About Our Juniors

Junior Overview

Notting Hill / Pinewood TC has a long history of providing opportunities for it's Junior members to play in Waverley Tennis's home and away competition. We have been able to provide a structure whereby our Juniors do not have to leave the club to chase grades as they improve. This is simply that the Association has the critical mass of Junior teams at the various grades; from D Special through to Presidents Cup.

Leading up to entering in a team for WDTA competition the club has a programme of active transition to competition from their lessons including:

  • After School Orange/Green Ball Challenge competions
  • Monash League Orange/Green Ball Competitions

Juniors is under the direction of the Junior Convenor who is on the club committee to look after the interests of Junior and HOT SHOTS members.

 

Matches: Junior teams are entered in both the WDTA Winter and Summer seasons. The club has teams of all grades. Selection in higher grades is results based. Both, Saturday and Sunday morning competitions are available.

Awards are given to players at the end of each Season.

  • "Frog Award" - Player with the most 6-0 sets throughout the season.
  • Best Boy and Girl Player Awards - Highest aggregate score in a season.
  • Outstanding Season Award - Players with aggregates of 50 or greater in any season.
  • Best Club Person Award - An individual that has demonstrated charactersitics that embodies outstanding club behaviour and leadership.

 

Coaching: Junior coaching is available throughout the week by appointment with the club coach.

Club Championships: All Junior members are invited to participate in the Annual Club Championships. Boys and Girls A & B plus unisex C/D events are held. The “Championships” are held annually after the Waverley and District Tennis Association Summer Season finishes and before the Winter Season commences in late autumn.
