DEVILS FACE THUNDER

Canterbury Red Devils will

be hoping home ice can help

turn their fortunes around

are currently at the bottom of

the table after six games and

only one win to their name.

They will host the Dunedin

Thunder in two games this

Falck tests out European clay

• By Gordon Findlater

PROMISING YOUNG tennis

talent Reece Falck is spending

the next eight weeks developing

his game on the clay courts of

Europe.

Falck, 15, is currently in

Amsterdam as part of Tennis

New Zealand’s targeted athlete

programme.

He will compete in two

grade four junior International

Tennis Federation events in the

Netherlands, a grade two event

in Germany, and another event

in Fiji on his way home.

The Shirley Boys’ High

School student is coached by

his father Andrew, who is head

coach at the Burwood Park

club.

Andrew believes the eight

weeks of clay court play will

benefit his son’s game.

“Playing on clay is a great

way for young players to

develop their game and it’s

a surface we don’t have easy

access to here,” said Andrew.

Falck is the only Canterbury

tennis player in the targeted

athlete programme.

He won the 14 and under

national title earlier this year

and represented New Zealand

at the junior Davis Cup in

March.

Two other Canterbury

juniors will also have brief

spells in Europe.

National 16 and under

champion Dylan Heap will

head to Amsterdam for three

weeks of training and also play
