Australian tennis legend Evonne Goolagong will host a Tennis Come and Try Day clinic for young Indigenous Australians at Glenorchy Tennis Club in Berriedale, Tasmania.
The clinic, on Sunday 14 October from 10.30am-1.00pm, is open to children aged five to 15, giving them the chance to have fun and give tennis a go.
The introductory Tennis Come and Try Day clinics are designed to increase the number of Indigenous kids playing tennis.
This is a way of increasing their health, education and employment opportunities, part of the aims of the Australian Government’s Learn Earn Legend! initiative, for which Goolagong is an ambassador.
Goolagong and her brother Ian, Tennis Australia’s National Indigenous Coach, will be at the clinic taking kids through several fun activities including Tennis Australia’s kids’ starter program and MLC Tennis Hot Shots.
The clinic is run by the Evonne Goolagong Foundation in conjunction with Tennis Australia, and is supported by the Learn Earn Legend! initiative.
