Matchplay Sundays
WOODEND TENNIS SECTION – SUMMER MATCHPLAY SUNDAYS

** Due To Popular Demand, Now Continues Sundays Thru 21st September! **

3.45 pmTots (4-5 years)
4.00 pmRed (6-8 years)
4.30 pmOrange (8-9 years)
5.00 pmGreen (9-10 years)



The objective of the Woodend matchplay Sundays is to encourage our juniors to replicate the skills in matchplay from our excellent coaching programme with club coach Chris Chapman and his team. Match play cannot replace coaching but can enhance it by encourage players to practice at our club.

The Tennis committee is keen to support club matchplay for juniors aged 6-10.

Mini tennis juniors are expected to bring their own tennis rackets and have a British tennis number (BTM). Help will be given on the match play Sundays to register with the LTA and receive a BTM number. The BTM number is free for all members and allows entry into the Wimbledon ballot each year. The BTM number will allow the junior player to participate in the LTA mini tennis ratings system and monitor their progress from a initial rating of four to a possible rating of one. The progress through red, orange and green ratings are similar. We have attached web links to learn more about the LTA mini tennis system.

Points to note, junior players need to wear soft-soled tennis shoes/trainers. No outdoor hard soled shoes please. Children should come suitably dressed and sun cream should be applied if the weather is hot and sunny.

We will be offering matchplay Sundays throughout August

There is no cost for this matchplay pilot, but parent helpers are needed. If you can help with scoring and supporting the matchplay please contact any tennis committee member.

Please email the
tennis committee, for attention of Carol, with your child’s Name, Date of Birth, emergency phone number and any relevant medical information. If you have any questions please call one of your committee members on 07753622160.

Thank You
