DESPITE last weekend's stormy weather, it was a busy couple of days for young sportspeople in Sorrento.

Aspiring young tennis players were able to get up close to the Hopman Cup trophy when it visited Sorrento Tennis Club on Saturday as part of the club’s open day and a city-wide tour ahead of the January event.

On Sunday, children at Sorrento Surf Lifesaving Club braved the conditions and took to the ocean for the start of the new season.
