DTA encourages it’s players to compete as much as they can because it’s fun and also gives players a chance to further develop their skills. We start off the process of competing within our training sessions and then recommend that players attend our weekend family matchplay events.
Weekend family matchplay sessions are pay and play and open to all who want a game. Ideal for social/recreational players playing in their school and looking to have their first low key experience of matches. We teach players about the scoring system and basic tactics in a fun environment. It also gives them a chance to practice their skills in a match situation. Once they have become familiar with the rules and are ready for the next challenge we recommend that they play some local area matches.
Saturday match play sessions 1-3pm during term time:-
Each Saturday we have match play sessions which are ideal for player playing their first competitive matches. Different themes for each week check out what’s coming.
We have matches on Sundays for juniors looking to compete with other from other clubs. orange, green ball events for practice. Yellow ball events for ratings improvement.
Singles matches, doubles matches and touch tennis matches for adults.
To be able to compete at a club level against players from different clubs they will need to have a British Tennis Membership which is free to members of tennis clubs (please visit www.lta.org.uk/membership). Once they have a British tennis membership they should ask their coach about which tournament would be best for them to enter. Although tennis is an individual sport, as a club we do try to organise some team competitions. Please ask your coach for more details about these competitions.
