NewsFlash - Touch Tennis

NEWS FLASH! Dear Members, On Thursday 16 th March at 7pm the Club held a trial touchtennis training session for eight players. Some of these players are looking to gain world ranking points by competing Nationally at Woking Tennis Club in June of this year. For those of you that haven’t heard about touchtennis it’s a miniaturised form of tennis played with 21” rackets using official touchtennis sponge balls on mini courts over low nets. The game is extremely physical as rallies are much longer and more intense than real tennis………. more like squash/table tennis……. it makes for a great fun fitness session. It’s a great leveller and can be played by all levels from beginners to advanced tennis players. Having received excellent feedback from the players I propose the following: touchtennis MATCH PLAY SESSIONS ? INDOOR COURT No.1: THURSDAYS 7pm – 8PM ? EQUIPMENT: all provided 4 x Mini Courts, Rackets & Official Balls ? LIMITED PLACES: Singles play for 8 x players ONLY ? SHORT BLOCK: Starting next week: March 23 rd & 30 th April 6 th & 13 th ? CONDITIONS: The block can only run if 4 x players (2 x pairs) have paid in advance to secure the peak court time booking ? SINGLES PLAY: Book a mini court with an opponent for 1 hour’s match play ? COURT FEES: Members £3.50 x 4 weeks = £14 Visitors £5 x 4 weeks = £20 ? PAYMENT: In advance by calling the ITA office on: (01752) 426322 ? CLOSING DATE: Next Wednesday 22 nd March to allow us time to cancel courts I hope that there will be sufficient interest for this short block to run and if successful as part of the Clubs 50 th celebrations I’d like to hold an ITC touchtennis Championships 2017 later on in the year. Happy hitting! Paul Butcher (ITA Tennis Director) M: 077431 66581
