TENNIS_ball_vectorJUNIOR SCHOOL HOL CLINICSTENNIS_ball_vector

We run school holiday clinics during most holidays. They are a lot of fun and a mixture of technique, games and matches. Fun tournament on the last day with prizes.

We keep all the age groups and abilities in the same time slot, as we find the atmosphere adds to the holiday clinics. Having said that, we will do focused segments within the week working on technique, as well as point play and scoring coaching for those interclub level players. 

Please enquire about toddler sessions. Usually offered a couple of mornings for 1 hr
