Club Case Study | Romsey & Abbey Tennis Club

At Grayshott Tennis Club there were 22 juniors on court with former Davis Cup player Andrew Richardson supported by club coaches Jasper and Josh. With a mixture of coaching tips, fun games, challenges and even some high quality match play, everyone had a lot of fun in the 2 hour session.

Meanwhile over at Grayshott Spa on the indoor courts 24 adults from Grayshott Tennis Club, Grayshott Spa and Haslemere Tennis Club enjoyed 3, hour long sessions. Danny and club coach James ran a series of drills and coaching on both courts and all participants had a great time as well as picking up a few tips along the way!

A great day was had by all when Danny Sapsford and Luke Milligan visited Romsey & Abbey Tennis Club on Sunday 17th May. Our fund-raising day, originally scheduled for Easter weekend but rescheduled due to rain, included lots of tennis from the pro's as well as other activities such as Bouncy Castle, Face Painting, Free Play & BBQ.

The pro's did a fantastic job coaching non-stop throughout the day. We started with a mini session for our under 10's, before moving on to juniors then finishing with two adult sessions. A quick break was taken so players could test there abilities with a fastest serve competition. And the whole day was rounded off with the pro's joining a number of players in some short tie-break sets.

Legacy Coaching

In total we raised just over £400 on the day which will go towards the clubs building fund to replace the current wooden shed with a new clubhouse.
