Tennis: Dumfries Tennis Club to start indoor coaching for kids

24 09 2011

Dumfries Tennis Club is set to beat the winter weather by moving indoors.

The Nunholm club have booked Max High Academy sports hall to run a pilot scheme of mini-tennis red & orange classes in the run-up to Christmas.

Starting on Saturday, October 22 and running for seven weeks, classes will take place from 9am to 10am and then from 10am to 11am.

The club is also working closely with the local Active Schools team, with a view to holding more mini tennis classes from January to March.

The new initiative comes after Dumfries Tennis Club and Tennis Coach Colin Dunbar looked at ways to try and increase tennis participation.

Sadly, Dumfries & Galloway is one of only a few areas in Scotland which doesn’t have any indoor tennis courts. This new indoor initiative being piloted by the Dumfries Club is the first step in what is hopefully the starting point to raising the games profile in the region with the ultimate desire to create an indoor facility for Dumfries & Galloway.

Having the chance to deliver coaching sessions indoors during the winter months, allows the children to continue developing their tennis and helps them to participate in our sport all year round.
