“Abbey Beck from Berwick, Victoria, was chosen as a 2015 ANZ Tennis Hot Shot of the Year nominee.
The annual ANZ Tennis Hot Shot of the Year competition recognises twelve budding tennis stars from around Australia for their participation, enthusiasm and enjoyment of the game whilst demonstrating sportsmanlike qualities amongst their peers. During 2015, one participant was recognised each month and declared a nominee.
In January this year, Abbey, along with the other 11 nominees from around Australia had a VIP experience at Australian Open, including a behind the scenes tour of the tournament, the chance to watch some of the world’s best on court and the opportunity to rally with Molik on Rod Laver Arena. Abbey and her family enjoyed a week staying at a hotel in the city, and free passes to Rod Laver, amongst many other wonderful experiences.
On Tuesday 24th May 2106 Abbey had the opportunity of having a private tennis lesson with Tennis Australia Hot Shots ambassador Alicia Molik. “
