Junior Multi-Sport Camps, Summer 2023

Morpeth Tennis Club has teamed up with CDL Sport this summer to deliver a set of multi-sport day camps at Morpeth Cricket, Hockey and Tennis Club (MCHTC) for children aged 5 to 13.  As well as covering tennis, these camps dip into hockey, cricket, football, rugby and many more sports, with the overall aim being to give children a chance to sample a range of sports while having a lot of fun.

A typical day at the camp see the action begin at 9.30am and run through until 3.30pm, with the activities on offer chosen to improve speed, agility and quickness in order to increate the overall skill level of the participants.

John Robertson, an experienced tennis coach with a PE background, is one of four highly qualified coaches delivering these camps, with other coaches coming from the cricket and hockey sections  At the three-day camp that ran from 16th to 18th August, over 50 children attended each day of the course.  At £25 per day for the full three-day camp (or £30 per individual day), this is good value for money when the range of sports and the amount of enjoyment the kids get out of it is taken on board.

Every consideration is made to make the camps varied and enjoyable, with the activities changing regularly so that boredom never sets in and less obviously sporty exercises being thrown in, such as dancing.  And, as John commented, observing the childrens' skill levels improve as the camp progressed made coaching a pleasure.

Callum Lawn, the founder of CDL Sport, commented that "It has been excellent to utilise the fantastic facilities at MCHTC.  We have had lots of fun and engaged the kids with different sports/activities.  Many of the children tried a sport for the first time and are eager to take up that sport up.  The CDL team are looking forward to another three day camp on the 30th August."

All bookings for junior camps can be done on the CDL website.
