Juniors Spring into tennis across the Tasman region

The Nelson Bays Tennis Associations primary and intermediate ‘Have a Go’ 2014 open day took place at 11 clubs across the region this weekend. 44 schools from Tapawera to Golden Bay were invited to take part in a free coaching session. This is the third year that all clubs have come together to promote junior tennis across the region over the same weekend. Schools are active in supporting this initiative which enables students to try out tennis with their school mates before committing to the sport during the summer season.

Nelson Lawns was the first to kick off with a 9am start and an enthusiastic bunch of players from Hampden Street School, keeping Andre Van Rooyen and his assistants on their toes. The weather came to the party with a beautiful sunny spring day right from the onset. Suzanne Spencer, Tahunanui Tennis Club and Wakapuaka Tennis Club, split her open day between Saturday and Sunday, catering for the interest from schools close to both clubs. Kolie Van Zyl of Tasman Tennis Club in Richmond had his passionate committee on board to ensure that the large numbers were accommodated with tasty barbequed sausages after each coaching session. Across the hill Golden Bay followed the busy trend, finishing the day with attendance up on previous years. Vanessa Mairs was kept active between Mapua Club and Upper Moutere as was Ngaire Calder between Wakefield, Hope and Tapawera. The sunshine and enthusiastic entries over this weekend’s Nelson Bays Tennis Association Have a Go Day has proved to be a great opening event leading into this year’s summer tennis season across all clubs. Clubs unanimously reported that 100% of their players were new faces, a figure that is up on the last 2 years.
