Juniors

We welcome juniors to our club and run a variety of coaching classes for young players and those who wish to take up the sport. Our head coach, Bruce Beadle, runs group coaching sessions for adults on Thursday evenings and juniors on Tuesday and Wednesday afternoons.  He is available for Adult and Junior individual lessons by arrangement. Enquiries regarding coaching should be directed to Bruce in the first instance.

On Friday afternoons we have sessions run by Chris Leonard and in November 2020, we are ran a new programme on Saturday mornings with Ladi Soltes. Hopefully we will be able to do this again sometime soon. 

During the summer we also run Saturday supervised play sessions run by volunteer members and parents. We are always on the lookout for parent volunteers to help with our junior programme, if you wish to do so please drop us a email here. We are currently hopeful we will be able to return to this model sometime this summer.

Hi Guys,

 

We're back, let's move forwards!! 

 

This term starts on 23rd/24th March and will run for 4 weeks with last session on 13th/14th April. Have decided to run through Easter holidays as I don't think anyone will be going away.

 

The classes are a continuation of last year & players returning should rebook into their current class,

 

Tuesdays 

4:45-5:30pm - Green / Yellow level for 10yrs +

 

Wednesdays

4:15-5pm - Red / Orange / Green level for up to 11yrs

 

The difference between the classes is based on age, experience & ability. If you are unsure, I will let you know the most suitable class for your child.

 

The cost for this term is  £26 for members & £30 for non members. You can pay on 1st lesson by cash, cheque (payable to Bruce Beadle) or contact him here for bank details.

 

Could you let me know by email by Friday 19th March if your child would like to play so that I can organise my assistants & plan the classes?

 

Again, we are adhering to LTA & Tennis Scotland guidelines to the return of group tennis classes and the Club has appointed a Covid-19 officer to coordinate these actions. In order to comply with Covid19 guidelines,

 

There will be adequate sanitizers for all players to use before during and after sessions

There will be one way to arrive at courts and another way to leave courts

There will be a register as usual, however there is an extra column where you'll need to confirm each session if the player has any Covid-19 symptoms, been in contact with any Covid-19 cases or travelled internationally 

You'll need to provide your own racquets, I will provide balls

All my equipment will be cleaned or changed between sessions 

The Clubhouse toilet will only be used in Emergency

 

In order to confirm your child's booking & to complete the register I will need the following information for each player emailed to me,

 

Full name

Date of birth

Parent phone number & email address

Emergency contact name & phone number

 

If you have any further questions, please contact me!

 

Thanks --- Bruce (0771-556-1929)
