04 Jun 2019

Dear All,

Please see details below of a tournament being held this Sunday morning, 9 June for our young players (8 and under) by Malcolm and Tricia Sidwell.   Courts will be busy that day as we also have a home match (ladies 3 vs Swanage) starting at 10.30am.  If you play in a regular 4 on Sunday mornings, you may wish to get down to club earlier or perhaps delay your game till later in the day.  Good luck to all the youngsters in the tournament and to the ladies playing in the match.

8 and Under mini red tournament

Following on from the success of the 8&U (red) mixed matchplay on May 12 we are holding another 8&U (red) mixed matchplay on Sunday June 9. Start time 9.15am. Fee £3 for club members; £4 non club members. Players are 8&U if they are age 8 years and under on 31 August 2019.

Matches will be played with Mini red balls on a small mini red court. Format 1 Mini red match tiebreak to 10 points.

Matchplay is a crucial part of becoming a competent mini tennis player & we would urge all eligible mini tennis players to play in this event. You will play against players of similar ability & those with no or little experience will be helped with what to do. Parents are encouraged to come along & help umpire matches. Again, parents will receive instruction if needed.

Could all those who wish to play email us on m.sidwell@btinternet.com as soon as possible so that we can get an idea of numbers. Please give your date of birth, your rating & British Tennis Membership number if you have them. Finally include a brief description of your standard eg complete beginner, played in outside tournaments etc

With best wishes
