A big thank you to Peter Koehli who ran a free tennis clinic for the club as this season began.  Many of the techniques he showed are on display weekly as the season unfolds.

A large number of participants with a wide variety of experience attended his one day clinic. Despite cooler temperatures it was a huge success.
