Do you want your child to burn off some energy and have a fantastic time this coming Christmas school holidays? For a healthy and challenging alternative, the Totally Tennis Festive 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 four days on Thursday 27th December and from 2nd – 4th January. Sessions can be booked for Morning, Afternoon and Full days and can be booked from 9:00am – 4:00pm.
Each child needs to bring a packed lunch and drinks and be dressed appropriately for the weather – bring warm clothing as it will probably be cold! Those coming for a full day will be supervised during the lunch break and rackets will be provided for those that need one. Appropriate inhaler or medication must be brought along if needed and the coach informed.
For more information and to book, please telephone the office on 01256 368816, e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org or visit the website http://www.totallytennis.co.uk.
