Kids Pay & Play coaching sessions will run throughout the summer holidays. Best to book on through the All Court Tennis Academy app (ACTA). If you can't book, turn up anyway and we'll help you log in.
Phil Leighton, an LTA Level 5 Coach, visited 12 local schools to promote tennis to 4 to 8 year olds. Glan Aber and Chester Tennis Clubs worked together to liaise with schools and run Open Day Roadshows at their respective clubs over the weekend with both clubs offering on-going promotional tennis courses.
The Open Days were a big success. Our three hour-long Sunday sessions, run by Phil Leighton in conjunction with Aidan and our coaching team, saw 200+ children experience fun on-court activities. We were delighted to sign up over 50 new players. The promotional courses included 6 weekly tennis lessons plus a racquet.
Thank you to everyone who supported the Open Day.
Thank you to those volunteers who tidied up around the court sides and front of club house. It looks so much better.
Thanks to Aidan for organising a great Finals Day - and to all the participants. A sunny, bright day although rather cold!
Pay & Play mini coaching sessions will start again on Saturday 12th March. To manage numbers and payment, we are using the All Court Tennis Academy (ACTA) app. Please download the app (http://www.allcourttennisacademy.co.uk/) to reserve your space. Places can only be booked weekly and are paid for at the time. The app allows us to notify you if a session is cancelled due to bad weather and credits will be given. We request you cancel if you are unable to attend so that another player may sign up.
Sessions will run 09.00-09.30 and 09.30-10.00 for 3-5 years; 10.00-11.00 for 6-10 years.
Pay & Play adult coaching is not resuming just yet. You are welcome to play but there is no coaching. Please sign up using the usual WhatsApp group so that numbers are managed. Cost for non-members is £2.
Friends of Westminster Park volunteers have been cutting back the hedge alongside the tennis courts. Some sections need infilling to enable laying which will help manage the height and strengthen the structure. This will benefit the courts if leaves are below the fence line and allow us to maintain a gap along our boundary. A work in progress!

Running weekly - let one of the coaching team know if you'd like to play.
Delighted that Ashley Rogers was presented with the Tennis for Life Award for his contribution to Glan Aber over many years. Not only was Ash the Club Treasurer for 20 years, he was involved with the relocation of the club to its site in Westminster Park. Whilst no longer on the Committee, Ash is now a Trustee of the Club and we value his wealth of background knowledge.
