Feedback from our players has resulted in a new structure to our delivery of V I Tennis Cambridge 2017/2018.
From 11 April, we will be offering the following programmes:
B1(totally or low sighted) tennis: 11.30am-1.30pm
This is played on a tactile mini red court set to International Guidelines. Players will learn the latest techniques used within the B1 game and practise through match play.
All equipment is provided (excluding blindfolds which are optional for beginners).
Each session is lead by a V I Tennis specialist and supported by a team of coaches and volunteers.
B2/B5(partially sighted) tennis :
This is played on the larger Orange court in accordance with domestic and International standards. Players will learn new techniques and skills within sessions in order to play to a standard within their specific sight classification.
All equipment is supplied.
The session is lead by an experienced V I Tennis Specialist coach.
During the summer months an extra evening session is hoped to be offered for partially sighted players.
