                SPRING TERM 2011
A belated “Welcome Back” to all our Mini Tennis members after the Christmas and
New Year break – it’s great to see so many of you back on the mini tennis court. As
you can see, there are lots of events planned for you over the next few months and
we hope you continue to have lots of fun both on and off the tennis court at Halton.

All parents of Mini Tennis players are invited to an Open Forum for your ideas and feedback,
followed by a talk given by Mike James, Director of Tennis, on helping you help your child get the
best out of their tennis.

We will be holding 2 sessions and they will take place in the Core Strength Gym Studio:-

Saturday 29 January          9.00-9.45am
Monday 31 January            4.40-4.45pm

If you would like to attend, please let Camilla know by email at or by
phone on 0774 8596607

to check where you are on the leader board. The current leaders are Joshua Bright (Red) and

            Starter Mini Red & Mini Orange Matchplays
We have introduced regular “Starter” matchplay practice sessions for our Mini Red & Mini Orange
players who have either not played any matches or have only played a few. The idea is to get you
playing points, learn how to score, and generally have a fun time putting into practice all you learn
at your mini tennis sessions

The first “Starter” Matchplay Practice is on Saturday 12 February from 1pm for Mini Orange and
Sunday 13 February from 2pm for Mini Red. Entry fee £5. To enter please email Camilla on – by Thursday 10 February if possible. I will give you a start time when all
the entries are in.
If you are not sure if you are ready to play a match, give Camilla a ring on 0774 8596607 – or
check with your mini tennis coach. We hope to see lots of you there + your mums and dads. You
do need to be a member of British Tennis – it is free of charge and very easy to do – just go to and click on Membership and follow the instructions.
