Jayla and Ben hit the big time

ALMOST 70 children from all over Gippsland tried out at Sale for selection to the Gippsland All Stars tennis team.
Inverloch Tennis Club’s Ben Clements and Jayla Morcom were both selected after the round robin format competition which included practice sessions where participants were taught important tactics in a friendly and fun environment.
Ben and Jayla were among the top six players from both the 10s and 12s age groups selected onto the Gippsland All Stars team which played Bendigo All Stars team at Melbourne Park.
After two hours of match play the two teams could not be separated on points and drew nine rubbers each.
Ian Barclay, the coach of Pat Cash, was present to help and advise the children.
To make enquiries about next term’s Tennis Australia Super 10s and 12s competition call Traralgon Tennis Club coach Graham Charlton on 0417 532 351.
