Our Junior Championship Finals Day took place on December 12th just a little later than planned! Thankfully the weather was kind and all our junior players had a great day, with lots of fantastic tennis matches played. Our trophies did not arrive in time for the presentation, but our U18 Perpetual cups were a good substitute for the photos, and thanks to Supervalu, each player left with a selection box.  

Thanks to Emily and Katie for their help with umpiring and presenting prizes. All glass trophies and medals 

have since been delivered to all winners and runners up, of both championship and plate finals. 

Very well done to all juniors for taking part in the junior championships, and thanks to our coach Stephen, parents and Junior Committee, for all the organising  

We look forward to running next year's Junior Championships at the usual time which is during the summer, with finals day planned for mid September.

Junior Hot Shots Week  June 29th - July 3rd 2021. 

Sign your junior up now via MyAceBook (our court booking system). This is the 1st event of its kind for our club, and we hope to see lots of our juniors members on court during hot shots week. 

It is open to all junior members age 5+, and all levels. It is completely free as it is being funded by the club, to celebrate our juniors being back on the court after a stop-start year,  and to welcome our new members! We encourage as many of our junior members, of all ages to take part. There will be lots of fun activities during the week on and off the court, with some prizes up for grabs. Don't miss out! Sign up now via MyAceBook - must be your juniors name, not your own - this is a juniors only event!!

See schedule for the week, with age groups for each colour ball that will guide you to the best-suited event for your junior. The max is 3 x 1.5hr events per junior for the week (depending on numbers) but just sign up for one event if that is all that suits. 

For any of our juniors who maybe have not tried tennis, this is the time to give it a go!

We look forward to a smashing week of Tennis!

Any queries please contact juniorcommittee@donabatetennis.com
