One of the highlights of the local junior tennis calendar takes place at Enniskillen Tennis Club from 19-21 October. This tournament is sponsored once again by our local Dunnes Stores branch and is for junior members only. With a junior membership of well over 100, a bumper turn out is expected with barbecues taking place on the Saturday and Sunday. For the youngest junior members, there is an U8s, U9s and U10s event taking place at the club from 10.30-12.30 on the morning of the 13th October.
Coaching sessions under Matthew and Louise McGann are now well underway at the club and this tournament provides the juniors with an opportunity of putting what they have learnt into practice. The emphasis for the week long competition is on having fun, so don’t be concerned if you don’t play tennis every week. There will be events for those of you who have limited experience of competition. Anyone wanting to enter may do so through the club’s website at www.tenniskillen.com on or before Sunday 14th October.
Although these events are limited to junior members, our Friday club nights are open to all and have started up again till Christmas. Three sessions take place each Friday night from 5.30, 6.15 and 7pm for 4-6, 7-10 and 11-17 year olds respectively and your child does not need to be a member, nor is it necessary for them to have played before. So do encourage them to come along any Friday evening if they and their school friends want to try out a different sport.
