Two Wells District Tennis Club has kicked off the summer season with a record number of children participating in ANZ Hot Shot coaching.
The club has 45 children taking part in weekly coaching sessions run by Haydn and Rebecca Leo.
This year, in a new initiative, the club is holding weekly themed nights.
Some of the themes of nights already held include Halloween, hot dogs, board games and dress as your favourite tennis player.
This is just one of a few new initiatives creating a positive and vibrant atmosphere at the club.
“The vibe at the club is awesome,” junior coordinator, Marie Tapscott, enthused.
“We’ve created a more welcoming environment, and introduced a little canteen which is very popular.
“It is so good to see so many children in the community participating in tennis.”
The club also has five Saturday teams entered in the Gawler and Districts Tennis Association.
The season started on October 21 and will break for Christmas on December 16, before restarting in the new year on February 3.
Finals will be held on March 24.
Last year, the club’s Division 4 team took home its first premiership trophy and will hope to emulate that success again this season.
In other tennis news, the club recently received $3000 from the state government’s sport and recreational division, which it used to purchase an automatic ball machine.
