> Impending Retirement of Andy Murray
Yesterday (11-Jan-2019) British tennis and world tennis learnt the destiny of Sir Andrew Murray OBE, from his own words: he is to retire from tennis this year. LineBall Tennis did not investigate or research the severity of his hip injury that forced out of tennis last January. However, principal coach Krishna did hear from Andrew Castle, former British number one tennis player, that Murray's return to tennis was doubtful. Thanks for the inside-track Mr Castle. (KS,12-Jan-19)

> LineBall Tennis in Hibernation 
LineBall Tennis operating out of Clapham Common with principal tennis coach Krishna have had a period off from tennis coaching, due to court-resurfacing. The municipal court facilities re-opened a day after the ATP Finals final on 19th November  (read LineBall's blog above about the final, here too: The Wait Is Over - But Not For Brexit!). The courts had been shut since 1st October. But as yet the works are not completed as courts have not been painted, only the court-lines on black bitumen / road-type surface.

> LineBallTennis - Clapham Common have written "assessor's report" for two its junior players trying for The Duke of Edinburgh's Award. The juniors in question are Pablo and Olivia (pictured). They chose racquet sports tennis for their "physical" activity section of their Awards. If other local school children need to complete their "physical" section LBT will be happy to train and assess. (ks 19/6/18).

> Another free period to update our website with the stars of the show called LineBallTennis - ClaphamCommon (aka local tennis coach "Krishna"). Pictures speak a thousand word for self-promotion and for the juniors who simply express! As follows, May half-term camp and other private session ball-pyramid builders:
Happy Campers on School Holiday Inset Day Monday 4th June & Saturday 2nd June
 > Principal tennis-coach Krishna of LineBallTennis  - Clapham Common is happy to announce extended full-day sessions between 8.30am to 5 pm of "Strictly Come Junior Tennis Camp".  By local demand, extended morning and/or afternoon sessions are £8/£16 on top of usual full-day of £20,  will start this Spring half-term on 30th May Wednesday. LBT's Krishna understands this provide a valuable timing-facilty for working parents wishing to drop-off their young ones before starting  work. LBT expects to continue to school Summer holidays camp too, depending on demand.

> Members of the public who use the Clapham Common Westside public tennis courts have consistently complained about not being able to book courts due to too many tennis coaches. LBT's principal tennis coach Krishna has also complained directly to Lambeth Council, which oversees how the outsourced municipal facility is run. Percieving me as lone disgruntled voice they have not heard or heeded the complaints. So they would like the public to write to Lesley Ambler, Commissioning Officer for Sports & Leisure at Lambeth via email:

> The background  to the over-crowding at Clapham Common tennis courts is a single coach who hires additional external tennis coaches to run a tennis coaching business (when there are sufficent local LTA clubs set-up for that specific purpose). These coaches then get licensed by Lambeth and both contract for this coach or independently.
