Irabina Hot Shots Program

Eildon Park Tennis Club recently held a Hot Shots program for Autistic children from Irabina Autism Services.  There were 27 children over the 2 day program which included a visit from Federal MP Alan Tudge and Knox Mayor Darren Pearce.  The program was made possible due to funding and donations from Tennis Victoria.  We aim to continue the program during the September school holidays and into 2018.  Many thanks to the Committee Members who attended, AJ and his coaching team and to all who donated items for the tennis show bags for the children.  The feedback from Irabina is that the children had a very positive experience and to see the joy on their faces was very rewarding.

Irabina Autism Services has presented EPTC with a framed certificate of appreciation which will proudly hang in the clubrooms.
