As part of the This Girl Can – VIC campaign, we asked participants at the Country Week event in Swan Hill, what inspires and motivates you to play Tennis?

Rose, Helen and Gwenda have amazing stories to tell.

Although these women had doubts about trying something new and whether they were good enough, they gave it a go anyway. They now play tennis to keep active and socialise with friends – it’s now a big part of their lives!

As Rose says, “It’s about getting out and having a go and having fun and enjoying the sport, and I just love it”.
