Tennis | Serving up a dose of motherly love

IT’S mother o’clock at the Wodonga Tennis Centre.

The popular Tuesday and Thursday summer competition, pictured, kicks off after the school holidays and organisers are targeting mums.

“We have a great set-up and already have 50 women playing on a Tuesday and another 30 to 40 on a Thursday,” Sandra Allen said.

“We have 32 grasscourts for the summer and we’ll soon have 10 new plexicushion courts that will be ready around Christmas. We want to see more mums down playing — it’s safe for the kids, there’s plenty for them to do and its a great social event.”

Allen said tennis ability was optional.

“We have teams of four and they are seeded, so if you want to play, regardless of your ability we will find you a game,” she said.

The competition starts in the second week of October.
