Just wanted to say thanks for a great tennis experience at Blue Gum over the holidays.  My son Fraser (12) was booked in to attend the first week only, but enjoyed it so much that he wanted to play the second week of the holidays  too.  Great coach, excellent tuition and what an achievement - 10 mornings of tennis which beats computer games any  day in my opinion! Very much appreciated.  We have now booked another block of Term Tennis on a Saturday morning.
