Junior Holiday Tennis Coaching Hi everyone, Here are the details of the junior tennis coaching camps for the Summer holidays at Grafton with coaches John, Gary and Steve. The weeks we are running are: Monday 25th July to Friday 29th July Monday 1st August to 5th August Monday 8th August to Friday 12th August Monday 15th August to Friday 19th August The times are as usual: for ages 6-16, 10am to 12pm and 1pm to 3pm. If staying for the whole day, please bring packed lunch. No chewing gum. Please also remember refillable water bottle, hat, sunscreen etc. Sports clothing please; no jeans as the children need to be able to move freely. Footwear: Tennis shoes or trainers with non-marking soles please Please bring own racquet if you have one, otherwise we have spare mini tennis racquets (we can't guarantee full size racquets). The costs are £10 per session am or pm, or £20 full day. You can pay by cash or cheque on the day (cheques to John Peters) or by PayPal to John (johntennis@virginmedia.com). Please fill in the booking form to book in advance if at all possible here: http://johntennis.moonfruit.com/#/summer-hols/4583489975 We will give first preference to those who have booked and paid in advance. You can either pay in advance directly from a Paypal account or from the following link: http://johntennis.moonfruit.com/#/payments/4566393768 The holiday tennis booking menu is on the right hand side of the page - it allows you to pay in multiples of £10. If you are paying for odd numbers of half days, you may find it easier to pay direct from your own Paypal account. Second preference is for those that have booked online but haven't paid. Please note that the afternoon session is matchplay / points play and may not suit very young children: if in doubt please do call me to discuss or talk to Gary and Steve. If you are unclear on anything, then do drop me a line. Otherwise we hope to see you (and the sunshine!) soon. Best Wishes, John and the Coaching Team.
