Alex and Kylea had an exciting day at the Domain Tennis Centre during the Hobart International, connecting with some of the state’s most promising tennis junior athletes. The atmosphere was filled with the buzz of aspiring athletes eager to learn and share experiences!

As the group gathered, we started to think about renowned athletes who had showcased incredible resilience throughout their careers. The conversation shifted to the importance of understanding what helps individuals bounce back during tough times. Unsurprisingly, Ash Barty emerged as a clear favourite, serving as a shining example of determination.

A standout moment for the team, was the incredible teamwork displayed during various activities. The collaborative spirit was really felt, with each participant feeling included and their contributions valued by the group. The sense of camaraderie fostered an environment where everyone could thrive, echoing the supportive nature of the tennis community.

Adding to the excitement, some of the players had the opportunity to showcase their skills on the prestigious center court before the session. A few others also took on the role of tournament ballkids throughout the week, contributing to the seamless flow of the event.

We’re eager to witness the continued growth and success of these young athletes on their tennis journeys after witnessing their talent and passion on the day. Special thanks to Alyssa and Darren at Tennis Tasmania for having us during such a busy time of the year 🎾
