The following report is from Karen Hampton - NZCT Aims Games Tennis Coordinator
The NZCT AIMS GAMES is back at Tauranga/Mount Maunganui for its 10th Year from 15th - 20th September and bigger than ever with last year seeing over 6,000 competitors. It is now recognised as a National tournament and going International. We have entries in the tennis this year from Australia and Cook Islands. There is a total of 16 sporting codes in the AIMS GAMES.
The sporting championships give 11, 12 and 13 year olds an opportunity to compete as an individual or in a team against the best of their age in sixteen different sports. Each of the sports offered in 2013 are hosted in superb facilities where the best for their age will have the opportunity to perform at their best. The aim of the event is to provide opportunities for the student in the middle years to compete at an elite level, be active, celebrate fair play and enjoy success and it is through events such as the NZCT AIMS GAMES that these students will be provided with challenges and the opportunity to perform to a high standard.
Tennis is as popular as ever with over 40 players in each boys and girls divisions last year. Tennis is played at Blake Park, Mount Maunganui Tennis Club and there is a Singles and Doubles competition over the course of the week. Last years winners were Macsen Sisam and Nina Paripovich.
