Junior News

Indoor Centre
Dear parent, please ensure your child(ren) have appropriate indoor tennis shoes to wear as coaching has moved indoors.  The shoes should be designed for tennis, preferably have white soles and/or soles that clearly state they are non-marking and they should not be worn outside the centre.  There are benches in the porch to facilitate the players to change their shoes when they arrive at the centre.  An old pair of sports shoes, that are white soled or non-marking might work for a while but please endeavour to provide proper tennis shoes as these are designed to protect your children's feet while playing.

Also, any child U10 playing in the centre must be supervised by an adult. 

Junior Ladder
Inviting all juniors U12-U18 both league & non league players to participate in the junior challenge ladder. The ladder is updated based on the Junior Club Championships and on Box League match results.  The ladder provides players with a great opportunity to challenge players and improve their all round game. Details, rules and result sheet can be viewed in the blue folder in the office.  If your name is not on the current ladder but you wish to join it, just challenge the last person in your age group and let the Junior Coordinator know the result and your name will be added.
