Night fixtures off to a great



season startGLADSTONE District Tennis Association Night Fixtures got off to a great start at the Glenlyon Street Complex this week with good numbers playing on Tuesday and Wednesday Nights.

The Association has introduced some incentive prizes each night and these will be awarded for various things.

Some theme nights may also be introduced during the season. Congratulations to the grading committee chaired by Rob McBean for getting all the teams organised and on the courts this week.

The first season will go through until early May with a finals night planned with a barbeque and presentation night. Any players still wishing to be involved in night tennis can phone Rob 07 4972 2772 to nominate for a spot in the reserve pool.

Friday juniors FRIDAY afternoon junior tennis fixtures started last Friday with 85 players attending. The competition in all divisions is very good with Division 1 and 2 the strongest in several seasons.

The Ace Tennis Beginners program is also going well so any junior who is wishing to start their tennis careers please come along and join in. The cost is only $3 per week for two hours training from 3.30 -5.30pm.

Players who have yet to nominate for fixtures are also still welcome and can join into the team competition. Play starts at 3.30pm every Friday and the cost is $3 plus a small membership.
