KiddiTennis/KiddiActive Summer Camps!!

Kids Summer Camps 2016 @ Old Town Rec – Longland Rd

Our summer camps offer kids the chance to develop their tennis & active skills whist having fun and making new friends.

We cater for children aged between 4 years and 8 years. Upon arrival we will split the children into appropriate groups. We know times are tough and we want to be able to provide you with great value for money.  If your child is under 4 and you would like them to participate in part of the camp, that is absolutely fine as long as you stay with them to give them a helping hand. Just contact Emma before hand to arrange this.

Your child will need to bring a snack box and a drink (no fizzy ones please) to keep them going.  Please note that our facilities do not have refrigeration facilities. Please also apply sun cream to the children before the start of the day and prepare them for outdoor play with suitable clothing. In the event of bad weather causing a day’s play to be abandoned the camps will be extended by an additional day on the Friday. Play will normally continue in light rain.

Camp 1  Mon 1st –  Thurs 4th August 2016    Time: 9.30 – 12.30                                                       Mon     Tues     Wed     Thurs      Cost is £15 per day or £55 for 4 days

If you would like to book a place for your child, please contact Emma on 07811447711 or email for a booking form.

Come & be part of the Davis Cup Legacy programme!!

In December last year, Andy Murray led Great Britain to become World Tennis Champions for the first time in 79 years and now we want to help get thousands of new kids involved in tennis!

I am delighted to have been selected to be part of this great programme “Tennis For Kids” and I will be working with the LTA to offer Kids at Motcombe Infant School and Hellingly Primary a 6 week FREE tennis course for children who are new to tennis. Every child that completes the course will be given their own FREE tennis racket!  On the last session, parents will be invited to come along, get involved and play tennis with their child.

Tennis is a fantastic lifelong family sport, whether they’re 3 or 83! So get out there and having fun!

Judy Murray’s Miss-Hits Tennis Programme


Screen Shot 2015-12-07 at 17.24.24  Dear Parents


I am very excited to be able to bring Judy Murray’s ‘Miss-Hits Tennis Programme’ to Moira House. So what is Miss-Hits? It is a 12 week programme, split into two 6-week blocks. It is an indoor activity which means we can use slow-moving, fun, colourful equipment that will not blow away in the wind or get wet. I have a special Miss-Hits equipment pack which includes everything that is needed to deliver 12 weeks of activities. We use play equipment rather than tennis equipment, (balloons, chiffon squares, hit mitts, frisbees and fluff balls and much more), and the programme is specifically targeted at girls aged five to eight years old. The programme focuses on fun, friendship and enjoyment, whilst enabling girls to discover skills they never knew they had.

The Miss-Hits are a tennis playing girl gang, with six animated characters and Billie the Ball Dog. Each character represents a tennis stroke – Faith Forehand, Bella Backhand, Valentina Volley, Sasha Smash, Selena Serve, Alejandra Ace. The girls learn about one character each week. Each character has their own theme tune, warm-up dance, magic symbol, trick, game – and of course, shot. Through the characters, the girls can learn more about tennis by following their adventures on the Miss-Hits website and by playing the Knock-Out Tennis app which teaches them how to compete and keep score.

The Miss-Hits programme will run as follows:

Tuesdays           4.15 pm – 5.15 pm for girls in Years 2 and 3

Thursdays           1.00 pm – 2.00 pm for girls in Reception and Year 1

The cost is £36 per six-week block.

Places will be allocated on a first-come-first-served basis, as group sizes are limited to 8 girls. The courses will run after Christmas, and to book a place for your daughter please complete the attached electronic reply slip by Monday 7 December.

The course will be run by Mrs Emma Cherrill who is a qualified PE teacher and LTA Level 3 licenced coach, who has been trained to deliver the ‘Judy Murray Miss Hits’ programme.

Kiddi Active & Kiddi Tennis After School Clubs at Motcombe Infant School

Hello Parents of Motcombe Infant School,

I am now taking bookings for Kiddi Active & Kiddi Tennis clubs in Term 1.  All clubs will start from scratch in September as this is the only way to ensure that all the children get a fair chance to try both clubs. So if your child currently attends one of the clubs you will need to re-apply for September. Both these clubs are extremely popular and have been full all year with waiting lists, so if you would like a space for child it is advised to book early.

Monday 7th Sep – 19th Oct (no session 28th Sep inset) 6 sessions x £5 = £30                               Kiddi Active – fun packed sessions designed to keep kids active whilst having fun & improving their fitness & social skills through a variety of activities including ball skills, fun games, circuit games and parachute games.

Thursdays 10th Sept – 22nd Oct 7 sessions x £5 = £35                                                                  Kiddi Tennis – fun packed sessions helping your child to keep fit & healthy whilst having fun, improving the hand-eye coordination and learning a life long sport.

And finally I still have a few places left on our summer camps in August based at Old Town Rec. Do contact me for more information and a booking form.

Have a lovely summer holiday!

Best wishes,
