Do you want your child to burn off some energy and have a fantastic time this Christmas holiday? For a healthy and challenging alternative, the Totally Tennis Holiday Tennis Camps are a great way for juniors to improve their skills and fitness while making new friends.
Packed with opportunities to learn and play tennis, activities also include football, rounders and hockey. The scheme has received OFSTED accreditation and the sessions are run by experienced Lawn Tennis Association (LTA) qualified and licensed coaches.
Tennis camps will be running at the indoor centre in the War Memorial Park for two days on Tuesday 29th and Wednesday 30th December Sessions can be booked for Morning, Afternoon and Full days and can be booked from 9am – 3.30pm.
