New Head Coach

I am pleased to announce that we have appointed a new Head Coach at Trull called Jon Warren.  Jon is local to the area and has many years coaching experience, working at Taunton Tennis Centre, Wellington Tennis Club, David Lloyd Centre in Cardiff and Annabel Croft tennis academy in Sardinia!  Jon is currently an LTA level 3 coach and is working towards his level 4 qualification this summer.

Jon will be starting his new position full time from the week commencing Monday 7th May.  In the meantime he will continue to run the Saturday morning junior coaching as he has been doing for a few weeks already.  Jon is also available for one to one or small group lessons but at a limited availability until the week of the 7th May as he is currently working elsewhere.  However, from 7th May Jon plans to commence all the same adult and junior coaching sessions which Richard Stock was previously running.  Further information will go up in the clubhouse very soon about coaching, events and special offers!  Jon’s contact details are: Telephone: 07518989621 or Email jonwarrentennis@hotmail.com.  If you have any enquiries about junior or adult tennis please don’t hesitate to contact him and he is looking forward to meeting everybody.

Wimbledon Ticket Allocation

 

Trull has been allocated 10 pairs of Wimbledon Tickets this year.  The grid and all the details are up on the wall in the clubhouse.  The deadline for putting your name up is 7th May.  You need to be a BTM opted in member and have paid your Trull Tennis Club membership to be eligible to win the right to buy tickets from the club.  This will be drawn at the club during the evening of 8th May.

 

America Doubles Tournament

 

Spring is finally arriving … After the popularity of the American Doubles Tournament last year, we are running another on Bank Holiday Monday 7th May from 2pm until approx. 5pm.  There will be a poster and entry list in the Club House – please join in!  Maximum number of competitors is 24, so get your name down soon!  This is a chance for the “A”s and “S”s to get together for a fun afternoon, with a cream tea.  Alternatively you can contact  David Hill  davehill007@hotmail.com if you are interested.  It is suitable for all tennis abilities and juniors from 15 years and upwards may also join in.

 

Veterans Tennis (over 60’s)

 

If you qualify and are interested in playing super veterans’ tennis – socially or in local matches against other clubs please contact Karen Simon who is organising it by email kbdsimon@hotmail.com or 07876457216.  The aim is to have a regular weekly slot on a day/time suitable to most who express an interest.

 

Club Nights

 

Now the sun is shining (well possibly this week), don’t forget that club sessions are on every Monday, Wednesday and Friday evenings from around 6.30 pm onwards and open to all adult members (and any visitors who may be interested in joining the club).  Just turn up and play in with fellow members – you don’t need a partner  – all ages and abilities welcome!   Saturday afternoons social play is also running from 2pm onwards.

 

Tuesday evening is also a club session for those who are ‘Advanced’ members and have paid the higher subscription.  This is from 6pm onwards every Tuesday evening.  Anybody who is currently a ‘standard’ member and would like to come along on a Tuesday to see what the tennis standard is like is more than welcome to do so.  Contact David Hill David Hill – davehill007@hotmail.com or just turn up and he will be there on most Tuesdays!
