Newspaper extract – The Avenue Tennis Club are pleased to confirm that the junior Friday night, tennis themed fun session, Vinny’s Minis, which has run for many years with coach Vinny Duddy returned to the club for the first time since lock down and was really well received by the juniors attending. Vinny said, Vinny’s Minis started in 2013 when then coach James Tucket was looking to encourage parents down to the Friday night adults coaching sessions by providing them with somewhere to safely leave their kids from 4 to 9 years old; this actually kick started my tennis coaching interest and career. He said, it was really great to be back on court doing this as it’s a session that is free to the junior members and with junior membership being £30 per year it works out at less than a £1 a session. Vinny said the night only went really well thanks to the assistance he received from promising juniors, Isla Jones, Thomas Greenwood and Will, all students at King Alfreds. The session runs from 6 till 7 on Friday nights, weather permitting and is open to all juniors from 4 till under 9 years old. If parents would like to join in there is a coaching session or you can hire a court and equipment to have a game on Friday evenings; contact Barry at the club for more details on Friday night hiring or coaching.
The tennis club has a month’s free membership offer available for anyone who wants to give tennis a go and wants to get an insight into the club before joining – please contact Barry at the club 01278 782758 or 07749 878581 for details.
