HOME TENNIS TIPS – VERSION 1 – Mon 23rd March

Here are three practise progressions whilst hitting a ball against the wall. Perhaps set yourself the target of 10 consecutive shots before moving onto the next stage.

Stage 1 – Hit over the line

The ball can bounce as many times as you like.

Stage 2 – 1 bounce between the lines

Only allow the ball to bounce once and try and keep your shot between the white lines.

Stage 3 – Hitting harder

Place a white line on the floor. Continue to hit the ball after only one bounce, but swing the racket faster to make the ball rebound past the line.

 

Luckily our neighbours are top draw and always throw wayward balls back!!

Good luck and let us know how you get on or any other ideas of how to keep practising at home.

NORFOLK SCHOOLS JUNIOR FESTIVAL OF TENNIS 2020

NORFOLK SCHOOLS JUNIOR FESTIVAL OF TENNIS 2020

After receiving such an amazing, positive response to our first ever Schools Summer Festival of Tennis, it is with deep regret that we must postpone it for this year. However, I am sure you can appreciate the reason why. We can, however, confirm that because of the brilliant feedback received, our tennis festival will return next year and Norfolk LTA remain totally committed to getting as many new juniors on court as we can, playing our great game of tennis.

We would also like to thank Smith & Pinching for supporting our Festival. It is so gratefully appreciated and we look forward to their continued support next year.

INTER COUNTY MINI RED EVENT 2020

INTER COUNTY MINI RED EVENT 2020

The girls team arrived early and played some fantastic tennis to finish 5th out of 10 counties taking part. Up against some particularly strong teams the girls had good wins over Suffolk and Oxfordshire in the group stages and culminated in a play off for 5th & 6th place with a one point win over Buckinghamshire. The team included Amelia Bednarska, Lucy Mansell, Issy Eves, Jessica Rogers, Letitia Koumi & Isobel Sexton.

In the afternoon the boys were given a tough opening group and found some of their older and stronger opponents from Berkshire & Hertfordshire hard work but good experience. The boys managed to win a tight match against neighbours Suffolk in their play-off match. Well done to Edward Pooley, Oscar Hart, Noah Garner, Arthur Munby, Harry Taylor & James Naylor.

With the combined totals from the Girls and Boys results the Norfolk team finished in joint 5th position.

Well done to all who took part.
