Tennis Coaching Courses Start Monday 9th January

Courses start back this coming Monday, If you have not enrolled on an LSTC tennis course before then we welcome you and hope you really enjoy it.  Please head straight on court at your lesson start time if you know where to go, if not, please go to reception and they will show you which court to head for to meet your coach.

Week 1 Parent Introduction (on court)

We would like to invite parents on to court at the beginning of the first lesson of this term to tell you about the term ahead and to explain the importance of a British Tennis Membership.

As a player taking coaching at LSTC an important part of their learning is to play friendly but competitive matches in your squads.

We like to reward you for competing, by uploading your results onto your LTA profile.  Which means you can track your progress by seeing your rating improve as you gain experience.

To do this we need to know your LTA British Tennis Membership Number.  

If you have a British Tennis Membership already please can you give this number to your coach so they can write it down.

If you do not have a membership, we can sign you up, just put a signature on the form which your coach will have, and we will do the rest. (as long as your details at reception are up to date).

you can see more information on BTM and the offers you receive, including Wimbledon ticket ballot entry! here:

Xmas Matchplay Events Huge Success

Well done to everyone who competed in our matchplay events at orange, green and yellow over Christmas.

Every Saturday we have opportunities for you to compete in our weekly matchplay sessions (green and yellow on specific dates)

If you would like to book then please speak to Reception.

If you have any Matchplay queries or would like more information on how to enter external events please get in touch with our Competitions Co-ordinator Will Newton.

New Orange Sticker Books

We have a new Orange tennis curriculum starting this January to accompany the new red scheme from last term. All orange players on courses will get their new sticker books within the first couple of weeks of term. The coaches look forward to teaching you new skills and helping you to get better quicker!

Earn your stickers for completing tasks in PERSON, ATHLETE and PLAYER skills.
If all goes well we hope for Green to be ready for Easter.

Winter Weather and Lesson Cancellations

Outdoor courses will always run in all weathers so please dress for the conditions.  Sessions will only be cancelled in extreme circumstances and we will let you know via phone if this ever happens. However, it is very rare as we can sometimes move groups indoors or find alternative teaching opportunities.

Lost Property

We will be running a monthly rolling lost property collection so please check if you think you have lost anything or it will be given to charity.
