“PROVIDING  OPPORTUNITIES FOR ALL TO FULFIL THEIR AMBITIONS”

THE COMPETITION FRAMEWORK

Competition is an important element of tennis yet it is one that players and parents can struggle to feel comfortable with.  The coaches at Polo Farm strive to create a supportive environment in which children can learn to enjoy competition, not fear it. We place the biggest values on trying your best and try to educate a player that doing your best is more important than winning or losing.

With its active programme of competitions, Polo Farm offers a warm welcome to players of other clubs, many of who travel considerable distances to play on our courts.

THE POLO FARM ADVANTAGE RED COURT MATCHPLAY SERIES

These LTA Grade 6 events take place every Saturday afternoon. They are designed to offer players match practice against others of the same rating. Matchplay events are open to both Canterbury Tennis Academy (CTA) players and players from other clubs and are refereed by a member of the CTA coaching team.

8&U RED MATCHPLAYS

  • every third Saturday during term time from 3-5pm.
  • held indoors and use the sponge ball.

These are suitable for players aged 8&U who can serve, rally and score and are open to players from other clubs. They provide a great opportunity either to start competing in a supportive environment or to work on gaining match practice. Players are grouped in boxes according to rating and a tennis leader will usually umpire each court.  There are no winners and these events are about players competing in a fun environment against players of a similar level.

9&U ORANGE MATCHPLAYS

  • every third Saturday during term time from 3-5.30pm
  • usually indoors.

10&U GREEN MATCHPLAYS

  • every third Saturday during term time from 3-5.30pm
  • indoors or may use the outdoor all-weather clay courts

12&U-18&U HARDBALL MATCHPLAYS

  • every Saturday during term time from 3pm
  • every third Saturday aimed at a different rating range.
  • outdoors on the all-weather clay courts

Places are limited for MATCHPLAYS; please register on LTA website to take part.
