A message from the Coach - Dave

Hi Everyone

I hope you are looking forward to the summer season.

Just to keep you informed with a coaching update.

We have been going into our local primary school, Townfield, delivering lessons to children from year 1 to year 6.  The plan is to start inviting some of these children to engage with the club on a coaching session between 5 and 6 pm on a Friday.

 

We would also like to deliver an adult training session between 6-7pm. on a Friday. This will be a high intensity session, like a cross between coaching and cardio. The session will have many drills focusing on particular shots where we will hit a high volume and will be great practice for this years matches.

To finish the evening, between 7 and 8, we would like to run a coach led doubles match play.  An American tournament style where each week we may focus on particular tactics or have fun activities such as wooden rackets or fancy dress.

 

Please let me know if you think there would be a place and / or interest in running these sessions or indeed if there is anything else you would like to see. 

In the meantime, Chris & I are available for 1-1 lessons, and you can contact me on the number below or Chris on 07494 857524.

Thanks, Dave

DIARY DATE!!

Weather permitting we hope to have a club social tennis tournament on MAY 18TH - more details to follow but for now reserve the date in your diary!!!!

**********

TEAM AVAILABILITY

In addition to the weekly SPOND availability requests, Caroline is asking for info on future availability.  This doesn't replace SPOND at all but will allow Captains to see where they may have more than usual team shortfalls which may require more planning for than usual.

So please continue to reply to SPOND and help the Captains with their planning by replying to Caroline's request on the Oxton Tennis Membership WhatsApp Group regarding your future availability.

**********

Court Painting!!

Hopefully we get good weather in the run up to the 25th April as if all is well with the weather the court painting should go ahead!!

Team Rankings

These have now been decided for the 2024 season and will be (if not already) uploaded to the results site.

Keeping Up With The Teams!!

Electronic Scoreboard

 

For those not familiar with the "electronic scoreboard" where results are recorded - go to bowlsresults.co.uk and scroll down to near the bottom headed Pools, Skittles etc. Find Wirral Summer Tennis League and click. Like any other interactive website click away and see what the site has to offer. 

To find our teams click on either mens or mixed.

Our teams are: Mens in division 2. Mixed 1 in division 3. Mixed 2 in division 5. From there you can find results, fixtures, tables etc. 

Click on the team name and it takes you to a simple list of team fixtures instead of scrolling through the main list. 

An easy way to keep in touch!!

**********

Play your way to Wimbledon!!!!

May 4th - 10am start for those who have entered

  Supporters welcome

**********

As the clocks go forward on Sunday we can expect lighter evenings.  So with good weather expected we start with match practice on 2nd April.  Continuing  the next Tuesday and Thursday evenings until matches begin.  6pm start.
