All set to have a ball on the tennis court

BRAD Boynton thinks there are lots of great reasons to play tennis and there is about to be one more for Yarraman residents.

"It's a non-contact sport, so you can play it for your whole life," he said.

"It's a clean sport, it's a challenging sport and most of all it's a heap of fun."

Boynton is a tennis coach already training junior and adult players in Wondai, Nanango, Kumbia and schools around the region, and now he's setting up training sessions in Yarraman.

"They've got a healthy club down there and hopefully we can only add to that and help them grow," he said.

"We're trying to get more people involved in the sport."

Mr B's Professional Tennis will hold a sign-on day at the tennis courts in Yarraman on Saturday where everybody will get the chance to have a hit.

"What we're looking at is to garner interest and hopefully within the week after that sign-on day, we can get lessons and coaching programs going," Boynton said.
