Emerging tennis players will help Apollo Bay return to competitive tennis in the Polwarth association for the first time in more than 30 years.
The coastal club will feature in junior competitions for the upcoming season after a spike in interest from up-and-coming players.
Polwarth president Rhiannon White said coaching from experienced tennis mentor Dean Goldsworthy prompted the club to create three junior teams.
Pennyroyal gun White also lives at the seaside town and has been putting the players through their paces ahead of their debut seasons.
“They’ve got three junior teams at the Bay,” she said.
“Dean Goldsworthy has been coaching the kids for the past years and a few of them indicated they wanted to play.
“They’ll be playing in Saturday Division Two, Three and Four competitions.
“They haven’t really played competitively before, but we’ve teaching them court etiquette and things like that.”
