The Autumn term 2010 has seen much progress on all fronts from our junior and senior tennis players, at St Joseph’s we run an excellent tennis coaching programme offering mini tennis (red,orange,green) and squads for players on the full court as well as individual lessons.
St Joseph’s school offer competitions such as inter house tennis, an annual school singles competition for junior and senior players alike and competitions against other schools.
My vision is for more school competitions for all ages and stages and to get more players participating in club tennis either with me in Launceston or for those who live further a field at their local clubs. With more tennis, playing standards will rise and with more competitions better ratings will be achieved great for the children, great for St Joseph’s.
Any parents wishing to discuss any tennis related matter or just have an update on your children’s progress in general please contact me. I am not just here to teach but to guide you in to the world of tennis should you wish. Launceston tennis club boast a great facility with three full size courts and a mini court all floodlit within the town. Membership for juniors is a real steal at low prices and any players that want to gain access to further practice either with further coaching or practice in general then this is of great value. Any player wishing to get more information can contact me or visit the Launceston tennis club website.
Junior and senior players will have competition information at the end of every school term and it is always good to see new players competing as well as existing players. The coaches most improved mini tennis player this term is Fallon Gillies, Junior player Emma Gillard, Senior player Laura Champ. The Junior school singles champion for 2010 is Torin Gillies who defeated Emma Gillard in a close Junior final, the senior final is delayed but will be between Penny Tilsley and Abigail Logg. The Launceston cup between St Joseph’s and Launceston college and inter house tennis in both the junior and senior school at the time of writing are still to be played. James Brobin
