During this period where there are no tennis activities at CTC due to the Coronavirus pandemic, we will be posting regular videos to our social media channels (Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, YouTube). These are designed to keep players engaged in the Club, connected with other players and inspired to still pick up a racket and get some practice in, as well as providing some light hearted fun and release for everyone. These videos (daily skills, #TekkersTuesday and #FamilyFunFriday) will compliment our other social media features (Friday Filler and Suggestion Sundays) we have lined up during lockdown.
Update 28/06/2020: Despite reopening tomorrow, we will continue to produce 3 videos each week, following great feedback on them during our recent survey to players. The videos will include a #TekkersTuesday skill challenge, a #FamilyFunFriday game and a daily activity which will be released on Saturdays.
We would love to see you have a go at the various skills, challenges and games we share, so film your attempts and share them online. Make sure you tag our social media channels (@CaerphillyLTC) and use the special hashtags #CTC #Quarantennis. We will be rewarding those who get involved regularly, come up with creative and new twists or bring a smile to our face with spot prizes.
