Juniors visit to Wimbledon 2011

On Thursday, 30th June, Head Coach, Penny and Janet took 7 juniors and 1 parent to Wimbledon.

The Club had been awarded 6 junior and 2 adult ground passes for being one of the clubs in Surrey with the most increased number of competing juniors. Denis and Camille Roelens joined the group.

The day started in the Club car park at 7.50am and the group travelled to the grounds via the 'park and ride' from Morden. On arrival at Wimbledon we were taken on a guided tour of the courts, sitting in the players box on Centre court and learning how the grounds are prepared for the event. The tour ended with a visit to the Aorangi Park practise courts and the restringing shop where all the players' racquets are prepared to their individual specifications.

After a visit to the 'kidzone', we saw some exciting junior tennis on court 18 and took it in turns to watch the ladies semi finals on Centre court. The children also explored the grounds and of course, visited the shops!

After an exhausting and exciting day,

the younger children arrived back at the Club at 8.30pm and the older group returned at about 9.45pm. A great time was had by all!
