Will Ellett will already be a familiar face to many of you but we are delighted to now welcome him as a permanent assistant coach at Gladstone.
Will started playing at Gladstone in 2014 and helping out with coaching since 2018 when he was also GTC's Mens Doubles Club Champ with Sam Hodges.
Will is currently undertaking his professional tennis certification.
Tennisfit (Friday Mens & Thursday Ladies) is back busier than ever! And this Wednesday's forecast makes Mixed Drills (from 6pm) the perfect evening on court.
Please make sure you let Martin know if you are coming to these sessions so he can make sure there are enough coaches on court with you. If you would like to be included in Martin's regular What's App groups for each session, please drop him a message on 022 185 8816.
Last Friday's Pizza Night was a HIT with lots of kids on court and lots of parents enjoying the view and the refreshments!

Free Saturday morning coaching is also well underway - no need to book just come on down:
