Vic - Monthly sessions at Melbourne Park (Sundays)

August 23, 2016
On the 3rd Sunday of each month we head to Melbourne Park, for the ACE Tennis Club, organised mainly by Deaf Children Australia. Sessions are run by pro tennis coach Peter Thrupp, who reached the second round of the Australian Open in 1986. Peter grew up partially deaf and attend mainstream schools, and knows first hand what it's like. Sessions are supported by experienced deaf tennis players in a voluntary capacity, and interpreters are provided to ensure everyone can be fully involved. 

Information and a flyer for the program through to the end of 2016 is available at: http://deafchildrenaustralia.org.au/event/ace-tennis-club-2/
