Senior Adult coaching programme relaunch
It has been great to see so many members playing and enjoying tennis again.
The Scottish Government have announced a change in the guidance surrounding Adult Coaching provision; and subsequent LTA guidance now confirms that LTA coaches can host adult sessions which means that Brian Knox can run coach led sessions.
The Committee are pleased to report that we have had discussions with Brian and reviewed other elements of the LTA/Scottish Govt guidance and from Tues 15th September, Coach-led Social Tennis Tuesdays will re-start!
With a short turnaround time, autumn nights looming and the necessity for floodlights in the early evening, the sessions will run across front three courts.
It will follow a slightly different format to pre Covid-19 and we are asking members to book a place on their preferred session and numbers will then be limited to a max of 12. There will be two sessions each Tuesday evening. The sessions will run from 18:30 – 19:15 and 19:30 – 20:15 (available to a max of 12 people at each session).
We are looking to coordinate and implement a more formal coaching booking system, for now we would request that anyone wishing to attend on Tuesday 15th sends an email to email@example.com expressing interest and confirming their preferred session.
All participants will be updated of a place (if oversubscribed, we will work out a rotational system to ensure everyone has access).
Brian is also keen to resume Saturday adult coaching; which will run from 19th Sept. 12:30-13:30, £5 per session, payable to Brian on the day, again, this needs to be limited to 12 people so please email to register interest and book a slot.
We hope you will agree that this is an exciting step towards some “normality” but we need to err on the side of caution, and as such we will not be re-opening the clubhouse fully at this time.
For those who wish to take part in coaching please share preferred timeslot by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
