Sporting Grants were announced by Shepparton City Council with Dhurringile Tennis Club receiving “our Sporting Future” Funding. DTC will receive $4500 for its Sports Aid Project –Community Play Junior Tennis. The funds will be used to purchase equipment and offer primary school aged children of all abilities the fundamental skills of developing tennis through coaching.
The sporting equipment will be tailored made including mini nets, racquets and low compression balls. This ensures children are introduced to tennis in an environment which is suited to their age and skill level and makes learning tennis fun and easy. Also, it encourages children to play tennis through community play so as to keep tennis viable within our area. The clubs aim is to provide coaching in terms three and four leading up to summer tennis competition and intergrade children to play either ANZ League Tennis or possible enter in the Shepparton Junior Tennis Association.
The program will be organised by DTC qualified “Community Play” coaches. DTC will conduct the “Community Play Junior tennis” by utilizing Sacred Heart’s tennis courts after school. The Program will be held on Mondays commencing in Term 3. Schools and community groups/Clubs will be notified through their newsletter.
