Oh la la! Tennis club marks Bastille Day in style

Flagstaff Team

Pardon their French… Ngataringa Tennis Club celebrated Bastille Day and its own French links, with an event last week.

Ngataringa Tennis Club members celebrated Bastille Day last week, dressing to impress with French berets and other Gallic garb.

A few sets of mixed doubles were planned, but the rain intervened, so the players gathered upstairs in the club house for French snacks and treats instead.

Miam Miam, a local food business on the Shore, catered the event and made traditional French sausages for the club to enjoy. Funds were raised for the club.

The club has a French coach, Lucien Lemay, and Belgian head coach, Gilles deGouy.

The club’s private tennis coaching recently began for term 3, and will run for the next nine weeks. Players of all ages are welcome, with coaching sessions available from beginner to advanced levels.
