The Great Southern Tennis Association hosted 69 entries in Saturday's GSTA Junior Age Tennis Tournament at the Victor Harbor Tennis Club. There were seven events guaranteeing lots of tennis for kids involved.

"Playing tennis in a tournament is a completely different experience to inter-club tennis, so it's a priority for the GSTA to host this opportunity for our kids," event organiser, GSTA Junior Co-ordinator Erica Modra said.

The new 'Kids Zone' was embraced to provide a hang-out zone for players and families with tents, music, bean bags, totem tennis, water pistols and other games.

Mount Compass Tennis Club won the best Kids Zone award, receiving $100 worth of product from event sponsors Fleurieu Milk and Villis. Back Valley Tennis Club won the prestigious 'Club Pride Award', with 80 per cent of its junior members in Saturday's event.
