As competitive players ourselves we know that tennis is most enjoyable during competition. It is where we figure out what works & what doesn't. With this in mind we have created these additional sessions to enable Junior & Adult players to bring the skills & techniques from their classes into a friendly competitive environment & test them against each other in competitive drills, games & practice matches.
Sessions take place at the SOUTHEND LEISURE & TENNIS CENTRE.
Sessions take place every Sunday for the first 6 weeks of each school half-term.
The BRONZE Matchplay Club runs from 2 - 3:30pm
The SILVER Matchplay Club runs from 3:30 - 5pm
The GOLD Matchplay Club runs from 5 - 7:00pm
Pay 'n' Play option so players can attend on an adhoc basis if they wish.
Opportunity to represent the academy in the AEGON Team Tennis Cup.
CLUB TOURNAMENT during each half-term/end-of-term school break.
Throughout each 6 week Season the BRONZE, SILVER and GOLD players compete against each other player in their particular CLUB in a mixture of point earning drills, games, mini-matches and Fast-Four sets. A cumulative score will be kept for each player & at the close of the final 6th week the highest scoring player will be awarded the WINNERS TROPHY. The winners name will then be engraved on the trophy along with the season details and they will be able to keep the trophy to show it off until the end of the subsequent season at which point it must be returned ready to be awarded to the new winner!
