WINTER IS COMING

Winter is coming and it’s important to prepare yourself for the cold weather ahead. As the temperature starts to drop and the days become shorter, it’s time to start thinking about your winter wardrobe. Many people think that winter clothing is only about keeping warm, but it’s also about staying stylish and comfortable. So, it’s important to wear proper clothes during this season.

It’s important to dress appropriately for the activities you’ll be doing in the winter (e.gspray jacket, beanie, warm water in drink bottles etc).

If you’ll be spending a lot of time outdoors, make sure to wear proper winter sports clothing, such as a waterproof jacket and pants, and insulated gloves. If you’re just running errands around town, a warm coat, scarf, and hat will suffice. Remember to always check the weather forecast before heading out and dress accordingly.

WINTER TERMS

Sessions may from time to time be cancelled due to poor weather. Rain or extreme heat. An sms cancellation message is automatically sent to the players nominated mobile to inform of the weather cancellation. If no sms is received please assume lessons are running as normal.

Your tennis coach who is onsite at the venue has the ability to assess court surfaces and make decisions on lessons cancellations. Your Coach will inform you ASAP, but sometimes the rain will come as the lesson starts, or 5 mins after the start of a lesson, so we do request understanding for parents, when the weather is not so kind.

Sessions held on site in a school environment have an undercover / indoor alternative (eg: school gym), all lessons due to rain will continue in the undercover / indoor area.

To stay on top of the latest weather updates, be sure to visit our page

A lesson and court status update will always be posted before school pick up, to save busy parents time. As always in the event of a weather related cancellation, your coach will send an sms cancellation to your designated mobile number.

We trust posting on our social media channels will hep busy parents save time.
