Melton Mowbray Tennis Club’s first coaching camp of 2017 got under way this week under the supervision of head coach Di Burdett, assisted by
top junior Sam Dryell.
A total of 20 youngsters attended the two one-hour sessions each day, with ages ranging from four to 14 years.
Despite the chilly weather the youngsters were upbeat and enthusiastic, some trying tennis for the first time and Di was delighted with the turnout of children who they hope will be instrumental in the development of the new club.
Meanwhile, off-the-court negotiations are continuing with Melton Council over the development of Melton Mowbray Tennis Club at the embryonic Melton Sports Village venue.
Chairman Nigel Haynes is confident the club will get the thumbs-up which will allow it to improve the facilities in the near future.
