Junior Tennis Newsletter 2015




Junior Section 2015




Dear Junior Member, new Junior member (and parents/carers),




Welcome to our newsletter for the coming season and to give you details about membership of the Junior section of Wakefield Tennis Club and Coaching.








Coaching groups will be arranged on the first coaching session on Tuesday 14th April 2015 but come along based on the following guidelines.




1.       4 to 7 year olds                5.15 p.m. to 6 p.m.   (Mini Reds)


2.       8 to 10 year olds           6.15 p.m. to 7.15 p.m.   (Mini Orange)


3.       11 to 16 year olds           7.15 p.m. to 8.15pm p.m.    (Mini Green / Yellow)


We may make adjustments to these groups subsequently.




Coaching runs for 10 weeks plus one week off for Spring Bank Holiday followed by Tournaments, singles and doubles for eight year olds and above.


A membership form is enclosed and we ask that you give us all your contact details so that you can be texted /emailed in case of bad weather cancellation or with information.


 Coaching will continue in light rain.


Our club website has a designated area under Junior coaching where you can find everything enclosed with this letter and more.


We have a shop selling hot and cold drinks as well as sweets.


We are affiliated to the LTA and Juniors can join British Tennis free. We are allocated Wimbledon tickets according to our membership of British Tennis. Junior members who are BT members and aged 9 and over are eligible to enter our Wimbledon Ticket draw provided that they have opted-in via the LTA website. Please see notice board for details, or read the club newsletter 2015 available on this website.


(All information received from you will be for club use only and not passed on to any third parties.)


We look forward to seeing old and new members in the new season.


Unfortunately, Adrian Waite will be unavailable to run junior group coaching this year due to work commitments, but we will have a LTA qualified coach to take his place - details available soon.
