Comment: the peace and joy of Christmas

Christmas has always been a special time, and it holds some wonderful memories of early years, when youthful exuberance shaped my world, and it’s a time remembered for the happiness of family gatherings and the sound of kids waking early to see what Santa had delivered.

I miss travelling. I miss the thrill of going somewhere new. The last few years feels like we’ve had no adventures. No interesting and foreign lands to explore.  It’s been all about staying at home.

As part of a drive to increase junior participation in local tennis, the Ballina Tennis Club is inviting interested children and their friends and parents to play Hot Shots Tennis free of charge any weekday after school on the courts in Burnet Street.

Racquets and balls will be provided if needed, and all you need to do is turn up any time between 4 and 6pm.

Hot Shots is a modified form of the game, using lighter racquets, low-compression balls that don’t bounce too high, and a reduced court area, thus making learning tennis fun and easy for primary school-aged children.

Hot Shots is run at more than 1,000 venues around Australia.

The Ballina club has also offered to run demonstrations or practice sessions at all local primary schools with a view to running an inter-school Hot Shots Challenge in third term.

More details can be sought from the club coach Nathan on 0410 619 803, club president Martin on 6685 4081, or via the club website: www.ballinatennis.com.au.
