On Sunday Oct 11 our Victoria-based players (VDTA) hosted a Come 'n Try Day at Melbourne Park.  Many thanks to the 10 attendees who helped make it a fun afternoon.  There was a big mix of ages from 6 though to 40, and it certainly seemed like everyone was getting into it and hitting some balls!  Stephen Swann was on hand to talk about about his success in the Men's Doubles at the Deaflympics in Taipie, and there were many helpers to help him hold his (suprisingly heavy) silver medal! 

A couple of our volunteer coaches did a short "Orientation to Coaching" course with Tennis Australia in the morning and were up to speed with the latest and greatest activities to help people (especiallythe younger kids using modified equipment) get their first taste of tennis.  This went really well - thanks to DSA for helping organise funds to support this.  Thanks also to Tennis Australia / Victoria for the loan of some modified equipment, and providing a few giveaways for the kids.
