KYVALLEY Tennis Club has hosted their final Hot Shots session for Term 1 of 2018, in another successful program with 60 children registering.
Unfortunately the six-week program was cut to five weeks with the first week cancelled due to 40 degree heat.
The club was thrilled to have Tennis Victoria’s new Participation Leader for Country North West, Peter Bertoncini join them to run the last session for the season. The children loved his exciting and interactive warm up games and drills and then enjoyed a round robin.
At the completion of the session all children enjoyed a break up barbecue and Peter Bertoncini presented all children with an ANZ Hot Shots Participation Certificate.
Hot Shots co-ordinator Melissa Williams thanked all children for participating, parents for supporting the program and acknowledged all the club volunteers who helped run the program. She also thanked Woolworths Kyabram for donating the sausages for the breakup barbecue. She concluded by inviting everyone back in week two of term four of this year, for another six-week program.
Another highlight for the club at the conclusion of the tennis season was being presented with a copy of the late Mr A Parkinson’s life membership from 1959-1960. Recently at the club’s end of season breakup Mr Parkinson’s daughter, Margaret Steddar presented the club with a copy of her late father’s Life Membership.
At the time when the membership was awarded, only one original copy was presented to the life member and this copy had been misplaced for many decades only to be found 10 days prior.
The club expressed sincere thanks to Margaret for presenting the club with a copy so it could be mounted in the clubhouse with the other club life members.
