JU­NIOR TEN­NIS

The Cobram Courier - - SPORT -

Co­bram Lawn Ten­nis Club is pre­par­ing for an ex­cit­ing sea­son with all ages and abil­i­ties catered for.

Ju­nior play­ers will once again have the op­por­tu­nity to learn the game and hone their skills through com­pe­ti­tion and coach­ing.

The club has wel­comed new club coach, Greg Duns.

Duns is a Level Three High Per­for­mance coach and comes with a long his­tory of coach­ing in­clud­ing 2005 Wim­ble­don dou­bles champion Steven Huss as a ju­nior.

The Satur­day morn­ing com­pe­ti­tion will com­mence on Satur­day, Oc­to­ber 14.

The com­pe­ti­tion is split into two grades, with B-grade in­tro­duc­ing those chil­dren who are able to serve and hit a ball but yet to learn the game.

A-grade is aimed at pro­fi­cient play­ers gen­er­ally aged be­tween 12 and 16.

Chil­dren are placed in teams ac­cord­ing to abil­ity and ex­pe­ri­ence and all play­ers must be reg­is­tered prior to Oc­to­ber 7 to be placed in a team.

Regis­tra­tions will take place be­tween 5 pm and 6 pm on Mon­day, Septem­ber 18 and Tues­day, Septem­ber 19 at the Co­bram Lawn Ten­nis clu­b­rooms.

For more in­for­ma­tion re­gard­ing coach­ing and com­pe­ti­tion, email cd­jta@ya­hoo.com or Face­book Co­bram Lawn Ten­nis Club.
