Voucher Scheme For Tennis Coaches

(30 Mar 2020)

In the meantime stay safe. Some of our members have jobs in the healthcare service and other essential services: We thank you so very much for your vital contribution in the fight against this dreadful virus and wish you well in the difficult days ahead.

This email is also bringing to your attention the precarious position our tennis coaches find themselves in. The Tennis Club and the coaches are most grateful for the manner in which the parent club of Elm Park have approached this situation and the parent Club have confirmed that they will be paying a retainer to Rob Cherry til the end of April in line with the treatment of the staff generally at Elm Park. However the future is uncertain. There will be no Junior Coaching Programme in the summer term, no Easter Camps and no possibility for Private Lessons by the coaches for the foreseeable future. All of these activities generate the principal source of income for the coaches. Tennis Ireland have urged all clubs to look at ways they can support their coaches at this time. This is something the Tennis Club is very much committed to doing.

With this aim in mind, the Tennis Committee are pleased that Rob Cherry and Victoria Gaidau are offering tennis vouchers for individual tennis lessons which can be redeemed at a later date. If unable to avail of the lesson yourself, these vouchers can be given as gifts, even to non members or donated at a later date to Tennis Club as prizes. The coaches have reduced their rates. Rob is charging 50 euros for one lesson and 450 euros for 10 lessons. Victoria is 40 euros per lesson. We would urge all members to strongly support this initiative either by purchasing a voucher yourself or passing on this message to golf members or friends who might be interested in doing so or indeed by doing both of these things.

The vouchers can be purchased directly from the coaches.

When you have purchased a voucher you can text Rob at 086 0715681 or Victoria at 085 1630269 with your email address and once payment has come through, they will email you the voucher.

Rob has also done up some fantastic "Home Tennis Drills" that are updated daily on YouTube. You can view the playlist in the link below. These should be of particular interest to dog lovers as they star Rob's very cute dog.


We do hope you will consider supporting this initiative.

From Sunniva and Brendan, Tennis Captains, and entire Tennis Committee
