Continuing our relationship with MIND Australia, our second group of clients has accessed a great tennis experience at North Park Tennis Club.
With 20 sessions funded by a combination of NPTC contributions and ACE Funding, clients were welcomed by our club coach, received tailored lessons and were provided access to our courts to practice their tennis.
Joe, who participated in all sessions learned many skills and was awarded with a racquet and trophy. Shortly afterwards Joe said in relation to his trophy “I’m pinching myself I can’t believe it, I’ve never won anything” and “Wait until my sister sees my new racquet!”
MIND attributes the tennis program as making a big difference to Joe and also extended thanks to NPTC and its secretary, Kath Nolan, for making the program happen.
