Junior Elite Player Forum

There will be a forum to discuss Ulster Branch elite player development on Tuesday 28th May between 7:00 pm and 9:00 pm at Windsor Tennis Club Belfast.

This will include all aspects of development from Ulster Squads through to Full-time Training.

This will be an open discussion where questions may be asked and positive suggestions received. We will also be covering some tournament issues. Following this forum there will be a report given on elite development at the UBTI EGM in June.

George Lucas will be bringing us up to date on Tennis Ireland issues in the first half hour of the meeting. 

If you have anything specific you want to add to the agenda please email me and let me know.

We look forward to seeing as many coaches and parents as possible to make this a productive evening.
