Thanks to all the children for making such a great effort during the lessons and to the parents who bring them back and forth and help with the teams. We wish you a fantastic summer holiday. (If you haven't yet paid for the block, please email email@example.com for the bank details.)

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 minitennis@glasgowwestern.
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 firstname.lastname@example.org
Please register your interest by Friday 29 June with both clubs.
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 minitennis@
