Tennis Camp Info

PLEASE READ CAREFULLY

Thanks for booking tennis camps  at Sutton Tennis & Squash Club, 19 Devonshire Road SM2 5HH. Please see below for lots of info about the camps………

Arriving & signing in and out

Morning and full day session
  • Signing in takes place in between 9am & 9.25am. 
  • Signing in is in the clubhouse. Children must be signed in by an adult – if your child arrives unattended, we will assume that they are allowed to leave unattended at the end. 

Parents of 3-4 year olds are required to stay. For all other age groups, you are welcome to leave after signing in.

  • Signing out is at 10.30am for the tots session, 12.30pm for the morning session and 3.30pm for the afternoon / full day. Signing out is also from the clubhouse.
Afternoon only session
  • Signing in takes place at 1.25pm.
  • Signing in is in the clubhouse. Children must be signed in by an adult – if your child arrives unattended, we will assume that they are allowed to leave unattended at the end. .
  • Signing out is at 3.30pm. Please collect your child from the clubhouse.

Parking (please be prepared)

Even though our club is in Devonshire Road, parking has become non-existent there. Although it may not look like there are restrictions, it is all permit parking. Please don’t be tempted to park across a drive or blocking the road in any way while you run in. There is a much better option. Directly over the road from Devonshire Road is The Highway. There is plenty of parking there except between 10 & 11am and 2 & 3pm. 


So this is perfect for everyone except parents of 3-4 year olds, who need to stay until 10.30am. For you, a good option is The Gallop, where you can park on the LEFT with no restrictions except between 12 & 1pm. See my pic below………

What to bring / wear

  • Children should bring drinks & snacks. We have a nut-free policy, so please avoid giving your child any food containing nuts.
  • Clothing should be sports-wear and shoes should be trainers. Under no circumstances should studs, crocs, or casual shoes be worn as these damage the tennis courts and are also not safe.
  • Children should wear appropriate clothing for the weather, including hats, sunblock and rain coat when relevant.
  • Children should bring rackets if they have them, but we have spares if not.
  • Children who are attending the full day should bring lunch. We have a nut-free policy, so please avoid giving your child any food containing nuts.

Bad Weather

Tennis camps go ahead in all weather and we shelter indoors and do other activities in really bad weather.

Safeguarding

The safety and well-being of your child is the number one priority. You can see our safeguarding policy HERE, but here are some details specific to the camps.

  • Camps are run by Head Coach, Karl Stowell, who is an LTA level 5 qualified coach (the highest qualification there is in tennis coaching). Karl is on site for most of the time during camps, but if not, we have a number of well qualified coaches who take charge.
  • All coaches have a valid DBS (criminal record check), but equally importantly, have been interviewed, references taken and in most cases have been at the club for years.
  • We are a team, ranging from highly qualified coaches to teenage assistants who help us. We have in-house training so that we all have the same principles about tennis coaching and safety.
  • There will always be multiple coaches who are first aid trained and we have a first aid kit and defibrillator on site.

 

I hope your child has a great time at the tennis camp. If you have any further questions, please do not hesitate to contact me at karl@stscsport.co.uk or 07976 547239 or via the form below.

 

Thanks, Karl
