Player's from Heron Tennis Centre's Ace Academy are selected for Cornwall's County Squads
County training sessions for Cornwall's best young tennis players have begun for 2012.
The sessions allow Cornwall's finest young players to train together, practicing singles and doubles drills, in preparation for their individual competition scehdules for 2012 and, importantly, the Inter County Cup events coming up in the Spring. The Inter County Cup events see county teams compete against each other up and down the country. In addition to providing extra competitive opportunities for the young players to aid their development, the County event provides players with the opportunity to travel together and be part of a team, an uncommon aspect of the junior tennis circuit.
Newquay's Heron Tennis Centre was proud to have 6 players selected in the under 12 and under 14 age squads. When not having county squad sessions, the 6 players are honing their skills and developing as some of Cornwall's most promising talent at the Heron Centre as part of it's Ace Academy programme. Ace Academy provides talented, committed and aspiring players at Heron to have focused progarmmes, which feature small group sessions, individual lessons, professional hits, practice matches, and competition and fitness schedules.
Everyone is welcome at Heron and we have coaching sessions especially for beginner adults, as well as intermediate and advanced adults. There are also 3 Cardio Tennis sessions each week for adults to improve their fitness whilst grooving their shots. We have after school courses for juniors from the age of 5, "turn up and play" coaching fun sessions on Saturdays (from 9am) and Sunday (9.30am), and we have Parents & Toddler sessions on Tuesdays and Fridays at 9.15am. For more information about the Ace Academy pogramme, or any aspect of Heron's junior and adult coaching programme, please contact Heron on 01637 877555 or pop in to speak to a friendly member of staff at the centre located in Trenance Leisure Park.
In the meantime, we wish all of our aspiring young players a successful and enjoyable year of tennis and good luck for their County team aspirations.
