Junior Club Champs Entries Now Open
See Blog entry below this for details of how to enter.
Closing date Tuesday 23rd August so hurry!
The new blocks will begin on Sunday 11th September and run through to Friday 16th December. This will be a 13 week block that will run continuously except for the October week (ie NO COACHING OR CAMP 15th October - 22nd October).
We will as usual have registration sessions for these blocks so that you can sign up your children, pay for the blocks and change times if necessary.
We will also have a range of rackets on sale at these times and we ask that children who do take part regularly in the lessons purchase their own rackets either from us or a local racket shop like PWP on
Dumbarton Road. We loan out rackets for children who are just starting or who are coming on a trial basis but if you have been coming for a block or more, it is advisable to have your own racket.
If it is not possible to attend one of the dates below, please contact us by email and we can register you that way and pass on bank details so that payment can be made online.
Please note the first four dates are for participants already taking part in the programme and the last two for NEW PLAYERS ONLY. This allows us to give priority to the current players and then open up spaces/ new classes for the new people.
1. Monday 29th August 9 - 1030
2. Tuesday 30th August 330 - 430
3. Thursday 1st September 9 - 1030

£85 for a non-member for a 13 week block

Discounts apply for children doing more than one session per week. We will quote you this rate at the registration sessions or via email.
Early morning sessions (7 - 815) will continue on Tuesdays and Wednesdays (a new one beginning on Mondays for
/ Green Tournament players) and we can give you a price for this when we have a better idea of numbers. If you are intending to continue or join the early morning sessions, please email Orange Julie in advance of the registration sessions.
