Coaching for Juniors Ages 9yrs to 13yrs

These sessions will be run by Mike Layfield of ML Sports and Fitness. They promise to be fun and informative giving the students an opportunity to improve their tennis and to meet other players.

If you know anyone who might be interested, they should put their names down soon as the courses will be offered to all school students in the area and are expected to be very popular. Mike has previously held these sessions at Richmond School and they have had  a very good attendance.
