Junior Social Tennis Session

 

A one-hour slot for Junior Social Tennis has been earmarked to give older children on the junior tennis coaching programme an opportunity to practice what they’re learning.

 

The session will be held every Wednesday during the summer term from 5.30pm to 6.30pm, beginning on Wednesday April 27th. This session enables the youngsters to enjoy playing tennis with friends of a similar age, but they are also welcome to stay on beyond 6.30pm and join in the club’s adult social tennis evening.

 

Secondary school-age children who aren’t on this year’s coaching programme are also welcome to come along and join in the fun.
