Useful info’ for juniors and parents

Getting dressed

Some parents have asked to purchase MLTC hoodies ready for the coming winter months. I’ve put some new posters with the information up in the club on the junior board. The tops and hoodies can be bought online at:

If you go down to the bottom to sports clubs then racket sports, it takes you to the MLTC order page – it is all straight forwards and gives size guidance. If you prefer, the shop is:

20 Ozengell Place,
Eurokent Business Park,

Getting experience

A few parents have asked for help with encouraging their child to start playing friendly matches outside of our own club. ‘Match Play’ is an ideal opportunity for your child to take part in friendly matches against children from our area.

Our closest match plays are held at Polo Farm Canterbury, which is easy to get to and offers indoor and outdoor facilities. Their matchplays are usually Saturday afternoons. I have attached a link to these, including red, orange, green and yellow ball events. The organiser of these is Nick Wibberley who is helpful should you need any guidance.

I have also printed these off and put copies on the junior’s board. There are different dates for throughout the winter for each year group.

Getting help

I am more than happy to help people navigate the LTA website, should you need any help do please email me, or ask Jack at the club and he will be able to show you.

I am going to be updating the junior noticeboard in the coming month, so keep an eye out the information myself or Gavid may put on there.

If there is anything else that I can do to help you, or anything that you wish to suggest, do please email me or please feel free to also give Jack a message at the club and I will get back to you.

Hope to see you all soon,
