Junior Tennis Initiative 2020

As part of our return to tennis the Junior Adult Committee is continuing the Teams Initiative launched earlier in the year. For those that have already registered you will be invited to join a WhatsApp group setup by each of the age coordinators below. For those in the U18s category or those who wish to now join the initiative please follow the links below. It will only take a moment as we only need 3 pieces of information.

What is Teams? 
Teams is a new initiative to encourage greater participation, to coordinate activities amongst similar levels of tennis, to organise friendly matches with other clubs and to provide a channel for members to communicate more effectively. In light of the recent restrictions it will also allow us to organize some internal tournaments once we are allowed do so. It is to encourage all juniors to get the most out of their membership. It is to ensure there is something for everyone.

Who runs Teams? 
Teams is run by the Junior Parents Tennis Committee. We’ve assigned a Junior Coordinator to each age group category. They will be responsible for overseeing all activities for that age group. Here are their details;

In addition, for the U18s the junior captains Andrea Gavin and Yan Vaughan will setup separate WhatsApp groups for boys and girls in the U18 category to help drive and encourage more tennis playing. Melissa will still setup a group for the U18 parents so people can be kept informed of U18 related activity.

Are activities mandatory?

No. By joining a group there is no obligation to play tennis on specific dates or commit to coaching groups.

How many Teams will there be?

Our aim is to have an average of 8 players in each team. Depending on the feedback and response these groups may be bigger as we may expand these out..

What next?

Here are the steps:

1.Everyone who has not already registered please do so to ensure we have the right details. Please click on the link below to register your child (only 3 pieces of information required).

2.For the U10s, U12s and U14s the parents/guardians will be assigned to the appropriate WhatsApp groups.

3.For the U18s your child will be assigned to a junior captain’s team and the parent will be assigned to Melissa’s WhatsApp group.

Once the Teams are setup then we will get going with lots of tennis activities,


Your sincerely,

Greg Duffy
