Australian Open Tennis

A group of Year 7 and 8 students attended Day 5 of the Australian Open tennis during the holidays to participate in a Tennis in Secondary Schools Showcase. The group of students demonstrated a cardio tennis session in front of a large crowd before the Grigor Dimitrov v Marcos Baghdatis Round 3 match. The group was able to remain on court to welcome the two players and

Year 8 student Max Fairnie was selected to toss the coin prior to the game. All students thoroughly enjoyed the experience on court with many spending the whole day at Melbourne Park watching the tennis. We would like to thank Mr Sellwood and Mr Groves for organising and accompanying the boys on the day.

The college has been involved as a Cardio Tennis in Secondary Schools pilot for the last two years with all Year 7 students participating in the fitness-based tennis program during physical education classes.
