Kelvin van Hasselt, club chairman, said: “Junior Club is a great opportunity for children to learn skills for life – as the earlier you start racquet sports the better.

“Just by playing, children improve by leaps and bounds each week and our coaches here at the club make it enormous fun for children.

“For some children it is the highlight of their week.”
