A new 12-week autumn tennis course for juniors starts at Clevedon Lawn Tennis Club on Monday September 20 - and everyone is invited to come along and join in all the fun!

Following on from the successful junior coaching summer programme this year, CLTC are again inviting children aged five to 16 to take part in action packed daily activities.

There will be various various events to keep everyone on their toes, including simple tennis drills, technical and tactical instruction, and for the older children match play training.

Spokesman Nicholas Walsh said: “Since we included children who are not members of the club, numbers have dramatically increased.

"We are getting great feedback from parents who have been impressed by our head coach Michael Rakosi and his team. In fact quite a few teenagers as a result from their time at the summer camps have decided to join the club as junior members."

Clevedon LTC is situated in mid Clevedon just off Princes Road in a very picturesque setting. There is adequate car parking, and parents are encouraged to watch their children from the terrace, close to the clubhouse. The club has a fully stocked bar, with tea and coffee also available.

Walsh added: “A new group has recently been formed exclusively for teenagers to play amongst themselves, and this is proving an increasingly popular event.
