The Deniliquin Lawn Tennis Club junior competition’s first round of playing and coaching will start on Saturday morning.
Players are asked to arrive 10 minutes earlier than the listed start time to receive a quick brief regarding how the program will be run this year.
Players are to contact their team captain before Saturday to confirm availability.
Junior tennis president Jon Gatacre is excited for the upcoming season.
‘‘We are looking forward to seeing our tennis families again, and to welcoming all new players, parents and carers,’’ he said.
‘‘A more coaching focused approach has been introduced to hopefully increase participation, court time and to keep up enjoyable skill development in preparation for competition.
‘‘There will be new start times to help with court allocation for our coaching programs.
‘‘As we are all volunteers, it would be amazing if you could please offer assistance for coaching programs that are being delivered and to help out.’’
Following their coaching, each player will play two doubles matches for their team, with a new ‘challenge’ match system introduced for singles matches.
