At Caunton Tennis Club we have many events throughout the year for adults and juniors. Please have a look at the below to see what we have going on.
Easter Egg Hunt
Around Easter every year we hold a fun Easter egg hunt for all children who are part of the coaching programme. This is always well supported and Is free to all our players. We scatter mini eggs around the Caunton club and have 4 teams trying to find all the eggs as well as some big eggs and the Golden eggs. Its for children 2 years plus and parent can join in.
Christmas Party (2-10 years)
Before Christmas every year we run the kids xmas party at Muskham Hall. This is a 2 hour party with music where parents bring food and we set this up on tables for the children to have half way through. We play lots of fun party games and we always love to see lots of Christmas jumpers or party outfits. Again this is free to all our juniors.

Parent and child tournament
We run a parent and child mini doubles tournament which usually proceeds the Easter egg hunt. This is a fun tournament where an adult family member teams up with a child to make a doubles team.

This is a free event
