In line with the current national restrictions, the Girton tennis courts will remain closed between Thursday 5 November – Wednesday 2 December.
From Friday 4th of September we will be resuming the supervised junior sessions for the Club’s younger players.
We have introduced a number of changes to make the sessions as safe as possible. The main differences from previous years are:
– The session runs from 6:15-7:15pm
– Booking in advance is required as numbers are limited
– Parents/guardians should provide a contact number
– Measures to ensure safe distance and hand hygiene
– A record of those attending will be kept for Test & Trace
Please read the risk assessment in full before signing up to the sessions.
To book a place in the sessions or for any queries, send an email to victor at girtontennisclub.uk.

Following the positive feedback from participants in the Summer Coaching, the Club is funding a second coaching program by David Nation in the Autumn Term.

The courses run from 14th September to 19th October (6 weeks) then from 2nd November to 7th December (6 weeks).
The cost of the complete 12 week course is £24 per person for members (£48 for non-members).
If you are interested in taking part, please let us know as soon as possible to secure a place. Please indicate in your reply whether you are interested in junior or adult coaching, and your availability for the 2-5pm slots.
