Marie Tapscott, Two Wells Tennis Club junior coordinator
School holidays are over and it’s time to get back to junior tennis.
I hope some of you were able to watch the Australian Open last month. Australia’s Casey Dellacqua did so well and will inspire our junior girl players.
Junior tennis started up again with the new school term, with the first matches on Saturday February 1…the season end will be March 8.
This term there is one division one team, two division two teams and only one division three team.
Team training will continue on Thursdays from 5pm, starting week one of this school term.
Beginner coaching is available on training nights, with Diane Meaney, for anyone who is interested, for a gold coin donation to the club.
Junior coaching with Grant Daniel will also resume this term.
The dates are: Friday February 7, Wednesday February 19, Friday March 7.
Each session is 40 minutes in length with groups two and three having a warm up time beforehand. Cost is $8 per child per lesson.
Once again the club is offering an early bird discount for all the lessons at $25 per child if paid in advance.
The last games of the season, on Saturday March 8, will be followed by the club’s presentation day and AGM.
We would like to encourage anyone interested in junior tennis and parents of players to attend this day and consider joining the committee to keep it going strong.
The club aims to promote and develop tennis skills in all school age children while fostering fun, fitness and friendship.
If you have any questions about junior tennis or the coaching clinics, please don’t hesitate to contact Marie Tapscott on 0419 838 929 or Two Wells Tennis Club president, Allan Briscoe on 0418 484 885.
We look forward to seeing you all at junior tennis in 2014.
