Help for New Members
If you are a new member welcome!
We have new members joining on a regular basis. So you are not alone! Some new members have played tennis for years, and others are just picking up a racket for the first time or after a very long time. But all MLTC members have one thing in common- we were all new members once upon a time.
MLTC New Member Development Resources to Explore
Rusty Racquet Course
MLTC has “rusty racquet” (click here) sessions now that covers the fundamentals of tennis strokes and moving around the court to help beginners and players who need to brush up on their tennis strokes before going into general club session play. This course helps players develop (or remember) sufficient ability to serve and rally on the forehand and backhand.
Arranging coaching one to one, or with your friends is an important step to improve your tennis generally. Sometimes its fundamentals and sometimes its a specific area of your tennis game that might hold you back.
You will improve when you get out on the court and just hit the ball with others. It is great to see new members who come to Induction and Rusty Racquets and then arrange to meet other new members to hit with.
A ball machine is available at the club by prior arrangement with the Administrator. Its best to use the ball machine initially with an experienced club member or coach who can show you how to operate it and use it to practise effectively.
Tennis Buddy Directory
But for many “rusty racquet” course players, they want additional hitting practise on the court with other like minded players to get used to hitting the ball lots. And also to get more familiar with court etiquette and the rules of play.
So MLTC will organise volunteer experienced club member players who are available to play some doubles with new beginning players at the club who want to just gain some time playing doubles and getting used to tennis rules and tennis etiquette before mixing in with general club sessions. Their contact details will be on a Tennis Buddy Directory.
In addition, MLTC are planning Tennis Buddy social tournament type events on days and times that do not interfere with existing scheduled events that pair up Tennis Buddies and new player members to help
And MLTC will shortly introduce a Tennis Buddy Social Network page- and invite new MLTC player members and MLTC Tennis Buddies get in touch to arrange doubles court time and play, giving much wanted familiarisation and practice with strokes, etiquette, and tennis rules.
So keep checking the MLTC website for more information.
