Trinity News : April 2011
18 TRINITY NEWS A group of Trinity’s best tennis players toured Melbourne during the Australian Open 2011, giving them invaluable opportunity to improve their Tennis through match play and expert coaching whilst gaining immeasurable inspiration from watching players at the Aussie Open. An intensive week saw the boys play four schools, attend five sessions at the Australian Open and participate in an elite Training session at Kooyong Lawn Tennis Club. The matches against Scotch College Melbourne, King’s School Sydney, Trinity Grammar Kew and Auckland Grammar, New Zealand,whilst fiercely contested were played admirably well in great spirit, displaying individual brilliance and cohesive teamwork. We spent numerous hours in the Rod Laver and Hisense Arenas. The boys enjoyed watching their favourite players up close, and derived great pleasure from being part of the Grand Slam of Asia Pacific. A Tour highlight was a morning coaching session at Kooyong Lawn Tennis Club, conducted by David McPherson and Andrew Florrent both former ATP top 10 doubles players. Everyone received a greater understanding of many tactical and technical aspects of the game. The boys also enjoyed competing with other schools at the various venues and on the different court surfaces. The cameradie and personal relationships in a team environment developed throughout the week were another advantage. The Tour concluded with a presentation Lunch at St Kilda Beach. Congratulations to William Cook (12Sc) (Best player on tour), Angus Coble (11Ho) (Most dedicated player) and Neil Parekh (10Ar) (Most improved player). All the boys carried themselves well on tour, receiving many positive comments from the general public concerning their good behaviour and general demeanour. Thanks to Dr Fred Osman and Mr Guy Dennis (MIC of Tennis) whose tireless efforts created a well-organised, exciting and enhancing educational experience for the boys. | Jeremy Dykgraaff Director of Tennis Coaching The formal start to the Cadet Year for 2011 was the Parade held around the Quadrangle on Friday February 11, during which various presentations and awards were made. We are indebted to the Ashfield RSL who generously presented each Company Sergeant Major with a swagger stick, and also to Mr Peter Wood, former School Marshal who each year donates a Pace-stick to the RSM of the Unit.
