Game to play some tennis?
Good game: Whangarei Veterans Tennis president Alice Ottley, left, 89-year-old Noel Taylor, 82-year-old Alice Taylor
and 83-year-old Cynthia Voss are all smiles after playing a friendly game of tennis.

We're a social club,
we encourage people
of all ages and abilities.
Like vintage wine the Whangarei
Veterans Tennis Club gets better
The club's 50 active members
include at least seven octo-
genarians and many in their 70s.
Many didn't start playing until
they retired but are now honing
their skills with racquet and ball.

panionship and friendly compe-
tition all adds to the health and

part of the club and members try
to follow up with players if they
have been unwell, she says.
A new memorial cup honouring
club stalwart Melba Wright, who
died last year, will now be
awarded to those who go the extra
mile to serve the club.
Alice says any potential players
are welcome to come along.
We hope it's inspirational for
people to come out and enjoy the
The club plays from 8.30am on
Tuesday mornings at the Kamo
Tennis Club and Friday mornings
at the Thomas Neale Family
Memorial Park in Kamo.
Alice says the club is looking
forward to Tennis Northland
replacing the hard court surface
at the Thomas Neale Family
Memorial Park at Winger Cres.
The association has promised to
surface half of the 12 courts in
softer astro-turf because it is
easier on seniors' joints, she says.
