If you’re looking to introduce your child to tennis, or improve their playing skills, then this year’s Goostrey Junior Tennis Coaching Programme is an ideal opportunity.
Children aged between 5 and 16 are grouped according to LTA guidelines for age and ability in sessions which take place on a Friday evening and Saturday morning during the 15-week programme from April 15th to October 8th, excluding school holidays and Rose Day weekend.

The sessions are promoted by Goostrey Tennis Club and run by LTA Coach David Richardson. Saturday morning classes include an opportunity for young beginners, accompanied by a parent, to get a taste of tennis in a 45-minute fun-filled session.
Children wishing to take part don’t have to be a member of Goostrey Tennis Club, but their families do have to be members of Goostrey Village Hall and Playing Field Federation (VHPFF), who own the facilities.
Booking forms for this year’s Junior Coaching Programme can be downloaded from the link above, collected from Goostrey News, or obtained by emailing coach David on firstname.lastname@example.org. The cost of the 15-week programme remains at £60 – equating to £4 per session. Dates as follows:
