BLTSC’s girls party!

BLTSC threw a free party for its young female players in September. We have more girls enjoying tennis at Sandford Road than for some time so what better way to celebrate this but with some mayhem, lots of balloons, plenty of cake and too many lollypops!

Well done to Sam Tyler and his team of Tennis Assistants for keeping the proceedings under control… Just!

The bar is open!

The finishing touches have been completed so our newly refurbished bar is now well and truly open!

We’re planning a Club social function in November: keep your eyes and ears peeled for news…!

So after your game why not come upstairs, have a drink and a look around?

Discussions will begin shortly about soft furnishings, time to say goodbye to that carpet!

In case you forget- here is our old bar…..!

BLTSC Junior Performance squads

Junior Performance Squads

September 2016 saw the start of our weekly BLTC Junior Performance Squads:  Red, Orange and Green squads that are funded by BLTSC as part of a long term plan to support and develop our young talent.

The club has committed to a minimum of five years support for the initiative. Our coaching team selects participants based on their abilities and commitment to tennis. In return for these funded Junior Performance squads, players agree to represent BLTSC in junior team competitions. Our target is to double the number of our junior teams by September 2017.

Keep your eyes out for our young  ‘Squaddies’ – each of them has been provided a coloured t-shirt according to their group with ‘@BLTSC Performance Squad’ across the front.

Please lend them your support: we want them to be them taking up Adult team places in the not too distant future!

This is the Club’s invitation to Jason and his team to create the squads and select the players

BLTC has been considering how it could structure a junior player initiative: we have a long term vision to support performance players coming through at each age that are part of BLTC’s competitive framework. Previously we have direct funded 3- 4 promising juniors with great success, each having gone on to represent our club and Kent County in competition.
At this time we would like to involve a wider group of players by creating and fully funding three new performance squads: potentially supporting up to 30 junior players! Please can the your Coaching team now start things in motion and select the players?  As we have discussed, to be eligible players will need to be training twice weekly already, be a club member and be willing to play team tennis for Bromley Lawn. The invitation for players will be offered for a year initially with reviews thereafter. We are very committed to supporting players and their families and to making this initiative work long term so funding has agreed for the next five years.

We want to ensure the current profile of BLTC’s junior performance players continues to flourish alongside team success for the club: so our target for year one is to double our junior teams. The Club will also work to promote the profile of our junior teams successes and player achievements.

This strategy is bigger, longer term and a much larger investment than previously, as such it is possible that after year one we choose to refine or alter how it is structured. With the current success of British Tennis, it is a great time for the Club to be combining with your coaching team to support and develop promising junior players in this way.

To help make the squads more visible to the wider membership, the Club would also like to provide a BLTSC Performance squad T shirt to each player.

Junior Club Night

Junior Club Night

Friday night is Junior Tennis Club night!

We have two club night sessions running during term time on our three artificial grass courts (all floodlit)

Age 7-10 is from 5.00-6.30pm, followed by age 11 upwards from 6.30-8.00pm

Both sessions are completely free to junior members and are supervised by our Coach Sam Tyler. The sessions are purely for fun, it’s not competitive and are for boys and girls alike.

There is always lots of energy expended, plenty of tennis played and the odd football has been even kicked!

Drop the children off or enjoy a coffee and free WiFi whilst you wait. You can easily watch the session from the balcony above.

If you’d like to try out junior tennis club night before joining, please contact our office and they can arrange this with Sam. New members are welcome!

Junior Team & Competitions

Junior Teams

For those junior players that want to play competitively BLTSC run a number of Junior tennis teams.

These junior tennis teams start from Mini Red, age 8 and Under, and go through Orange and Green ball to full tennis 16 & Under: teams are boys, girls and mixed.
Depending on the age group matches are all completed in a day tournament or for the older teams, played home or away.

Each child’s welfare is the most important element in all tennis activity and where travel and competition is involved Parental support and involvement is key.

BLTSC encourage and support our young players and want them to see the club as theirs and something that they are part of, not simply courts to play on!

We hope that the investment we are making in our Junior Performance Squads, will deliver success for our players and our junior section, as we actively look to grow the number of junior tennis teams we have.

To represent the club in team tennis you need to be a member! Please remember that being a member means a cheaper coaching tariff too…
