Eaton Park Tennis News, October 2016

Eaton Park Tennis News, October 2016

Tennis is booming in Eaton Park and across Norwich. Chris Evans of Norwich Parks Tennis updates us on the latest news. It costs £30 per year for a family/household to join Norwich Parks Tennis. Membership allows you to book a tennis court up to one month in advance and guarantees the court will be waiting for you when you arrive. The scheme is massively popular and the number of registered players has recently exceeded 1500. It’s great to see such a wide variety of people playing tennis whether this is in the coaching sessions we offer, or with friends and family; daytime or at night, when the floodlights are turned on. More and more people are taking up the game and accessing the coaching programme to brush up on their skills. Norwich Parks  Tennis offers a wide range of professionally led coaching options including sessions for children, adult and cardio tennis, as well as our female only Tennis Tuesdays which are part of the This girl can campaign. All sessions are competitively priced and offer different options for different levels from beginners to experienced players. If you think you might like to get involved you can book a free first session to see what it’s like. Often with tennis the challenge is finding someone to play with. Our coaches offer social sessions on Saturday afternoons where you can come and meet new players. You don’t have to be a member to take these up as they are open to the all members of the public. To ensure everyone gets a good game there are two sessions, one for beginners...

Spring Cleaning Eaton Park

Spring Cleaning Eaton Park

On Thursday 17 April children from Bluebell Road School spent the morning in Eaton Park helping give it a spring clean to make sure it looked its best for the visit from the Green Flag judges the next day. Equipped with litter pickers, buckets and scrubbing brushes thirty boys and girls from year three set out around the park to clean benches and pick up litter. The visit was organised by Pat Garner of the Friends, who said “the children worked really hard and were very enthusiastic. We’re looking forward to their next visit when we’ll be exploring birds and insects in the park together with RSPB”. The Friends are keen to encourage volunteering from an early age and to organise activities that bring different generations...
