Winter sports are coming to a close, and we're dreaming of the summer!
Have you thought about junior interclub for your child? Whilst tennis is a fantastic sport that can be played socially for life, the competitive element of the sport is not to be overlooked.
The ITF suggests that "the psychological benefits from regular tennis may help children to learn and develop positive personality characteristics which are useful on the tennis court, but more importantly, are essential for many everyday situations through life."
Junior Interclub is a competition open to all ages from beginners through to 18 years, covering a range of abilities. There are two Auckland Junior Interclub competitions run throughout the year. Pre-Xmas Interclub runs approximately October until December each year, and Post-Xmas Interclub runs approximately February to April. The pre-Christmas competition runs from the 27th of October to the 15th of December, with options of play on a Saturday or Sunday morning, at clubs across Auckland. Teams of 4 play a doubles and a singles match in age groups.
