Tennis Group Coaching During Lockdown

We are delighted that we will be able to reintroduce group coaching at The Shrewsbury Club from Monday 8th June, in line with guidelines set out by the LTA. We will be putting in place the following measures to ensure that play is safe:

Groups will have no more that 5 players & 1 coach
Social distancing will be strictly enforced throughout the group sessions
Access to the club will continue to be restricted through the gates at the front of the club

Junior Performance Programme:

The junior performance programme will start back on Monday 8th June, we have had to re-write the groups to ensure that we have adhered to the maximum of 5 players in a group guidelines and these will have been e-mailed out to the players over the weekend.

The groups will take place either 4.30pm – 6.00pm / 6.00pm – 7.30pm, Monday – Friday and will be charged at £18.00 / session. Payments for these groups can either be made using a contactless card at the club before the session or via bank transfer, details will be e-mailed to all players. Please ensure that you have paid before the start of the session.

Adult Coaching Programme:

We will be reintroducing our adult coaching programme initially for 3 days a week; Monday, Wednesday & Friday. As above, these groups will be restricted to 5 players & 1 coach and we intend to run 2 groups simultaneously. Initially the groups will run 10.00am – 11.00am, however, it necessary we will introduce additional groups 11.00am – 12.00noon & 12.00noon – 1.00pm on each day.

We will endeavour to ensure that the standard in each of the groups is suitable. The groups will be charged at £6.00 / session.

Tennis Xpress:

Tennis is one of the few activities which is permitted at the moment and as a result we will be running a 6 week Tennis Xpress course for adult beginners on Tuesday evenings.
