Bourton Vale Tennis Club

Last month on 19th May saw junior tennis players at Bourton Vale Tennis Club compete in the first club competition of the year in the Junior Opening Tournament. For many it was their very first tennis competition and so a big well done to everyone who took part. The competition was won by William Souch (aged 8) and everyone got a prize for taking part. Well done!

The next junior competition will be the Junior Club Championship on 14th July, a chance for each player to compete in singles format to win the trophy!

Junior Club Nights from 6pm to 7.30pm on Thursdays are proving to be very popular. This is a great opportunity for juniors to practice and generally just have some fun on court. Adults can also get fit at the Cardio Tennis sessions taking place on the other court from 6:30pm to 7:30pm on Thursdays, so why not join in while the children are playing tennis? Non-members welcome (£9 per session).

Anyone interested in taking up tennis is very welcome at Bourton where we have a growing number of talented players. I am happy to report that one of our promising players, William Souch, not only won the Bourton junior competition last month but also took part in his first Mini Tennis Competition in Painswick on June 9th. Winning 3 out of 5 matches put William in 3rd place overall. Well done William!

Remember, junior membership at Bourton Tennis Club is only £20 a year! (Just £10 if signed up to junior coaching!!) Please visit www.bourtontennisclub.org for more information.

See you on court!

Bourton Vale Tennis Club

The tennis season is well underway at Bourton Vale Lawn Tennis Club and with the repainting carried out in early May both courts are looking especially good!

Junior Club Nights have now begun each week (weather permitting!) from 6pm to 7.30pm on Thursdays. This is a great opportunity for junior members aged 8 and over to play freely against each other and practice many of the strokes and techniques developed during coaching. Taking place on the other court from 6:30pm to 7:30pm on Thursday is Cardio Tennis, a fun, sociable adult group fitness class where members and non-members alike can get fit- no tennis skills required! Why not join in while the children are playing tennis?

Juniors of all ages are also in full swing with their tennis lessons under the guidance of LTA Senior Performance coach James Hilltout.  Junior coaching takes place on Mondays, Tuesdays and Thursdays during term time.

Anyone interested in taking up tennis is very welcome at Bourton where we have a growing number of talented players! There are many benefits to getting kids on court at a young age.  Tennis helps to improve hand-eye coordination, speed, flexibility, agility and balance as well as a sense of etiquette, sportsmanship and a healthy dose of competitiveness!

Now is a great time to get involved. Unlike other sports or clubs where costs can spiral out of control Junior membership at Bourton Tennis Club is incredibly only £20 a year! (Just £10 if signed up to junior coaching!!) Please visit the website at www.bourtontennisclub.org for more information.

See you on court!
