Here at Highworth Tennis Club our junior members have their own club session every Saturday morning from 10:00am to 12:00pm.
Recognising the success of the various promotions we have had over the past year, with the welcome arrival of a number of new younger juniors who need supervising, we have asked one of our older junior coaching students, Charlie, to continue to run an 'adhoc' session (with the help of some other juniors). The aim is that this will provide a stepping stone to attending the more structured mini red session run by Andrew Sutherland. There is a nominal cost of £2 per child, to be paid for on arrival on the day.
From April, we are pleased to welcome back Andrew Sutherland as one of Mark's team to coach our Saturday morning mini red session from 10-11 as well as to supervise the 10 - 12 session. Andrew is an LTA Registered coach who has been involved in the coaching program in highworth for the last 6 years. He has also experience working with coaching programmes at other clubs such as Oxstalls tennis centre (Gloucestershires LTA centre). Andrew is well known within the club and has proved popular with the children as well as the adults and it keen to help with the expansion of the club.
Historically the majority of slightly older junior members that come to the Saturday morning sessions have enjoyed just having access to the facilities and organising themselves in combinations of doubles, singles and drills. Three of the courts will therefore remain available to these members, who will continue to enjoy these benefits free as part of their membership.
Highworth Tennis Club use 3 coaches to deliver a coaching programme for our junior members. The coaching programme currently operates on the following days and at the following times. There are additional costs involved if coaching is required. For more information about coaching, please contact our Head Coach Mark Thomas.
Further sessions and times may be available subject to demand.
The coaches are also available to book for individual or group lessons for both our adult and junior members and can be contacted direct to organise this.
