Tennis took centre stage in Newcastle when the AO Blitz roadshow rolled into the New South Wales city on 2 November.
A highlight of the AO Blitz activation at the town’s Top Spin Tennis Centre was a Cardio Tennis celebrity demonstration, as well as a coinciding junior tournament at the venue.
Newcastle local Trudi Musgrave Edwards, the 1994 Australian Open junior girls singles champion and retired professional player, headlined the celebrity demonstration.
“It was heaps of fun,” Musgrave Edwards said. “I have done a Cardio Tennis course but this was the first time I have done a class and I loved it.”
Joining her were local tennis coaches as well as Jenny Anne Fetch-Hoffman, a former Australian Open player, Richard Nicholls, head coach of Topspin Tennis and former Australian Open qualifying competitor and Greg Brownlow, head coach at Future Stars Tennis Academy.
