INNELLAN BOWLING AND TENNIS CLUB

Tennis Section


   


Some of the Junior Tennis players and Coaches


The tennis section has a slightly longer season than the bowlers, running from opening day in April until October, or sometimes November each year, depending on the weather. There are two red blaes tennis courts (as used in the French Open). We ask that all players should wear flat-soled shoes as the surface can easily be damaged by shoes with a rough tread. New members, both senior and junior are always welcome as are visitors. Free coaching is available.

Club sessions take place on Wednesday evenings from 7pm and Saturday afternoons from 3pm. Members can make their own arrangements to play at any other times. There is an annual mixed doubles tournament which is open to anyone in the community as well as members of other clubs. This is usually a popular event due to the substantial afternoon tea provided by members. The club championships run throughout the season and culminate in a prize-giving shared with the bowling section in November.

The junior section is open to all children from age 8 and above. Junior members may arrange to play at any time and there is also a dedicated Junior night every Monday (weather permitting). There are two groups: those at primary school come from 5 - 6.30pm and those at secondary school from 6.30 until 8pm. Free coaching is provided and a tuck shop is run on Monday nights. The junior championships are hotly contested and held at the end of the season. Children of primary school age are entitled to free membership if they have a parent who is a member of the club.

Tennis for juniors is on Monday evenings starting at the end of April when coaching will be available - primary school age group (8+) from 5 - 6.30pm and secondary school age group from 6.30 - 8 pm . New junior members are welcome. Why not come along and give it a try - no need to have all the equipment at this stage, we provide all the equipment you will need to get started you just need to bring flat soled shoes. There is also a tuck shop on Monday evenings.

More players, beginners, or experienced, always welcome! Club nights are on Wednesdays from 7 pm.
