It has been an amazing summer holidays. The weather has been kind and we had lots of kids involved in our camps at Biddestone Tennis Club, Marshfield Tennis Club and the Community Centre in Marshfield. This year was our first Multi-Sport camp which proved to be very popular. The Autumn Term is now coming up with tennis and netball sessions starting again in early September.
Both Holly and Alex had a great experience at the Wimbledon Finals. Playing some great opponents from around the country they were able to enjoy playing on the grass courts used by many professional players and have a good look around behind the scenes.
After completing Road to Wimbledon competitions for the boys and girls at Marshfield Tennis Club this spring we put forward 4 players to the county finals. It was a double success for our club champions who went on to claim the county titles. They are now entered into the national finals in August and will be competing against county winners from around the country. Good luck Alex and Holly!!
We have our final Tennis for Kids course starting at Biddestone TC this term. This hugely succesful national initiative has been very popular for us with over 90 children enrolled. Courses, for children aged 4-11 who are new to tennis, will offer 6 lessons, a t-shirt, racket and balls for a very cheap price.
The Autumn Term sees the start of the Wiltshire Winter Team Tennis Leagues. We have several junior teams ready to compete. We aim to involve lots of children who will enjoy paying at clubs across the county.
The Autumn term will see opportunities for our juniors to compete in Team Challenges. This is a fun informal competition for those looking to get some experience of playing at different clubs and against new children.
We run tennis camps at both our clubs during the school holidays. For information on dates and prices please email firstname.lastname@example.org
Team Challenge moved on to Biddestone after a succesful first session in Marshfield. 10 players took on the challenge and had a great time trying to be the winning team. Well done everyone!
4 teams of older juniors took part in our summer holiday team challenge. After 3 hours of great tennis we found our winners but everyone deservedly took home a prize.
We have had a great season playing in lots of age groups with one of the strongest representations in the county. A special mention goes to the Biddestone 8&U team and the Marshfield Boys 14&U team who both won their divisions.
A really big turn out for the family cup competition, 33 pairs across our 2 clubs is an amazing achievement. A couple of hours of competition with everyone playing lots of games and our overall winners invited to play at a big competition in London!
We have gone Tennis For Kids crazy this term. We planned to offer 40 places for children who are new to tennis to get involved but have nowfilled 80 spaces!
