Happy 85th Birthday to Terry Stock

Delightful celebrations were held this lunchtime at the tennis club for several members’ birthdays, especially Terry Stock who is 85 this day.

He enjoyed a curry and drink and still went on to play a set in the afternoon.

We wish him many more years happy life on and off the tennis court.

 

Easter training camps

We are running our usual Easter Tennis Camps over the Easter holidays. The details of our camps at Farnham Common and Chalfont St. Peter Tennis Club are attached. The details of our Stoke Poges Tennis Club Camp are below:
All camps include fun based games and exercises, technical coaching, match play, non-tennis games and prizes! Camps are a great way for your children to have fun, meet new friends and improve their confidence while learning a new skill!
For those who have taken the Winter off tennis coaching it may be a good idea to attend a camp to give your child some much needed practice before the Summer term starts as they will need to catch up with the children who have been playing throughout the Winter period!!
Stoke Poges Tennis Club Easter Tennis Camp:
Dates: 3rd – 7th April
Times: 9am-1pm (half-day also an option, either 9am-11am or 11am-1pm)
Weekly Full Camp Cost: £100 members, £110 non-members
Weekly Half-day Cost: £60 members, £70 non-members
Daily Rate: £30
Half-day daily rate: £18
Our first match play tournament for the Spring season is on next Saturday 11th March and is for 9/U players. I will be sending an e-mail out next week regarding this. If you would like your child to play and practice before the Summer this would be a good match play to enter.

An update on Monday coaching for juniors

Good afternoon,
I just want to keep everyone updated – Roman has now moved out of the area and coach Ben Coleman will be taking his place. From Monday 20th February until the end of the term Ben will be coaching the 6:30-7:30pm mini tennis green/yellow ball class (9-13years).
As the weather is now starting to warm up (14 degrees on Monday) please do let me know if you would like your child to continue with tennis lessons. There are 6 weeks left of this term, sessions will run up to Monday 27th March and will obviously continue during the Summer term.
Tennis has many benefits and is a skill for life. Children will have fun, make new friends, increase their confidence and learn something new during the tennis sessions.
I look forward to hearing from you with your plans for this season and whether you would like me to place your child in the class!
Best Regards,
Stephen Wright,
International Tennis Coaching
