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.
Thanks to Aidan for organising a great Finals Day - and to all the participants. A sunny, bright day although rather cold!
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!
Mini court has been repainted - all ready for play with new net installed too.
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.
