Hassan Hamden, 10, showed outstanding strokes and athleticism to win the singles and doubles tournament at our October Tennis Camp at Coolabah Street Beverly Hills. Hassan we tip to follow reach high state level over the next 2 years when he competes in the 12 & under circuit.
Hassan is the son of Talal and Jay Hamden who reside in Georges Hall in the Bankstown district. Hassan has attended Tennis Blast for 3 years now. The reason why his development has been solid and smooth, is that mum Jay being a school teacher has been capable of being extremely patient, understanding and good humoured.
Believe it or not, these qualities are the most important for a future elite Tennis player’s parent.
Sometimes certain vital “ingredients” in the Tennis player recipe are missing, so the progression of the player must slow until these factors fit into place. Jay and Talal have been rewarded for their belief, loyalty and willingness to trust in our junior programme at Tennis Blast. We promise that the next 3 years with Hassan soon playing metropolitan and state level tournaments will be exciting for both the Hamden’s and Tennis Blast.
Hassan is of Lebanese and Chinese descent, a good hearted child, very good humoured, a good sport, loves Tennis and very athletic in all areas.
Angelina Dordevic, 14, who is now no. 2 in Australia, will soon return from Europe after representing Australia. Mum Zana said the standard of the girls in Europe is extremely high and it’s hard to win matches, but we said to her, that “they must hang on, keep trying, and linking up with David Bailey in the US for her next tour could be a good change of scenery.”
Zana agreed, and we are proud to say that she said she believes in Tennis Blast!
