The entry fee is £3 for children and £5 for adults, with this covering event costs and any surplus going to our fund for a new storage locker.

Spaces are allocated on a first come first serve basis so book your place now by contacting CTC Head Coach Jonathan Morgan on jonathanmorgan@caerphillytennis.co.uk or 07891 640642. And as always, stay up to date by interacting with the CTC social media channels.

Ystrad Tennis Returns Indoor For Winter 2017!

CTC are excited to announce that our Ystrad Tennis outreach programme will return indoors to Sue Noake Leisure Centre for winter 2017, starting Saturday 30th September!

Mini Red (5-8 years old) 11am – 12pm,
Mini Orange (8-10 years old) and Mini Green (10-12 years old) 12pm – 1pm.
