Over the last 3 weeks, Elstead Tennis Club have run official LTA tournaments for 12 and under, 9 and under and 8 and under players. The competitions have been aimed at children who have not played in tournaments before, and a number of Elstead Tennis Club members have competed in all the age groups.
The tournaments have been run by Douglas Barker, one of the coaches at the club, who is also a qualified referee. The tournaments have been great fun for all the children who have been involved. The club will be running more starter tournaments throughout the winter as well as looking forward to the Regional Grade 3 Dan Burden Trophy from the 13th to the 20th July.
