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).

Visually impaired tennis is one of the faster growing VI sports in the UK. Blind Tennis often called Soundball Tennis is played on either a badminton court or a standard tennis court using a junior tennis racket and an adapted sponge ball that makes a noise when it bounces. Balls can be either black or fluorescent yellow to give maximum contrast with the colour of the sports hall.

The standard rules of tennis apply with just a few modifications: if you’re totally blind you’re allowed three bounces, those with partial sight are allowed two. Just like standard tennis, you can play singles or doubles. Sighted players can play against visually impaired players, but they’re allowed only one bounce and no volleying.

These are coached sessions by a qualified LTA coach.
