Please note that the Ladies coaching session that used to take place on Wednesdays has now moved to Tuesdays from 6-7pm. This is because the Wednesday session clashed with club matches and by moving to Tuesdays it will mean we have more courts available for the session. The session is still open to beginners and improvers and new players are always welcome.
On Saturday 3rd July we presented the awards for our Player of the Year and Young Player of the Year. The Player of the Year went to Rob Peters for his fantastic efforts over the year which included organising the installation of our automatic gate and floodlighting system. He works hard as our membership secretary and runs our Hampshire doubles team. He is also a regular player in our Mens B team and Mixed team.
Matthew Urry was presented with the Young Player of the Year. Matthew has been with the club since he was 6. He has played regularly for our juniors teams and has now played for our Mens C team. He is also a Tennis Leader and helps out regularly at our Saturday sessions. The awards were presented by our Club Chairman, Terry Bundey.
In the Half Term holidays our Head Coach ran a Tennis Leaders course for six of our young players. The course consists of 5 modules: Introduction to Tennis, Volunteering at your Tennis Venue, Leading a Practice Session, Helping at your School and Helping at a Competition. The course give the young people the skills to help out at coaching sessions and forms the basis for furthering their roles in the sport. In the last 10 years we have trained 85 Tennis Leaders some of whom have gone on to become professional coaches and all have acquired skills and experience that have benefitted them later in life.
We are delighted to announce the refurbishment of the courts. The courts were resurfaced during lockdown and on Tuesday 25th May they were painted. They can be seen here in use by our 12 & under squad.
The colour of the courts was out to a vote by club members with the purple/green combination narrowly coming out on top.
