The 2nd Hong Kong Games –Tennis Elite Athletes' Demonstration and Exchange was held smoothly on Sunday 15 March 2009. This activity which took place on a sunny afternoon attracted more than 80 athletes from the 18 districts who will participate in the tennis competition of the Games. The session started with the introduction and demonstration of tennis techniques by four elite athletes, namely Mr Derek LAM, Mr Ray LAM, Miss Polly LAM and Miss HU Ho-ching, who were led by Mr Eric CHUNG, a veteran coach from the Hong Kong Tennis Association. The techniques included forehands, backhands, volleys over the net, serves, the application of skills in singles and doubles events as well as match strategies. Athletes from the districts then took part in skill drills and doubles matches against the elite athletes at two tennis courts. They had given a good performance in the matches despite the fact that they were finally defeated by the elite athletes.
