Deal Indoor Tennis Back From The Brink for 2017

Last year, after several disasters, which included a flooded office, flooded tennis courts, damaged computers and lost work, the Deal Tennis team worked tirelessly in the face of adversity to pull off a remarkable achievement in retaining their prestigious Tennis Mark + award, which they had first obtained in October 2015.

Tennis Coordinator Vanessa Webb said, “It was the enthusiasm and positive attitude shown by the whole team that pulled us through what was a very difficult season.”

“We overcame all our setbacks and built from this, securing five new school links and forming an after schools’ club. Then at year end we held a very successful Christmas Open Tennis Tournament too.”

The team is now all set for a tremendous 2017 since the resurfacing to the tennis courts was completed on 9th January.

We have a full programme now in place and are really excited about the future.” Vanessa said.

Their busy schedule includes the usual tennis camps, and all year-round coaching programme.

They also have in place: 16 LTA Graded Tournaments, Road to Wimbledon qualifying event, Kent School Games Tennis Festival, LTA Teacher Education course for Cardio Tennis, 4 cluster challenge events,  4 LTA/Benenden summer tennis festivals, 6 Davis Cup Legacy Tennis for kids courses and 2 Great British Tennis Weekends.

If that isn’t enough, this summer the centre has entered 13 Junior teams into the Aegon summer Tennis league as well as 2 Adult teams plus a further 5 Adult teams playing Kent league and another 4 teams have entered the East Kent League!

Confidence is high and optimism abounds, so don’t be surprised to see even more school links formed during the year too!

Sometimes, ‘Enjoying Life and Having Fun’ can be hard work, but the Deal Indoor tennis team know how to make light of it. For good reason too, as they need to stay on track for the next Tennis Mark + assessment in September. Exciting times! Go for it Team Tennis! Let us know how it all moves forward.
