Bourton Vale Tennis Club

Junior tennis at Bourton Vale Tennis Club has been on a break over the summer holidays but we shall be back again from September 5th for Junior Club Nights on every Thursday from 6-7pm until the clocks go back, or until it gets too dark to play! Happening on Thursdays from 6:30 – 7:30pm (on the second court) is cardio tennis for adults. This is a great way to get fit, keep in shape, hit lots of tennis shots, and have a bit of a social. First session on Thursday 5th September is FREE! Why not come along and have a go? No need to be a member. Great for complete beginners, seasoned pros, or anybody just wanting to stay in shape. Trust me, it’s a good workout! 

Coaching sessions for kids start back again too from the first week in September with professional coach Jams Hilltout. Please check website at www.bourtontennisclub.org or contact James on 07946397186 for more information if interested in getting your children into tennis. Children and adults welcome to start anytime!

See you on court!

What a day of tennis and sport on Sunday 14th July. No doubt this day will go down in history as the day of Bourton Vale Lawn Tennis Club’s 2019 Junior Club Championship. We didn’t quite have the crowds of Wimbledon, Lords, or Silverstone, but nonetheless, the level of sportsmanship and quality of play were second to none. Well done to all the juniors who played, and in such good spirit. Congratulations go to William Souch for winning all 6 matches and becoming this year’s Junior Club Champ!

Junior Club Nights have been really well attended. It’s good to see so many children taking advantage of the wonderful courts we have here in Bourton. Incredible to think that children can effectively play tennis everyday of the year for an annual membership fee of just £20! The school summer holidays are nearly upon us so junior club nights will be suspended until the new school term in September. Junior members are of course welcome to use the courts during the summer when available.

Bourton Tennis Club welcomes new members, both junior and adult, at any time. If you’ve played before and want to get back into tennis, or you are a complete novice, or simply want to get your children involved, please get in touch, we’d love to hear from you! Please visit our website at www.bourtontennisclub.org for more information.

See you on court!

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!

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!
