Summer Coaching Programme
Our first week got underway after a damp start on Monday morning but luckily the sun shone for the rest of the week. We had 7 different intensive coaching courses running, catering for Under 6s, Mini Red, Mini Orange, Mini Green, Junior Improvers, 14&U Team Players and Adult Beginners with 56 players attending each day. To compliment the coaching sessions we also ran Mini Red, Mini Orange, Mini Green and 18&U Singles Matchplay and an 18&U Doubles Tournament with 61 entrants across the 5 events. It was fantastic to see so many people enjoying tennis at The Weald and we sill have 2 more weeks of similar courses running. There are very limited spaces available but if you are keen to get involved please contact Zoë via reception (01273 844 283) to check availability.
