Tennis: Junior Leagues

6 06 2012

Dumfries Tennis Club has launched it’s first ever junior tennis singles league with great success.

This is a great opportunity for the juniors to take all their months and years of coaching and put their skills into action. May saw 11 juniors from 8 to 15yrs old competing to win the respective leagues.

A common problem throughout many tennis clubs is not the coaching programme, it’s what the kids do after coaching sessions are finished. Most don’t pick up a racket until the next coaching session. Being the most technically gifted player doesn’t win matches, the kids need competitive tennis to help them understand the game and to help them address their weak areas which they can then work on at coaching.

This month’s results and next month’s fixtures along with the rules can be viewed clicking the Junior Tennis league link.
