SAC’s up-and-coming teenage tennis players braved the rain and brought out the sun last Friday morning (14th) for what we hope will be the first of many doubles mix-in tournaments at the Club in the weeks and months ahead. The quality of the tennis was excellent given the damp courts and soggy tennis balls.
We saw some powerful play from 14/15-year-olds Simon, Alexander, Annabelle Guez, Jean and Emmanuel, while 12-year-olds Gabriel and Luke more than held their own with some strong serving and angled forehands.
A big thanks to Cecilia Amor Mahia for organising, to Matthew Curtin for supervising, to Sandy De la Taille and Kerry Lloyd for help with the after-tennis lunch and to François Girault for the coffee for the adults afterwards.
Parents and teenage players who would like to participate in future mix-ins should please sent their details to Cecilia who has set up special a WhatsApp group.
