Wimbledon News and Reminders

Sponsored Fun Run in Victoria Park this Sunday

Julie is organising a sponsored fun run this Sunday which starts at 10 am. There is no Sunday coaching on so why not come and join us! She is setting off groups at 10 am, 11 am, 12 pm and 1 pm so you are only required for half an hour (maxmimum) at any of those slots and you only have to run or walk ONE mile!!! All money raised goes towards the NSPCC. £5 donation on the day. Ideal for all the family! There are a few babes in buggies and pets coming too! Youngest entrant so far is 2 weeks old. Oldest is ....well come along and find out! There are a few mad folk running 18 - 20 laps of the 1 mile course so if you're training for a marathon and want to take part in a controlled long run with drinks and fuelling stops, sign up for 10 am!

Full details and sign up info can be found here

End of Term 1

Friday 22nd March is the last day of this term's coaching. Term 2 begins on Sunday 14th April. All details for this can be found here. Payment is due on the first week of the block.

Schools News

We invited all the local primary schools in the Cleveden, Hyndland and John Paul cluster to take part in four weeks of free coaching for Primary 4. 8 schools took us up on this offer and we have been running coaching sessions for them at Western, the Firhill stadium and Belcraig Community Centre. The programme has been a great success and a teacher from each school is attending an in-service training course this week that will empower them to deliver tennis in school and earn their school £500 worth of tennis equipment. The project will culminate in an inter school competition in June from which the winning team will go on to a regional competition. To see what schools took part, click here
