Easton & Otley College has an indoor tennis centre on its Easton Campus with 8 indoor courts and 4 outdoor clay courts.
Easton Tennis Centre has a very large coaching programme with almost 400 weekly visitors catering for all ages & abilities, Head of Resources & Sport at College Matt Breese told us:
As you know we have 8 indoor courts as well as our clay courts, we have a huge coaching programme but it’s our Competition programme that seems to be gathering national acclaim. We are told by the LTA that we run the largest Competition programme in the South of England.
In the last 12 months we have had over 100 days of competitions and they come in two main forms, individual & team. Our Team Competition is the largest event of its sort in the UK. This summer across the ten events we held from 8&under to 18&under we had 138 teams, 522 players & just shy of 1500 matches! These teams are from 15 tennis clubs/centre which are Norfolk or Suffolk based with most sending multiple teams for each event. As we have so many players the events work well for both top players and competition beginners alike. The top players play in league 1 with the more inexperience children in league two. The format ensure no one is out of their depth & everyone enjoys playing singles & doubles for their teams.
As we have the indoor courts the scheme runs across the year with the summer event just coming to a close for the holidays & the Winter events kick off in late September. To get involved with any of our schemes simply call us on 01603731302.”
