Welcome back Christophe Tipy, Club Coach at BLTSC

Great news- Christophe is back!!

Christophe worked at BLTSC previously whilst on a year sabbatical from his club in Paris. He was one of our most popular coaches and we are very pleased that he has decided to re-join Jason’s coaching team on a long term basis.

Christophe has vast array of experience coaching all standard of players. He has coached in Paris for 20 years. For 8 years he has been Head Coach of the Tennis Club of 13ème in Paris (600 members), he managed the team of 10 coaches and a very large, successful coaching program. Christophe competed at a high level as a junior player and has played in the French national league.

Motivation to coach: adjusting my approach for each player to inspire them to enjoy tennis regardless of age, ability and anything else!

Finals Day 2018

BLTSC’s annual tennis finals day was another great event, with a large number of members competing for glory!

Whilst Rafa, Nole, Angie and Serena were doing their thing at SW19, play was heating up in BR2. Well played to this years winners in the junior, Open, Vets and Super vets categories.

Congratulations to all members that took part in these events and thanks to those that helped organise the day.

 

Free tennis and squash open day – Sunday 8th July 10am to 1pm

All standards and ages are welcome to our free summer open day. It’s on Sunday 8th July from 10am to 1pm.

There’ll be a full program of events in tennis, squash and racketball. Even if you’ve never played before just come along with your trainers and we’ll provide the rackets and balls.

Our coaches will guide you to improve your game.

It’s completely free fun for all the family. There’s even a free bouncy castle for the young ones.

The bar will be open so if the exercise gives you a thirst you can enjoy a drink on the balcony.

The club is in Sandford Road less than half a mile from Bromley South Station. The postcode is BR2 9AN.

The club has 12 outdoor tennis courts, 2 indoors, and 3 squash courts. There’s also free wifi, BT Sport, pool and table tennis.

Sunday 8th July is the middle Sunday of Wimbledon so the weather’s bound to be glorious. However, if it’s raining we’ll be on the indoor courts.

If you do want to join there’s a discount on the day. New members are eligible for free coaching sessions.

To get more information on the open day or about the club, call Helen and Sue in the club office on 020 8460 0936 or email office@bromleyltsc.co.uk

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…..!

Exciting New Rebo Wall

BLTSC are delighted to have the first REBO Wimbledon practice wall in Kent!

Installed in 2016 our REBO Wimbledon wall is located in its own ‘REBO zone’. The area is screened off and located in the middle of our 5 clay courts.

The hitting face is at a nine degree angle, this provides a ball arc that is realistic and will help you to practice like the Pro’s!

Warm up before you play, recover from injury, work on your non-dominant hand- or just try and beat the wall!

Useful tip- start close to the wall with with low compression balls, increase your distance and work up to a full ball.

Quick reminder for members, that courts 11& 12 are out of action for the next two days as trees are being cut back ahead of our resurfacing work in August

Many thanks
