VIC - TENNIS DAYS @ BAXTER TENNIS CLUB - 26 OCT & 30 NOV

September 14, 2014

Playing tennis is great fun for all ages. Your big tennis day at Baxter Tennis Club will offer first timers coaching with the support of qualified coaches and match play for experience players. It’s a sporting opportunity to develop your skills and compete in a round robin trophy tournament. It’s going to be a fun and social day out for deaf and hearing players of all ages and abilities. This ‘ACE’ activity is made possible with the support of Thrupp Tennis, Baxter Tennis Club and Deaf Tennis Australia.

 

“I wanted to say how good and well organised (if a little chilly) the tennis was for the Deaf Sports Day.  Peter Thrupp was so patient with the kids, some of whom I think had never picked up a tennis racquet before. A great introduction to the game for them.”  - Teacher of the Deaf, Victorian College for the Deaf (August 2013)
