Spring Season - School Holiday Break
We hope you are getting satisfaction from your MWM's tennis Spring competition season.
There has been some pressure on filling teams with very strong demand for emergencies but pleasingly with broad cooperation we seem to get by.
Thank you captains for your efforts and thank you to bye team players willing to help out.
We have experienced some variation of team strength within sections, and player standard within teams, but hopefully you are enjoying your tennis & being there on Wednesday morning, win or lose!
SOCIAL TENNIS NEXT TWO WEEKS
Tennis with a coffee, light lunch & good company, will be available from 9.00am at Burden Park & Glen Waverley & from 10.00am at Whites Lane Mulgrave.
RULES OF TENNIS: CAN I SERVE UNDERARM?
An interesting commentary from the Huffington Post which says you can but if you want respect you should announce your intent.
P.S. I don't think you have to announce it if you are going to serve left handed instead of right!!!!
As always we welcome your feedback and get excited when you welcome along new players to our competition
Any questions about how the competition runs can be found in the Guidelines, issued July 2018.
