Term Time

The new Term commences on 5 January 2019 and the timetable for Coaching is now available below.

Thursday Jan 3rd - Coaching forum at 6pm in Clubhouse for parents where Phil our new Head Coach will talk through the new Academy Programme and give information out, and take several questions. 

RADYR TENNIS ACADEMY 

TERM 1 DATES 

Saturday 5 January 2019 - Friday 22 February 2019 (7 week term)

I hope you will all find the transition of moving over to the Radyr Tennis Academy from the previous coaching programme a smooth one.

I am delighted to announce that senior coach Tom Richards and assistant Omega will be assisting me with the delivery of this Inclusive Radyr Tennis Academy at our club. I hope to have one more coach with us in due course. 

The Academy offers two strands for all our players to play and perform in, the two strands are developmental and performance. Tom and I have tried to get everyone in the correct strands, although I am sure there will be some continual player movement between the two strands as the weeks unfold and players improve.

As coaches of the Academy Programme we will be having more regular communication through a termly newsletter, a Parents forum (Thurs 3rdJan at 6pm), and quarterly tennis reports so you are able to track your child’s progress. 

A big part of tennis development for any player, is in competition. The ITF (International Tennis Federation) recently quoted through statistics over many years that “players who compete regularly – tend to stay in the game of tennis for longer”. 

I am half way through completing my tennis referee course, and with the wonderful courts and facilities at our club, and many children accessing coaching on a weekly basis, this new Radyr Tennis Academy programme will offer the chance for quicker player progress through good quality coaching and regular match-play competition. 

Please see below the current year groups / days and times of your child’s sessions and each player’s transition into the new Academy Programme.
