The Covid pandemic has resulted in changes at Bath University and they are no longer able to support Community tennis programmes. However, we are delighted to confirm that Stephen Marcelle will remain the Frome Tennis Club Coach and that he has ambitious plans for the Frome. He will develop his own Tennis Academy and as of 9th May our coaching programmes will be managed under his control. The existing programme will continue and there will be extra classes including Cardio tennis and Two Bounce tennis. Developing the Junior programme is an important objective, links with schools will be expanded and Stephen is to hold an accredited LTA Youth Match Play Tennis Tournament on Sunday May 16th from 9:00am. It has 10 different Junior categories and is now open and live on the LTA Website.
Look for all the coaching programmes on the Stephen Marcelle Coaching website.

Our Reaching Out Scheme provides free coaching and free club membership for juniors from low-income families and for adopted children and children in foster care. If you are a parent or guardian of a child that qualifies (or is likely to qualify on starting school) for Pupil Premium funding, then you will be eligible for the scheme. Please speak in confidence to Stephen Marcelle and tell him that you child has qualified (or is likely to qualify) fir the scheme. Normally there will be no need to provide any written evidence. Please note that the temporary extension of the scheme to include families where a parent or guardian has been furloughed or made redundant through Covid-19 ended in March 2021.

Half-price club membership is also available for adults from low-income families (see the club web site for details) so you could join as a family at significantly reduced cost.
We hope you will have a look at the courses offered and consider signing up. Please remember that if you or your child is a club member you get reduced rates on coaching. Stephen is looking forward to meeting you.
Please also have a look at club membership. Our packages offer excellent value; as much tennis as you want for only £1.50-£3.00 a week depending on the package you chose.
Adult membership enables children in that household to join for free.
