SOSUNS athlete Stephanie Walker shares why she loves playing tennis at SOSUNS
Ten years ago the first sport I played with Special Olympics was tennis. I decided on tennis as it is a very strong social game and can be played by all ages. The girls that I play with have become my friends. We try to organise a dinner to celebrate the end of each term as well as many other social events outside tennis.
As my playing improved over the years I decided to try my hand at competition. This introduced me to a whole new group of friends and characters from all over Sydney. All the competitions are played in a wonderful spirit of sportsmanship and respect for your opponent. Earlier this year I was selected to represent NSW at the National Games in Adelaide next year. I am looking forward to this as another great adventure and opportunity to meet some new people and share an exciting experience.
SOSUNS currently runs tennis programs at Asquith, Hornsby, Cherrybrook, Epping, North Ryde and Castle Cove and is looking to boost our numbers next term. If you’re interested in joining, please fill out the form below
