Ever been keen to give tennis a shot (pun intended), but don’t know where to start? Well, a series of new social tennis events, aimed at beginners is kicking off at Bar Beach in Newcastle this February.
It’s a new format to check out, or get back into, the sport with fun tennis activities, food, music and drinks. Organisers say that participants need no skill or racquet or event a mate to play with.
Each event goes for around an hour and a half and aims to give you all the skills you need to get started playing tennis. Organisers will warm-up, take you through some tennis activities and at the end, you’ll have a chance to get to know your fellow players, and maybe make plans to meet up for a game.
Even though Australia was a little late to the social tennis party, as it was initially seen as a sport for the elite, nearly one million Aussies now play in a club or for recreation and fitness. In a recent survey, tennis was ranked as the seventh most participated sport or physical activity in the country and the community continues to grow every year.
