Tennis Coaching, ClubSpark
What a few weeks/months it has been! I hope that this email finds you all well during these uncertain times. Over the last couple of weeks we gave been preparing information for the relaunch of our full coaching programme and ensuring this can be done so in accordance to all the current safety measures from the Government and the LTA. Safety of players, parents and coaches will always be at the forefront of our plans.
I am delighted to say that arrangements are now in place and that our weekly sessions will be restarting W/C September 7th (after a 10 month hiatus!). Please see below for full information-
As a coaching programme we will continue to follow this guidance as it potentially changes and develops. An overview of what we are currently implementing can be seen on our website. If anything changes this will be communicated to all attendees before the first session in September. If you require any further information on this please do not hesitate to get in touch.

Tennis Leader Course
On Sunday 6th September Josh (our Tennis Director) will be running a Tennis Leader Course. This is open to any juniors aged 12-17 and is a fantastic chance to get involved in Tennis, learn vital skills and further down the line, earn some money from assisting. We run an extensive Tennis Leader Annual programme and intend to keep this going as our Tennis Leaders are a huge asset to the club and the coaching programme.
This course is not aimed specifically at those looking to pursue a career in Tennis, or those who play a high level. It is aimed at those looking to get involved in their local club, improve confidence and potentially earn some money assisting qualified Tennis Coaches in the future.
From personal experience (I completed this course myself years ago and it inspired me to pursue a career in Tennis) I would highly recommend all those who can to join this course, plus it looks great on future College, University and job applications.
If you would like to book into this course and for full information please follow this link, there are minimum and maximum numbers – https://clubspark.lta.org.uk/AndoverCoaching/Events/Event/5a1da52b-e9d2-4691-ae94-b3bb3e05c92a
Rackets for Sale
We always have spare rackets for anyone that needs. Due to COVID-19 we are having to clean the rackets after each use and keep separate for 48 hours before they can be re-used. We are happy to do this, particularly for people trying out the session or coming for the first time. We do recommend that juniors and adults have their own rackets if booked on to a term of lessons (COVID aside just for continuity of using the same racket!).
We sell rackets of all sizes for all ages using our local sponsor Mantis. We can get 10% off any list price you can see here – https://www.mantis-sport.com/tennis/tennis-rackets/entry-junior-players.html
If you wanted to order any rackets let us know and we can sort that for you
Jodie looks forward to seeing you all in September. Thank you for your support during this time
