CST & The Shrewsbury Club to launch a new tennis partnership
With Wimbledon well into its second week, Shrewsbury Town's Community Sports trust has teamed up with The Shrewsbury Club to launch a new tennis partnership for local youngsters throughout the summer.
A FREE taster session will be held for children, boys and girls, aged between five and 11 at the Power League next to the Greenhous Meadow on Saturday morning.
After this weekend's free taster session, a 10-week course will start the following Saturday, July 13 between 11.15am and 12.15pm.
Youngsters will be split into three groups, for ages five to eight, eight and nine, and nine to 11.
Each session will cost £6 with a special rate of £40 available for youngsters booked to attend all 10 sessions.
"This is a great introduction to the game of tennis and there is also the chance to play in an end of course tournament at The Shrewsbury Club, a centre of tennis excellence,” said Town community officer Lee Pugh.
"Sessions will take place outside on the astro at the Power League which is a great surface to develop your game - and all equipment will be provided.
"This course will be great for learning how to work with other children, improving their own skill level and basic competition.
"The children will have fun through learning lots about the game of tennis. Each session will be structured with the focus on an area of play, for example learning to serve, rally or score. "
The tenth and final session will take place on the outdoor courts at The Shrewsbury Club on Sundorne Road with all parents invited to watch Tournament Day.
Each family will be presented with a FREE guest pass and given a tour of the fantastic facilities.
