The fourth of 25 planned Females in Tennis Development Camps run through Tennis NSW was held at Ulladulla on Sunday March 28. Thanks to funding which comes as part of the 2019 Federal Government’s $12 million commitment to women and girls in tennis, the event was provided at no cost to players and targeted at all female tennis players aged 10 – 14 years.
A group of 20 local enthusiastic tennis players signed up for the free camp. The girls were mentored before they hit the courts and then it was the parents turn to be informed about “What Girls are looking for from sport”.
Jessica Moore and Monique Adamzcak delivered the session alongside Emma Shoemaker and Kristina Pejkovic which aimed to develop player performance both on and off the court . Older girls from the Ulladulla Tennis Academy also helped out while gaining new ideas themselves.
Designed specifically for girls and reflective of what is being seen in the modern women’s game, participants focused on skill development, peer connection, fun, friends and unique experiences within tennis.
This was a fantastic opportunity for these young players providing fun, skills and knowledge for the girls and their parents!
We thank Kristina, Jess, Monique and Emma, for spending the day at Ulladulla Tennis Centre giving the tennis camp participants tips on enjoying the sport and improving their skills including practising a drive volley drill. Awesome day for all!
