BENDIGO'S top junior tennis players learnt from some of state's best coaches at a clinic on Sunday.
Former Bendigo junior Kane Dewhurst, who now runs the Vida Tennis Academy in Melbourne, ran the clinic.
Dewhurst has been running sessions at the Bendigo Tennis Complex annually.
Bendigo's professional coach Stephen Storer said it was a successful day, with about 18 youngsters taking part.
"It is important to have that link with Kane (Dewhurst)," he said.
"He is a former pro circuit player, he is a person that can share his experiences with the younger players and can offer unique insights.
"He is a highly respected coach in Victoria and a lot of the coaches that were also involved in the clinic got to learn a few things too."
Coaches David Jonkers and Damien Lafont also shared their knowledge with the tennis young guns.
"They worked on techniques, tactics, some on-court videoing and also a talk on how to mentally approach a match," Storer said.
The Bendigo Tennis Association squad are now in training for the Bendigo Platinum AMT tournament, which will run from August 31 to September 4.
