THE Avenue Tennis Club October junior camp was a complete success with quite a few new juniors coming to the club and getting involved with the coaching.

The camps are run throughout the year during the school holiday and focus on taking the youngsters through a variety of tennis shots.

The camp was run by Vinny Duddy with Barry Ramsden, Emily Rossiter, Rhiannon Parson and Heather Duddy and was split into the various LTA recommended ball groups of Red (up to 8 year olds), Orange (8 to 10 year olds) and Yellow (plus 10 year olds). Head coach Vinny Duddy said camp was great fun because the weather was fantastic and the kids were really focused on learning to play better and worked really hard.

The Avenue Club is fully committed to following the LTA guidelines with respect to junior tennis development programmes and runs a variety of classes throughout the week and on Saturdays specifically for juniors of varying abilities. Course timetable available on the website www.avenuetennis.com or contact the office (01278 782758), alternatively you can arrange individual lessons with any of the club's coaches.
