Coach Derek Stenson is commencing his tennis lessons for junior members the week starting 16th January for children aged from 4 to 17 years. The coaching is on Mondays, Tuesdays and Fridays commencing at 4pm. For details of these sessions you may contact him at 0851080013 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Derek is setting up a Midlands tennis circuit where there will be matches for children from under 8 to under 16. He aims to have an event every month at a different club across the midlands. This is an exciting new adventure for midland tennis clubs and an excellent opportunity for our young players to meet and compete against other children.
