Mini & Junior 2020 Spring Term Coaching
Sun, 05 Jan 2020 00:00
Dear tennis players and parents,
We hope you had a great Christmas; we are wishing all of you a very Happy New Year.
We are proud to announce that last term we achieved an amazing number of 60+ juniors on a weekly basis which is great for the size of our club.
Our aim is to increase the number of juniors that are playing competitively, at a club, county and national level, to put Romsey Tennis on the tennis map even more.
Last summer we became Hampshire team champions in both 8 & under and 10 & under, which was a real proof of our success. We are aiming to enter junior teams in the Hampshire leagues again this year, and hoping to repeat last year’s results.
This term starts next week (6th of January 2020) and it will be again a 10 week one, same as last term for which we are kindly asking you to confirm your places as soon as possible. Places will be prioritised for the ones who already attended last terms and the available vacancies will be allocated to newcomers; a maximum of 8 spaces are allocated per court to maintain a good standard of coaching. The last day of this term is April the 3rd 2020.
This term tennis will cost £60 for the 1 hour sessions and £90 for the 1½ hour session.
Our growing programme is giving us the opportunity to introduce for the first time a club championship for juniors, all age group included. The aim is to hold the first tournament before the end of March. Another email will be sent shortly with the details.

Tennis Racket Sizes
How big should junior rackets be? We recommend the following sizes:

- 9-10 years: 25”-26”
- 10 years and over: 26”-27”
- Adults and 11 years over 27”
We invite minis, juniors and adults to join as members, and to practice/play tennis outside of lessons. The club offers reduced winter junior and adult membership (through to 31st March 2020). Members (11 and over) are able to opt-in to the Wimbledon ballot (by 14-Feb) with the chance to win tickets for the 2020 Wimbledon Champions. Parents – please note – the club also runs Cardio Tennis sessions which are a great way to combine tennis, fun and a cardio workout.
Thank you for all your support last year and look forward to seeing you next week.
