Christmas Fun at Totally Tennis

Totally Tennis took part in the now nationwide annual Christmas Jumper Day last Friday in aid of the Save the Children charity.  The money raised from the squad players was doubled by the club and donated to the very worthy cause.
The Christmas themed festivities continued with the Mini Festive Fun Christmas party for the Under 10 mini tennis players.  The party had lots of fun activities including interactive  Christmas pictures made with tennis lines and cones etc, the creations were photographed and the photos shared on Instagram, the most popular photo was of Rudolph which gained  the most likes earning its creator a prize.

Christmas Holiday Tennis Camps 2015

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.

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 or visit the website
