Tennis courts put to work

The tennis courts were covered in activities last Sunday as the Forbes Town and District Tennis Club hosted their Charity Fun Day.

The charity day ran from 10am to 4pm and was hosted to celebrate three newly resurfaced tennis courts.

Local coach Peter Clifton said they had a great turnout, with around 116 people helping them celebrate the upgraded tennis courts.

Plenty of fun activities for kids and adults to enjoy including a jumping castle, putt putt tennis and a serving challenge were hosted.

"The club is extremely happy with the roll-up of people."

Mr Clifton said it was a really good day and the warm weather really helped the day more pleasant.

The Charity Fun Day raised funds for the Forbes District Hospital, and thanks to a good turnout, they raised a fair amount for the Hospital according to Mr Clifton.

Also making their way down to the tennis courts for the day were members of the Forbes Hockey Club, who put on a hockey demonstration for interested spectators.

Mr Clifton said the Forbes Town and District Tennis Club would like to to thank everyone who came down to the tennis courts to help them celebrate the day.

Mr Clifton said they would also like thank the Hockey Club for putting on the exhibition match as well as the people who came down to help run all of the activities.

There aren't many major activities planned for the tennis courts during the winter season, except for a few social days organised by the Forbes Town and District Tennis Club
