Wednesdays are Junior Night at the Comox Valley Tennis Club !
We are starting a different tack this year. The goal is to offer a version of the experience adult club members enjoy. Junior nights will focus on playing tennis in a fun social environment, with the added benefit of having coach Simon on hand to organize games and work with players to improve both skills and tactics. Junior members should already be able to play games independently. Lessons for children too young to play tennis independently and for absolute beginners will be offered through municipal recreation centres and privately through simontennis.ca
The afternoon start time (3:30-5:00) is for younger children, while 5:00-6:30 is for teens. The courts will be booked until 6:30, but junior members are welcome to continue playing without Simon's supervision or to socialize upstairs in the club house, provided a parent is willing to open and close the clubhouse. Simon is hoping to reach out to other clubs on the island to arrange inter-club matches, which should be a lot of fun. As junior members improve their skills (and get the green light from Simon) they are welcome to join the adult leagues and events at no extra cost. We are also considering re-instating the Ben Bellamy Junior Tournament as a fun wrap-up to the junior season.
As we are still uncertain what the Covid-19 restrictions will look like in the spring and summer of 2021 we will open up registration later in the year. In the meantime, please consider renewing junior memberships or signing up as a new junior club member . The annual membership fee is $20. This will allow us to contact you as we become more certain of specifics regarding numbers, dates and costs. Membership fees also contribute to the activities of the club in general, such as court maintenance, clubhouse lease, and insurance. The cost for Junior Night at CVTC will be $40/month and we are hoping to run from April to October.
