World Tennis Day at Terranora


At tennis clubs across the country, people of all ages and tennis abilities are being invited to pick up their racquets and join World Tennis Day 2014, joining some of the biggest names in the sport – including Andre Agassi, Pete Sampras, Novak Djokovic, Li Na and Aussie Sam Stosur – who will all be taking part in the official celebrations on Monday March 3.

The second-ever World Tennis Day aims to promote tennis and increase participation in the sport worldwide.

Tennis clubs around Australia will be hosting World Tennis Day events from Saturday March 1 to Monday March 3.

Terranora Tennis Club is just one of the many clubs celebrating World Tennis Day on Sunday March 2 by opening its courts and facilities to the public and hosting an Open Day from 1pm to 6pm.

Tennis regulars and those who have never picked up a racquet before are encouraged to head to the club to enjoy the free activities on offer, including: 1–2pm Hot Shots for 10/under; 2–3pm Skills & Drills (a) adults (b) children; 1–3pm courts open for free play; 3–6pm Social American Tournament for members and friends with free barbecue at 5pm.

‘The day promises to be a lot of fun for the whole community,’ said club president Rob Nienhuis. ‘You don’t need to know how to play tennis to come along and join in. It might just be the start of a new interest and new friendships.’

Tennis Australia CEO Craig Tiley said World Tennis Day was a positive initiative for the sport.

‘Fifty-eight countries were involved in World Tennis Day last year, and we hope to see lots of Australian tennis clubs and the public embrace the event in 2014,’ he said.

A note from the editorial team

Some of The Echo’s editorial team: journalists Paul Bibby and Aslan Shand, editor Hans Lovejoy, photographer Jeff Dawson and Mandy Nolan

The Echo has never underestimated the intelligence and passion of its readers. In a world of corporate banality and predictability, The Echo has worked hard for more than 30 years to help keep Byron and the north coast unique with quality local journalism and creative ideas. We think this area needs more voices, reasoned analysis and ideas than just those provided by News Corp, lifestyle mags, Facebook groups and corporate newsletters.

The Echo is one hundred per cent locally owned and one hundred per cent independent. As you have probably gathered from what is happening in the media industry, it is not cheap to produce a weekly newspaper and a daily online news service of any quality.

We have always relied entirely on advertising to fund our operations, but often loyal readers who value our local, independent journalism have asked how they could help ensure our survival.

Any support you can provide to The Echo will make an enormous difference. You can make a one-off contribution or a monthly one. With your help, we can continue to support a better informed local community and a healthier democracy for another 30 years.”
