Dan Maskell – VI Development Camp – June 18 and 19

Join us for a weekend of expert tennis coaching for players of all abilities and experience levels, mixed with fun, social activities to meet other players!

We are hosting impairment specific camps – one for wheelchair tennis, one for visually impaired tennis (B1-B4/5 with B1 players in their own hall) and one for learning disability tennis.

We have hand-picked the best coaches! All are very experienced and ready to cater for each player’s needs. Each weekend will consist of fun warm-up activities for the full group to join, then there will be elements where groups are broken into smaller sections for more focused skills-based activities. On Saturday evening we invite everyone to come together for a meal and a chat – the coaches will be there to give you more information about tennis in the UK and we may even have some special guests along!

Visually Impaired Tennis Camp – June 18 and 19 at The Northumberland Club

All camps will run on Saturday from 1 pm till Sunday at 2.30 pm (2 pm on the court with a wrap up at the end)

The cost is £40 which goes towards coaching and court hire. Meals/accommodation/travel will not be included. Players will need to arrange travel and accommodation themselves but we can assist if needed. If you don’t have your own equipment contact us ASAP so we can help organise this for you. You can book through this link (payment is required).

Report: Metro Tennis Tournament 2022!

Photo of Metro Tennis Tournament Trophy Winners - 3 April 2022

Metro Blind Sport Tennis Tournament 2022

The annual Metro Blind Sport Tennis Tournament took place on Sunday, 3 April, at Islington Tennis Centre.

Twelve B2-B5 players were split into mixed doubles pairings. We had players from across South England attend and a pair who had made the journey from Milan, Italy.

The tennis began with each pair playing against each other in a box. The format was one full tennis set to 6, with a tiebreak at 6-6.

The quality of tennis was excellent, with some very close matches going down to tiebreaks.

After a fantastic day of tennis, it came to the results.

In second place, we had Anil Kanani and Helen Potter, who were pipped at the post by Ewan Hayward and Maja Vojnovic.  The pair who won all their matches were our international pair, Davide Viglianti and Federivo Lazzari.

 

Congratulations to all of those who took part.

A special thanks to the volunteers who came along. Metro couldn’t have done it without you.

Keep your eyes peeled for the next Metro Blind Sport Tennis Tournament, which will take place in February 2023.
