Welcome to the June edition of our RTT Newsletter - our monthly newspiece with all the upcoming activities, dates for your diary and more!
This calendar year has been very transitional - arguably the busiest ever for Head Coach Ross - as he has welcomed Wormit and Newport TC as a club partner and established a stronger workforce to increase our activity and engage many more people playing tennis on a weekly basis around Dundee and Noth-East Fife. Last week we broke our 100-player-a-week goal for the vert first time, somethign we are very proud of! We have lots to shout about, please read below to see how you and your family can play tennis this month and beyond!
Coaching team updates
Sean Berthelsen is one of our highly-popular young coaches at RTT and he has working hard alongside his coaching and university studies to enrol and take on his UKCC Level 2 Tennis Assistant course. Needless to say, He's only Gone and SMASHED it at the weekend there and we are now proud to announce that Sean becomes our second Level 2 coach - Well done Sean from the rest of the RTT team!
We next turn our support to Alix, our youngest team member (17 years old) and current Tennis Scotland Person of the year (2018) who is preparing to begin her coaching career next weekend by Beginning her UKCC Level 1 course at Stirling University. Good Luck Alix, we have every faith in you and your abilities!
Finally, due to our ever-increasing demand for tennis provision at our venues, we are holding a workforce information evening on Wednesday 26th June, 6.30pm at Forthill Community Sports Club. Here you will have the chance to explore what opportunities exist with RTT alongside other venues in Dundee on a voluntary and paid basis to get more playing in coaching, competing and schools environments. If you are interested in coming along this event, please register by visiting https://www.eventbrite.com/e/dundee-tennis-workforce-evening-tickets-62433980717
Coaching Programme Updates:
We have recently launched primary school sessions in Newport PS and Forthill PS ahead of the summer Holdiays and the response has been fantastic so far - welcome to all our new families and players from the team.
Unfortunately the weather has beaten us on a couple of occasions in what is supposed to be the "summer block" - not ideal! To all players who have had a session cancelled due to weather, we invite you to attend another session in our programmes to make up for this - please visit https://clubspark.lta.org.uk/RTT/Coaching/Junior to choose. If you are unsure which session to choose, please contact email@example.com where we will help you organise this.
Our Hugely-popular Summer Camps are back and we are more prepared, more excited and with more activities than ever before! Our Camps are full-day or half-day options to suit the needs of the kids and the parents, so if you would like to be part of the most fun summer camp in Town, please visit our Holiday Camps section to book your childs place now*
