Hume hosts tennis program

Early next year, the Hume Tennis Club in Yass will host its annual school holiday program for children from the ages of four to 16 years old. 

The program will run from January 15 to January 17, and it will cater to three different age groups.

The four to six year old age group will go from 8am to 9am each morning, the seven to 10 year age group will run from 9am to 10am, and the 11 to 16 group will run from 10am to 12pm. 

Head coach at the Hume Tennis Club, Scott Eulenstein, says that he intentionally chooses to run the course to coincide with the beginning of the Australian Open. 

“I’ve tried to align it with the start of the Australian Open, so it gets families thinking about tennis, watching their favourite stars on television,” Mr Eulenstein said. 

“And it provides a valuable opportunity to link in with your local tennis club for the 2018 season.” 

The holiday program is run every year, and its popularity has seemingly increased correspondingly, with Mr Eulenstein recording a high of 62 students last year. 

“It’s been one of my most popular camps, this summer one,” he said. 

“Last year, for example, we had 62 students, so hopefully we can get up and around that [same number].” 

The sessions will consist of a number of drills and games which are designed to improve basic tennis skills and allow the kids to have fun at the same time. 

Mr Eulenstein explained that the camp covers an introduction to tennis, and all the requisite skills with prizes available for the participants. 

However, it is also an opportunity for the kids to meet fellow tennis enthusiasts from around the region. 

“We have a mix of kids from all around the different country towns, so it’s a good chance for those kids to network as well,” Mr Eulenstein said. 

The camp will run at the Hume Tennis Club. For the children aged between four and 10, participation is $50 each. For the children aged between 11 to 16, it is $75.
