Back to School!

So let's get back on the tennis court!

Dear <<First Name>>

It was a bit of a wet start but we've had a great summer. Tennis Camps were packed, we ran a hugely successful grade 3 ranking tournament and made lot's of new tennis friends!

Coaching courses and squads start back across all of our venues from Saturday 10th September. We have been working hard over the last couple of weeks to put together an exciting programme for you and implement a new user friendly online coaching booking system.

There is lots happening over the next couple of months so read below to find out about the following:

  • Autumn coaching Programme & New booking system
  • Cowbridge TC court resurfacing
  • Barry & Vale Local Tennis Leagues
  • We're hiring. Join our coaching team.
  • New Seniors ITF Tournament - The Welsh Open
  • The Penarth Open round-up

Coaching & Squads start from 10th September

We are now using the LTA's Clubspark coaching booking system. It is a user friendly system that will make it easy to book your coaching sessions. Members of our clubs no longer need to user a discount code to get the members rates too!

For our squad sessions we are introducing a standing order payment method. Your coach will be contacting you shortly if you are already in a squad session.
