Happy Birthday to Oscar Groves who turned 11 years old last Wednesday!
Oscar's parents decided to throw Oscar a tennis party at The Hilt in Hiltingbury, near Chandlers Ford. Many of Oscar's friends from school attended the party where we played various competitions including a doubles tournament.
The weather could not of been better which only added to the occasion. The boys played their hearts out and where rewarded with a tube of new tennis balls each at the end for their efforts.
Absolute Tennis is able to offer tennis parties across Hampshire including, Winchester, Southampton, Romsey and Basingstoke. Just call Martin Terrill on 07801 056905
Last week was the concluding week of this year's summer camp program by Absolute Tennis.
Thanks to all the kids and parents for their involvement over the week. We hope the kids had a blast and there is no question that they all improved their tennis skills.
A special thanks goes to Josh Gook & Alec Younger for there coaching expertise. Alec Younger (tennis assistant) gave his time up voluntary to gain experience in sports coaching. Thanks to Josh who visited us from his full time position at Virgin Active, Southampton where one day he decided to cycle to coaching in Romsey in the driving rain!
Below is a picture of Josh Gook (on the left) & Alec Younger (on the right) along with all the children who enjoyed playing tennis and multi sports in the sun!
This week Fraser and Martin coached children at Romsey Community School in this weeks summer tennis & multi sport camp. They were extremely lucky to have another week of dry weather and even some sun from time to time. Children visited the camp from Andover and Salisbury along with a few regulars from Braishfield which is a local village located just outside of Romsey.
Attendance was moderate this week which offered a great opportunity for the coaches to give each child more attention to their game. Each day the kids started their training by working on their fitness, followed by drills for stroke development, rallying competitions then match practice. On the last day the kids played a table tennis tournament for a bit of fun to conclude a great week.
The last week of summer camps starts on Tuesday next week (26th August) at Romsey Community School where Josh Gook from Virgin Active, Southampton will be joining the Absolute Tennis Team. Absolute Tennis will also be at De Vere Venues, New Place in the afternoons so let Martin Terrill know if you want your child to take up a place.
The sun shined all week for our first holiday camp of the summer at The Romsey Community School.
Each day was finely attended by children aged between 4-13 years old. The children improved their skills over the week and participated in Ultimate Frisbee and Kwik Cricket each day to warm down before going home. I think it is safe to say the children enjoyed the team games such as Mad Lives and Wave the most so we will be playing these games again over the next few weeks.
We are running more camps over the holidays in Romsey with sessions at Sutton Scotney, Winchester next week so let us know if you wish for your child to attend!
All 6 tennis courts at The Mountbatten School are due to be resurfaced in September ready for the winter. This project is following a new 3 grass (multi-sport) pitch, which is being added to the already outstanding facilities at the school.
The improved facilities will encourage more children and their parents to participate in sport, most importantly, start playing tennis at our onsite tennis club!
Due to the wonderful work from Andy Goode, of Andy Goode TV, we now have our first promotional video, which is posted through Absolute Tennis’ YouTube channel.
Andy made many visits to our club to shoot footage for the video, along with hours in his studio, compiling the footage into the seamless video you see today. See more on what Andy Goode TV does by visiting his website on www.andrewgoode.tv
We are very excited to announce that Stroud School has now joined our after schools program. Knightwood Primary School, Nursling Primary School & Awbridge Primary School are amongst the other schools offering tennis classes on their school site, straight after the last bell has rung!
Cuppernham Junior School will be joining our program in September where we will offer classes for children in Years 3-6.
