Over the last 18 months G.A.S has had a partnership with Tennis Australia and Geelong Lawn Tennis Club to create and run a local wheelchair tennis program.
We meet each week and have a mix of juniors and seniors players come down for specialised coaching and free gameplay.
A key part of our current plan is to ensure our players have a development pathway for competitive play. Thanks to Greg Crump and Holly Tawse from Tennis Australia (TA) we are now a regular feature in the TA junior development sessions.
We have also have been able to have TA coaching staff attend our local sessions for coach development and we are starting to reap the rewards.
Last week two of our players, Arlo and Hamish, travelled up to Melbourne for a development camp and we received great feedback on their skill development. Greg Crump commented in a text “The juniors from Geelong have improved so much. Good one”.
This feedback is great to receive and is a testament to the great program we have here. This will spur us on to keep on track.
Thanks too to our parents and supporters for helping us get to where we are today.
