New for Summer 2012

Summer Mondays and Wednesdays for Tournament Playing Juniors

We will run Monday evening sessions at Western from 4-530 for seven weeks starting from Monday 2/7 (last Monday 13/8). Ian will coach the first two and Julie will do the remaining 5. The sessions are suitable for tournament playing under 12s, under 14s and under 16s. The cost will be £8 per session and they will consist of a mixture of drills and match play. You must register your interest at against the dates you would like to attend. We are initially offering it to children from Western and Thorn Park but we will it open it up further if there are spaces. If you have friends you have met from tournaments who you would like to attend, you can recommend them too.

In conjunction with this, Jordan Gray from Thorn Park is offering a similar session from 4 -7 pm every Wednesday night of the school holidays beginning Wednesday 4/7. The sessions here will cost £15 per week and the last hour will consist of fitness training. Please email Jordan at if you would like to attend any of those sessions as, once again, they are being offered exclusively to players from Western and Thorn Park but the invitation will be extended further once we have heard back from you.

Please register your interest by Friday 29 June with both clubs.

Summer Thursdays

We would like to offer a social match play evening for Reds, Oranges and Greens at Western on the following Thursdays from 330-5:

Thursday 26th July
Thursday 2nd August
Thursday 9th August
Thursday 16th August

The evenings will consist of lots of tennis and a social aspect afterwards for the children and their families. Parents are welcome to join in the sessions too if they would like to play some tennis.

The cost will be £5 per session per child (parents go free) and we are looking for volunteers to help at these sessions. Anyone (parents, older brothers and sisters, grandparents) interested in helping out (with score keeping, putting equipment back, helping with catering etc.), please email in and we will gather you together for a preliminary meeting to discuss how it's going to work.

Once again, if you could register your interest by emailing if you plan to come along to any of these sessions, it would be much appreciated.

who will be playing in the under 12 teams in September/October. Please email if you would like to take part in these sessions.
