Saltaire Tennis ClubSalts Tennis Club in conjunction with Salts Grammar School and Matt McTurk’s coaching team have developed a tennis coaching program for 2007, working in partnership with Bradford Council, Bradford Vision and the Yorkshire lawn Tennis Association, and we would welcome your support and involvement in the activities being run this year.

Bradford Vision and the Yorkshire Lawn Tennis Association have kindly sponsored the coaching program in order for us to deliver ‘affordable coaching for all’. We will be providing free taster coaching sessions, play tennis open days, and coaching courses throughout the spring and summer, and will be providing equipment (rackets and balls) for juniors to use.

The program consists of 4 activities:

1. Tennis Leaders coaching training program for 14 to 16 year olds (aimed at young tennis players who want to take a more active part in coaching and assisting tennis coaches delivering mini and transition tennis)
2. Tennis assistants coaching course for teachers / parents (aimed at teachers and parents who wish to assist in the tennis development of their children)
3. Tennis coaching taster classes (in school) (a number of coaching classes are being organised free of charge for children in school curriculum time, we hope you will support this initiative in holding a taster session for your school).
4. Tennis coaching courses at Salts Tennis Club (affordable coaching courses and summer camps throughout the year, are being organised for juniors aged 5 to 18 years old).
