WOODLAND Tennis Club’s juniors have been enjoying a busy week.
Apart from the usual Saturday morning coaching, many of them have been attending a four-day summer coaching course.
Three groups of different ages got to grips with forehands, backhands, serves and smashes and, by the end of the week, even the youngest player, aged three, could hit the ball with confidence.
Daniel Johansson, aged four, was particularly pleased when he managed to hit a superb forehand right into coach Steve Pantling, who was standing on the other side of the net.

Steve was impressed with the talent on show. He said: “We’ve got some very promising juniors here and what was particularly amazing was the fact that no-one seemed to want to stop playing. It was great to see such enthusiasm for tennis.”
