Welcome to the 2014 Season starting on Wednesday 7th May

 

Junior evening is on Wednesdays, you can play after school on any other day of the week too, but you only have priority over adult players on Wednesdays.

Molly is returning this year to supervise junior evenings from 7th May  from 5 – 6.30pm, so do come down and play with your friends, there is no charge for this.  Parents are advised to check that a supervisor is on site before leaving their children at the club.

We are hoping to offer coaching sessions on Mondays between 4 – 5pm.  This will depend on take-up as we need at least four children to make it viable.  We would need a commitment for 6 sessions and will cost £4 for club members and £5 for non-members.

Please do not use the courts to play football or ride bikes on.

As usual if you have any enquiries about tennis or your membership please give me a call.  I hope to welcome back all of last season’s junior members and if possible to increase numbers this season, so please bring along any fiends who may be interested in joining.

Subscriptions

I am happy to report that the subscriptions for junior members for 2014 have remained the same at £30.00 for 10 years and over and £15 for under 10 years. Also if you have a brother/sister and you are paying £30, they may join for £15.00.  Please complete the attached membership application form and return it to me at the above address, together with your cheque made payable to Godstone Tennis Club.

Junior Playing Times

The courts may be used by junior members at the following times:

Mondays        -           any time up to 5.30pm

Tuesdays       -           before 10am and from12pm to 5.30pm

that club matches will take priority on two courts during

some Sunday mornings)

Bank Holidays          As above except for August Bank Holiday Monday

                                    when no play is allowed at the club and all members

                                    are encouraged to participate in Godstone Fete activities.

Junior members get exclusive use of all courts on Wednesday evenings between 4pm and dusk.

We have a website https://sites.google.com/site/godstonetennisclub/home and that will give you more information about the availability of courts at other times when there are senior club matches. These are generally limited to Saturday and Sunday Mornings, Saturday afternoons and some Monday evenings.

Tennis Wear

Club rules ask you to wear appropriate tennis clothing and correct tennis shoes.   These are designed to provide the necessary support to the feet to withstand the specific stresses imposed when playing tennis and also to not damage the court surfaces. Please do not wear coloured football shorts or any jeans or denim clothing. Predominantly white tennis shorts/skirts and tennis shirts and/or a tracksuit of any colour are best.

Use of Club House Facilities

For reasons of security  junior members are not given keys to the pavillion. This means that you will need to bring your own tennis balls. You may use the clubhouse when adult members are present and the clubhouse is unlocked. The courts are padlocked but you will be given the code when you join.

Membership

Please return completed application forms together with subscription cheques for £30.00 payable to Godstone Tennis Club to me at the address above.  We will then advise you of the new padlock code which is changing on 1st May.  This year we are issuing shoe tags to be worn on your trainers to show that you are a club member.

The Last Word

Please remember that most of all tennis is a fun game, and you can enjoy it whatever your standard. If you have any suggestions for making our club better for Juniors then please let me know. 

Have a great 2014 season.
