The fab group at Wheelchair Sports WA recently ran a series of wheelchair tennis training sessions at the Herb Graham Centre in Mirrabooka.
These training sessions resulted in a doubles tournament being played at the State Tennis Centre in
Burswood on Thursday 23rd of August. Organised and run by the team at Tennis West, four very competitive doubles pairs took to the courts to prove who had the moves on the court.
Despite the fact that they *say* they had been practicing up until the tournament there were a lot of laughs as kamikaze balls flew around and team communications broke down…..note to Adam and Georgia: don’t play on a team with your “real” partner!!
In the end the partnership of Kim Robins and Sam Clarke ruled the night, taking out what is to become the Annual Trophy in the finals match against Adam Deans and Georgia Inglis. Special mention from me goes to Jake Kavanaugh who I could swear believed I had a target on the top of my camera 😉
If you are interested in having a go at wheelchair tennis the next session begins in November and is open to all – yes including able-bodied. Contact Lindal at Wheelchair Sports WA; firstname.lastname@example.org
