CTC have again teamed up with the LTA and their partners Benenden in 2017 to offer four tennis festivals in 2017! Having run successful events last year, which led to the Club making the shortlist in the inaugural Benenden Tennis Venue of the Year awards, we hope to continue this success and grow them further this year.
Our first festival will celebrate the first grand slam of the year, the Australian Open, and take place on Saturday 28th January between 3pm and 4:30pm. It is open to all Junior players, with a small entry fee of members £2 and non-members £3.
We have received our goodie pack from the LTA which includes prizes (such as bags, sunglasses, medals and boomerangs) plus giveaways (like wristbands, grips and stickers) for players to take away with them, as well as a few extras to give the event an Aussie feel. This is intended to be a fun filled afternoon of tennis to introduce more players to recreational matchplay, something Head Coach Jon is looking to expand as we head to the new season. The LTA with Benenden UK are also running a social media photo competition for Clubs and players to enter and win a £100 tennis.net voucher! More information and full terms and conditions available here.
If you would like to take part in the CTC Aussie Open event, then please contact Head Coach Jon on 07891 640642 or firstname.lastname@example.org no later than 11am on Friday 27th January 2017.
