Freyberg’s Annual Junior Tennis championships had a nice new foundation. The first major event since the brightly coloured Turf was installed, students enjoyed the comfort and safety of six tiger-turfed-tennis-courts. The state of the art surface provided students with clearly coloured courts with a soft rubber landing for falls on the multi-sport area.
