2020 New Year Programme

Everyone here at All Set Tennis hoped you had a fantastic Christmas break. Hopefully Santa got you some new Tennis gear to try out in our 2020 New Year Coaching programme. We would love you to show us the new rackets and shoes, and keep improving your Tennis skills.

 

Thank you for your Feedback

We have also apreciated some really valuable feedback from parents over the last few months, and we have taken these points into consideration. Therefore, we have now decided to split coaching sessions into 'Development' & 'Performance' sessions. This will allow for players of similar ability to be playing in the same session, and it will reduce the number of players in one class, giving us the best chance of delivering our quality coaching for all of the children.  

**The sessions times during the week have not changed, but spaces for these classes will be more limited than in our previous programmes, so please signup early to gain your spot. Please email us if you are unsure which category your child would be in, we will be happy to help.** 

 

Development & Performance

Below is a little explanation of the prerequisite of development and performance players. 

Development players: 

A Player who is inexperienced in playing Tennis, or on the particular ball colour they have progressed onto (e.g. transitioning onto Mini Orange from Mini Red). The player may not be able to demonstrate knowledge/understanding of tennis shots or tactics.  A development player could simply play for fun or use this stage to springboard onto the performance stage of their chosen ball colour. 

Performance players: 

Performance players are those who have developed and mastered skills learnt in the development stage. The performance player is required to  have spent at least two blocks on the development stage before transitioning onto the performance stage (e.g two blocks on Mini Orange development before transitioning onto Mini Orange Perfrormance).  A performance player should be able to demonstrate understanding of all tennis shots, and have some tactical awarenesses as to why they would play a certain shot. The performance player should be able, but not obliged, to play in competitions at local level.  At this stage, the performance player must be aiming to progress onto the next ball colour. 

 

With this new structure in place, our Junior Tennis Programme will be split into 8 Categories.


  • Mini Tots (3-5 years old) - Currently not running because of the cold weather, will return in the Spring.
  • Mini Red Development  (5-8 years old)
  • Mini Red Performance  (5-8 years old)
  • Mini Orange Development (8-9 years old)
  • Mini Orange Performance (8-9 years old)
  • Mini Green Development (around 10 years old) - Currently not running due to insufficent players for this group
  • Mini Green Performance (around 10 years old)
  • Yellow Ball Junior (11 years +) - Not currently split into development and performance categories, but it will be soon.

     

The Schedule for the 2020 New Year programme at Lomond Park Tennis Club is as followes:

27th January - 27th February (5 weeks) 

** Note that this is a short block (5 weeks) as Lomond Park Tennis Club are getting their courts resurfaced in early March. Therefore, we may need to change venues for a few weeks, and we are in the process of looking for a suitable home for this time**
