As the nights begin to get lighter, the weather improves and the new tennis season is right around the corner, our Family Tennis initiatives are set to return to CTC on Friday 13th March! And both our Family Fun Fridays and Family Skills & Fitness session on this night will be special events as we will be using them to raise money for Sport Relief, which falls on the same night! Family Tennis For Sport Relief
- Family Fun Fridays (FFF) is CTC’s original initiative to encourage families to get on-court together and enjoy up to 3 hours of tennis every week, between 4pm and 7pm!
Non-members can use our fantastic courts for just 50p per person, while members play for free as part of their membership. We also offer free use of equipment (rackets and balls) and Head Coach Jon is always on hand to give beginners a few pointers or have a chat about how you can more tennis with us.
On Friday 13th March, FFF will be free to all although we would ask all players to make a donation to Sport Relief at our collection point inside the clubhouse or directly to Head Coach Jonathan Morgan.
- And our innovative Family Skills & Fitness (FS&F) session is back for it’s third year, running every Friday at 5:30pm to 6:30pm!
This session is split into two halves – the first concentrates on developing general sporting and tennis specific skills through various activities, while the second consists of Cardio Tennis style drills for you to build up a sweat and burn lots of calories. All activities will have varying levels of difficulty and adaptations to cater for all ages, abilities and experiences. It costs members just £1 each and non-members £2 each.
On Friday 13th March, our Family Skills & Fitness session will be a special Family Team Challenge as we raise funds for Sport Relief. Here you can team up with a family member (whether it’s parent and child, couple, siblings or any other combination within your family) and earn points through a series of FS&F inspired activities and games. There will be certificates for all, prizes for our winners and giveaways during the hour. Again, this will be free although players will be encouraged to make a donation to Sport Relief.
If you enjoy playing tennis with your family so much, we offer a Family Fun Friday Annual Pass as a membership package. This is £10 per individual or £15 per duo and enables free play at Family Fun Fridays as well as the discount on our Family Skills & Fitness session! With this membership, you can also enter the Wimbledon Ticket Ballot via free British Tennis Membership, vote at the AGM and join our committees.
