SHE RALLIES ‘LITTLE MISHITS’ COURSE WELL RECIEVED

SHE RALLIES ‘LITTLE MISHITS’ COURSE WELL RECIEVED

She rallies is a Judy Murray led initiative where female ambassadors are trained by Judy to the train other females. With the hope to encourage more girls to try tennis.

On 25th June 10 ladies from all over the county attended Norfolk’s first ‘little miss hits’ Course. This course is aimed to teach females to deliver non technical fun starter tennis sessions to 5-8year old girls.

We had a great mixture of coaches, assistants, parents and teachers. The group worked brilliantly together and understood the concept of the course very quickly. For details of future courses please contact Kim Burgess on ksburgess17@icloud.com

 

CORPORATE DAY RAISES FUNDS FOR SCHOOLS TENNIS

CORPORATE DAY RAISES FUNDS FOR SCHOOLS TENNIS

Cromer Tennis Club recently hosted a corporate tennis event for Norfolk Tennis. 8 teams each consisting of 4 players enjoyed a sunny, although rather chilly afternoon on the beautiful grass courts. Teams were made up of local business people and senior Norfolk players. Delicious cakes and tea followed by an evening bar-b-que were provided by the club. The event was won by the ‘Monday Nighters’, a team made up from a group of eight players that have played together for many years!

The event raised in excess of £2000 towards the Norfolk Tennis Schools project. Stuart Silvester, Norfolk Tennis Schools Co-ordinator said ‘We are extremely grateful to participants and also the sponsors, Norfolk Homes, Icarus Hines the butcher and Barclays Bank for supporting this event. Cromer Tennis Club were also generous with their time and contributions in making the afternoon such a success. The money will allow us to expand the thriving schools programme in to new areas of the County’.
