On Saturday, 29th November from 8.30am to 1.00pm Range Tennis Club will be running the AO Blitz Ultimate Club Challenge in Toowoomba.
The aim is to increase tennis participation in Toowoomba and grow the Club Membership base.
This is part of the AO Blitz Australiawide Competition that has tennis clubs all over the country pitted against each other to host the best Club Challenge ever.
TheÂ winningÂ QldÂ regionalÂ clubÂ andÂ thenÂ theÂ AustraliaÂ wideÂ winnerÂ willÂ receiveÂ majorÂ fundingÂ forÂ their
club/region,Â toÂ eventsÂ suchÂ asÂ theÂ AustralianÂ OpenÂ andÂ theÂ BrisbaneÂ InternationalÂ nextÂ year.
AllÂ ToowoombaÂ Primary SchoolsÂ (publicÂ andÂ private) areÂ invited to attend and compete for major prizes by participating in what’s called a 3 on 3 Team Challenge, never before seen in Queensland.
TheÂ competitionÂ involvesÂ 3Â manÂ teamsÂ playingÂ onÂ aÂ miniÂ courtÂ setÂ upÂ andÂ usingÂ miniÂ paddleÂ batsÂ plus
lowÂ compressionÂ balls.Â Â Range Tennis Club’s head coach, Adolfio Garcia says that this is something he would like to see hosted annually.
Â TheÂ AOÂ BlitzÂ ClubÂ ChallengeÂ isÂ aÂ fullyÂ freeÂ andÂ volunteeredÂ eventÂ soÂ noÂ chargesÂ willÂ beÂ madeÂ to
anyÂ schoolÂ participantÂ onÂ theÂ day.Â For sporting groups that join us on the day have the opportunity of putting up their branded shade/sales tents around the courts for spectators and participants to sit under during the course of the day.
Range Tennis Club’s Courts are on the corner of Lindsay and Hawthorn Streets, Toowoomba East (part of the Clive Berghofer Sports Stadium precinct).
