Two Wells youngsters selected for association

Marie Tapscott reports 

In their first season with the Gawler Tennis Association, the Two Wells District Tennis club junior players are getting into the swing of things.

On Sunday 16th November, the Barossa Gawler Junior Team headed off to their first junior inter-association match at Port Pirie. Two Wells junior players, Chelsea Foubister and Airlie Tapscott, were selected for the team after attending try-outs. Chelsea played in 14 years & under, while Airlie played in 10 years & under for her first ever competition. Both girls played 3 sets of tennis – doubles, singles & mixed doubles – and had a lot of fun meeting juniors from Port Pirie as well as from Barossa & Gawler. Their tennis improved significantly and both girls loved the whole experience. The benefits to junior players are not only the affiliation with Tennis SA or the Hot Shots tennis coaching, but also the chance to improve tennis skills through inter-association matches and competitions.

The second inter-association match is scheduled against Mildura at Mildura for the 13-14th December and is a popular event. If any junior players are interested, please contact Marie Tapscott on 0149 838 929 or email juniors@gawlertennis.com.au for more information.
