Tennis Leaders Course- 6th April

On Saturday 6thApril, Marina will be running a Tennis Leaders Course at Brondesbury for our young teenage players.

Tennis Leaders is aimed at 13 years plus and the content is suitable for older juniors just starting out on the tennis career pathway through to adult volunteers looking to support their local coach, referee or club official. 

It will run from 10.00am – 3.00pmand cover 3 modules: Introduction to Tennis, Running a Competition and Supporting your Coach.

The course costs £40 for the day. 

The Leaders then have to complete 6 voluntary hours at the club working with their coach, after which they receive a T-shirt and a Certificate and can then work as a 'volunteer', for which they get 'paid' their expenses. 

It is a great way to keep teenagers involved in the club, as they will be able to help with the Junior Programme and Holiday Camps.

To book please email Marina with the following:
- Full name
- British Tennis Membership number (can sign up here)
- Parent's mobile
- Leader's mobile
- T-shirt size (Adult Unisex S – XL)
