Juniors

Junior membership at Cringleford Tennis Club is open to absolutely anyone, regardless of standard. We are delighted to have Katie Brooks LTA level 3 Head Coach running our Junior Coaching Programme. Katie is also available for individual coaching.

Coaching Programme 2020

We have a comprehensive all year round Junior Coaching Programme designed for children of all ages and abilities – whatever the level we will have a session or squad for your child.

Our Mini Tennis Programme caters for children aged 3 – 10 years, with Mini Tennis Red, Orange and Green courses, as well as Mini Tennis tournaments and camps.

There are Junior Coaching courses for children aged 10 – 16 years, including Development and Performance sessions and squads.

The Holiday Camps are for children of all ages and these take place during the school holidays.

We keep the player to coach ratio low, to ensure a high level of quality and to give the children the best opportunity to improve.

Tennis is a wonderful game for any child to learn.
Tennis is a skill for life, it is FUN, sociable and life-enhancing.

I look forward to seeing you on the courts very soon!

Spring Newsletter 2020

This term, the Cringleford Tennis Club Junior Coaching programme has expanded in order to cater for the growing interest and demand for places on our Mini Tennis and Tennis courses.

During this term, participation numbers have increased significantly by 52%.

There are now 5 Mini Tennis Red courses taking place within our coaching programme – 4 of these courses take place after-school on Tuesday’s and Thursday’s at Cringleford Primary School and 1 course takes place after-school on Wednesday’s at the tennis club.

We had a new Mini Tennis Orange course start this term, after-school on Wednesday’s and it is growing and proving very popular.

The Mini Tennis Green course has continued after-school on Friday‘s and all of the children have improved tremendously.
Very well done to Kirti, Oliver, William and Leo.

All of our Mini Tennis players have taken part in the LTA Mini Tennis Rally Awards this term.

Sadly, our term had to finish 2 weeks early, due to Covid-19.
I will be presenting all the children with their certificates and badges, when I next see them.
All of the children have worked incredibly hard this term and I have been delighted with their outstanding progress.

There has also been a huge increase in demand for Junior individual lessons this term – we have some very talented mini tennis players!
It has been an absolute joy, privilege and a pleasure to coach all of the children on our coaching programme this term.

I had organised several Mini Tennis events for the Easter Holidays, including 2 Mini Tennis Red Fun Activities Mornings at Cringleford Primary School.
Within a fortnight of promoting these events, they were fully booked and oversubscribed!
I was also hoping to organise a Mini Tennis Orange and Green Fun Day during the Easter Holidays.
These events have now been cancelled, due to Covid-19.

I have many, many Mini Tennis and Tennis events planned and organised for when we return to tennis again, including:-
* Continuing our weekly Mini Tennis Red, Orange and Green sessions – as soon as we are allowed to do so.
* Toddler Tennis Sessions
* Junior Courses – for children aged 10 – 16 years.
* Mini Tennis Red, Orange and Green Tournaments
* Mini Tennis Red, Orange and Green Camp Days
* Mini Tennis Rally Award Fun Days
* Tennis Camps and Tournaments – for children aged 10 – 16 years.

During the first week of our ‘lockdown’, I have sorted out all the hundreds of tennis balls in my garage and I have ordered some new Mini Tennis balls!
There will be brand new Mini Tennis Red, Orange and Green balls for all our coaching courses, when we are allowed to play again.

For further information about any of the coaching programme, please contact me on email: katietennis@btinternet.com or my mobile: 07759046556.

I have really enjoyed my first term, as Head Coach at Cringleford Tennis Club.
It has been a very busy, challenging and successful term!

I would like to say a huge thank you to Chris and Nicki Mitchell, the Tennis Committee and all of the parents and children for all their support, hard work and commitment this term.

I look forward to seeing you all, as soon as it is safe to play tennis again.

Take care of one another.
