Caerphilly Tennis Club will be hosting a Family Quiz Night on Saturday 2nd December from 6pm to 9pm for players and their families. The quiz will feature questions for all ages and on various subjects so you can test yourself against our quizmaster plus other teams!
We have spaces for 12 teams to enter, with each team consisting of 4-6 players. If you can’t get 4-6 people together to make a complete team then join forces with other players/families or let us find you a team on the night! There will be a prize for our winning quiz team as well as a raffle also taking place during the evening. 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 email@example.com or 07891 640642. And as always, stay up to date by interacting with the CTC social media channels.
– We will be hosting a Junior Halloween Party on Saturday 28th October from 5pm to 7pm. The spooktacular evening will be our 4th and final Benenden Tennis festival of 2017, as supported by the LTA with a special event pack. Open to all Junior players (5-18 years old), there will be lots of tennis action, some Halloween games and food! Fancy dress is optional, but there will be a prize for best costume. We are asking players and their parents to donate 6 themed cupcakes, again with the best entry winning a prize. These will be served alongside hot dogs and sweets for all attendees. Event fee: CTC members £4, non-members £6. If you would like to attend, please inform Head Coach Jon before Friday 27th October so we know how many to cater for in terms of food and activities.

Running from 10am to 3pm, they are a perfect blend of tennis coaching, games and matchplay as well as other sports/activities for 6 to 14 year olds. Players should dress appropriately for the weather and must bring food and drink for the day. We have a small tuck shop for treats too.
Price per camp: CTC members £7, non-members £9. Payment via cash or cheque (made payable to Caerphilly Tennis Club).

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! Running weekly until 16th December, our Mini Tennis sessions will allow those who played at the park through the summer to continue and also provide an opportunity for new players to try tennis during the winter.
As is now customary for our winter programme, the sessions will be as follows:
Mini Red (5-8 years old) 11am – 12pm,
Mini Orange (8-10 years old) and Mini Green (10-12 years old) 12pm – 1pm.
We have again secured funding for the hall hire meaning sessions will remain just £2 per player. We provide all equipment (rackets, balls and nets) but encourage players to dress appropriately and to bring a drink.
Please contact our Head Coach Jonathan Morgan on 07891 640642 or email email@example.com before attending to ensure we have spaces in the session. And make sure you connect with the CTC social media platforms – Twitter, Facebook plus Instagram to stay up to date with the latest #YstradTennis news.
