Jordan Biggins was presented the MLC Tennis Hot Shot of the Month award for June during a special presentation at Canterbury Primary School earlier today.
The award was presented to Jordan by Tennis Victoria’s Hot Shots Coordinator Danielle Lowerson.
The competition is open to MLC Tennis Hot Shots students from around Australia and the winning entry won her a prize back from MLC which included an equipment kit, an iPod touch and a VIP trip for Jordan and her family to Australian Open 2013.
Jordan, who plays at Toptenn Tennis Academy, is now in the running to win the MLC Tennis Hot Shot of the Year award, with the winner receiving $5000, one year of free tennis coaching and a tennis lesson with Australian champion Alicia Molik.
To register for the competition, Jordan had 100 words to explain why she wanted to be the MLC Tennis Hot Shot of the Year. This was her winning entry:
I think I will be an MLC Player of the Year because I am always having fun and I always try my hardest. I don’t go “but I wasn’t ready for the ball!” I hope everyone has fun too! I am never grumpy and I don’t treat the tennis court in a bad way. I love playing tennis and want to learn to be a really good player. I listen to my coach and always help to collect all the balls. I never miss my lessons, even when it rained the one time. I got wet all over but still had fun.
Entries for the competition are still open; players can enter here for their chance to win the MLC Tennis Hot Shot of the month prize and go in the running for the MLC Tennis Hot Shot of the Year award.
