Hello everyone. So we find ourselves at home for the forseeable future and unable to get out on the tennis court….sigh!
NLTA have come up with a programme of activities that you may like to try out. You will find them on our facebook page (norfolk tennis) and youtube channel (norfolk tennis).

Thanks to Charlie, we can show you a great way of practising against the wall before attempting the cardboard box challenge!
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.
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.
