Junior Scholarship

 Warren Woodcock Family - Junior Coaching Scholarship

The club is deeply appreciative of the sponsorship of our Junior Tennis Coaching Scholarship by the family of Warren Woodcock (senior), to the value of $1,000 over the course of a year. Warren (senior) has recently been very ill, and the thoughts of our club are very much with him and his family. 

The coaching scholarship is awarded each term to a different junior, not necessarily on the basis simply of talent. Rather, it is about the character and values displayed by the young person…… 

Are they applying themselves with their best efforts?  Do they listen to feedback from their coaches?  Do they demonstrate good sportsmanship and respect for both their team-mates and opponents?  Are they showing a strong desire to continue to improve?  Are they good role models for younger juniors at the club?

We are pleased to announce that this terms winner of the Woodcock family coaching scholarship is a sister and brother combination shared award - Lily and Leo.  

Their coach Kelsey said “ This will mean a lot to them, as well as to their parents.  These are two young people who practice regularly and show great character on the court.  They simply really enjoy playing the game. Lily is 14 and her brother Leo is 16.  Maybe there might be juniors around with more natural talent, but you can always guarantee that these two will be competing to the best of their ability and will never ever give up.  In the years ahead, it is their courage and determination that will enable them to achieve their goals in life”

Leo, club coach Kelsey and Lily.  Congratulations to our scholarship winners.
