The end of the Spring Term and first half of the Summer Term were played out completely off court. Sam continued to work with children of key-worker families at Marshfield Primary School but the rest of the time was spent at home. Whilst keeping in touch with as many players as possible we have been sending out weekly lessons to try at home. Some of our juniors and adults have been joining in with live online sessions played out from Sam's back garden. Whilst we have had lots of fun with the online challenges and sessions June will see the start of lessons being back on court! We are able to offer individual lessons only so will be fitting in as many players as we can on an individual basis until we the guidelines change.
We have had a good battle with the weather this winter, the wind has certainly kept our footwork sharp and everyone is still smiling. Although it seems a long time since we were playing in our T-shirts the warmer weather is not too far away.
Over the autumn/winter period Biddestone Tennis Club has resurfaced three of its courts and added another set of floodlights. The fourth court just needs to be painted when the weather allows and the club will look fantastic.
Marshfield Tennis Club have also been busy, adding a hitting wall which has been very popular and the new ball machine has been well used. With all the floodlight bulbs replaced and the courts cleaned to an amazing standard tennis in the Spring and Summer is going to be great!!
We have Tennis for Kids courses planned for the summer term. This hugely successful national initiative has been very popular for us. Courses, for children aged 4-11 who are new to tennis, will offer 6 lessons, a t-shirt, racket and balls for just £25 plus p+p.
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 Spring 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
