club is serving up a winner with social tennis.

Held every Wednesday, the session allows locals to sharpen their skills while also building community relationships.

Social tennis member Jenny Thompson said she didn’t know how to hold a racket when she first started playing. ‘‘

‘‘Now I love it and can’t do without it,” she said.

The group encouraged people of all ages to come enjoy a game.

“It’s happy, social tennis,” Ms Thompson said.

“And don’t even worry if you can’t play.”

Ms Thompson said she had experienced health improvements since she joined social tennis.

“My doctor keeps saying to me ‘whatever you’re doing, keep doing it.’

“It gives you an opportunity to exercise and get some vitamin D, all while having a wonderful time.

“And if you’ve got anything tough going on in life, just take it out on the ball.”

Social tennis is held at 10am every Wednesday at the Heathcote Tennis Club. For details call Maree Bell on 5433 2730 or Jenny Thompson on 0417 492 959.
