As part of the club’s on-going commitment to junior development, Hemingfords Tennis Club will again be running an exciting mini tennis programme throughout the summer.
The dates of the sessions will run from April to September and are free to all Tennis Club Junior Members. Dates are listed below together with a registration form and information sheets.
What will the coaching involve?
We aim to provide a program to develop the basic core skills for tennis known as the ABC’s — Agility, Balance, Coordination and Speed. In addition to this, technical and tactical coaching will be provided to develop all court play.
We will follow the LTA Mini-Red, Orange, Green format and also look to provide progressive awards as your child develops. More details on this can be found on the LTA website: http://www.lta.org.uk/LTA-Mini-Tennis/
Up to the age of 11 the balls, rackets and court size are all proportionately defined to allow their games to develop.
If you have any questions at all, please just ask — the coaches and club members are here to help.
How do I register?
The Saturday coaching sessions are free to members and will run through the summer (April — September). You simply need to join and complete a junior registration form.
Membership fees are only £45 per year for Juniors. Parent membership is available which allows a parent to play with a Junior for £20. Full adult and family memberships are also available for a club that covers juniors, family as well as social and competitive tennis for big people!
Junior coaching will be in three blocks of five Saturdays — if any of the sessions are not on for any reason a notice will be put up on the clubhouse as well as an e-mail sent to all parents of registered children giving as much notice as possible.
Please register interest today by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org
