This January saw Novak Djokovic winning his 7th Australian Open in a straight sets victory over Rafael Nadal and Naomi Osaka moving to number 1 in the world after her victory. A major part of the grand slam running smoothly are the 360 ball boys and girls that lend their skills and time to the event as ball kids.
The ballkids team included a significant number of Vida students from a range of clubs between the age of 12 to 16. To be selected for such a significant worldwide sporting event out of the hundreds who tried out is a monumental achievement and the Vida family would like to congratulate all of these boys and girls on their efforts.
A very special mention must go to MCC Glen Iris Valley’s Ella Wallace who has been a part of Vida’s coaching program since she the age of six and has just completed her fourth year as a ball girl. This year at the age of 15, Ella was awarded runner up Top Gun out of all girls at the open. This incredible achievement has granted Ella the incredible opportunity to travel to Beijing and ballgirl at the China Open for ten days. The trip overseas in late September is a much deserved reward for all of Ella’s hard work and we at Vida are all extremely proud of her efforts.
