Adult Coaching Newsletter April 2020

I just wanted to keep you updated on the adult coaching programme at Cringleford Tennis Club for this summer and autumn.

Adults Improvers Course
Our Adults Improvers Course started at the beginning of last September and the sessions have taken place every week for the past 7 months, in all sorts of weather!

We have covered a range of topics including volleying technique, doubles tactics and court awareness, serve and return of serve, groundstroke consistency drills, overheads, control and concentration drills, doubles match play and lots, lots more.

It has been an absolute pleasure coaching this group of adults. It would be wonderful to coach this lovely group on a warm, summer’s evening – we have played in rather a lot of sessions during the winter, in very chilly and damp conditions!

I very much look forward to continuing with these sessions, as soon as the restrictions are lifted and we can play again.
Beginners Course and Ladies Team Training
In April, we were just about to start a Beginners Course on a Monday evening at the club, when Covid-19 entered all our lives.

We also had planned some Ladies Team Training sessions in March and April which again were sadly cancelled, due to Covid-19.

All of these sessions will start again, as soon as the restrictions are lifted.

Ladies Mornings
Our Ladies Mornings on Friday’s with Anna continue to be very popular and very well attended. Both Anna and I look forward to these sessions continuing, as soon as we are allowed back on court again.

Autumn 2020
During the autumn and winter months, I would like to also organise some doubles drills sessions, morning group coaching sessions and match play evenings, as well as continuing with our Beginners and Improvers Courses, Team Training and Ladies Mornings sessions.

It is going to be a very busy autumn on the courts at Cringleford!

Winter Team News
Congratulations to our A Team, who have won Division 2 in the Norwich Winter Tennis League this season. They have been promoted to Division 1!

Our B Team were runners-up in Division 4 and they have been promoted to Division 3 for next winter. Our C Team came 4th in Division 5.
It has been an excellent winter season for all our teams. Well done and congratulations to all the Captains and their teams!

There will be opportunities for adult beginners, regular social tennis and competitions, as well as league teams for those wanting to represent the club in the forthcoming months ahead.

It truly is a club for all and I look forward to seeing you all on court, as much as possible, when the Covid-19 restrictions are lifted, hopefully sometime over the summer.

Just beyond the horizon, that we can’t quite see, is the sunrise, a new dawn beginning with it the new closeness of this time and a new appreciation of the privilege we had, and will have again.

Take care, stay safe and keep well.

Katie
Head Coach
