Sidmouth Tennis Club's coach Sue Wiltshire is aiming to create a pool of junior players to compete in the East Devon League, the Aegon League (formerly the National Club League) and the junior 'Road to Wimbledon' competition. The entry deadlines are in January and February so anyone interested should contact Sue as soon as possible. This is following the huge success of the junior coaching sessions which started last year. Sue has been delighted with the enthusiasm of the players during the recent spell of challenging weather. Winners of the Christmas Team Tennis Slam were Owen Lane, Joe Gosse, Sam Marriott and Georgia. It is now a club requirement that any players receiving coaching must be members of the tennis club (current pro rata rate is £5, Jan-April 1, 2009, for junior members). It also costs nothing to become a British Tennis Member if you are a member of an affiliated club. Forms are available in the clubhouse. Sue is also planning half term holiday coaching and players are looking forward to the junior social evening on February 6, when all awards for last season will be presented. A new five week junior coaching course has just started. If you are interested in joining please contact Sue at Sidmouth Tennis Club as soon as possible.
