Mini Tennis coaching will be available for juniors aged 5 to 15 all throughout the day, with adult beginner coaching and ‘beat the ball machine’ also being organised, so there is something for the whole family.

Members of the club will also be on hand to explain the club membership, social events and activities that are run during the year, and the number of teams that Salts have entered in the local and Yorkshire leagues.

“Our weekly coaching is open to any child from 5 to 15 years old who would like to come and try out tennis” Gul said.  “Our coaching courses are filling up fast, and we are running a number of summer tennis camps in the school holidays which are proving very popular”.

Salts Tennis Club is a part of Salts Sports Association, and is situated in the playing fields at the bottom of Victoria Road in Saltaire (over the canal, turn left, and the courts are 200 meters down the driveway on your right).
