Indigenous tennis program hits Victoria

Date posted: 20 March 2013

Tennis Come and Try Days have commenced in Victoria, giving Indigenous kids aged five to fifteen the chance to pick up a racquet, have fun and give tennis a real go.

The Tennis Come and Try Days form part of Learn earn legend!, an Australian Government initiative designed to encourage and support young Indigenous Australians to stay at school, get a job and be a legend for themselves, their family and their community.

Australian tennis legend Evonne Goolagong, who is a Learn earn legend! ambassador, said that the Tennis Come and Try Days could potentially pave the way for many sporting opportunities for young Indigenous kids.

'Our coaches are looking for kids who display enthusiasm, determination and a willingness to improve themselves given half a chance,' she said.
