Best Value Tennis Coaching Fees - Information At Foot of Page






Local Tennis News:

> NEW INFLATION BUSTING PRICES: Lineball Tennis have had to raise prices for its tennis-coaching services (see new price at foot of page). 
 
The Lambeth Council managed public tennis-courts in Clapham Common Westside is now available for hire at £10 per hour for tennis-coaches too. Background: earlier in the year, the Council scrapped the junior rate of court-hire at £4.35 and adult-hire for £8.65 and replaced with a single-fee hire at £6.50 - we were neutral to the mid-price; then shockingly, some months later the court-hire fee was raised to £10 for the public (manifesting thecost of living crisis!)

Intense / heavy tennis-court users deserving of economies of scale pricing

Effective September this month the rate applies to tennis-coach block-book of courts, which LineBall's principal-pro Krishna has objected to Council management; as intense / heavy tennis-court users deserving of economies of scale pricing, in the least - see pic. And also we have complained about onerous terms of court-booking e.g. licensed coaches have to give 24-hours notice to cancel block-booked courts, even for weather discrepancies. 
 
Pre-pandemic when staff  was employed at site coaches could cancel via phone or in-person with two-hours notice. Strangely the public can still cancel online with 2-hours notice. Watch this space for Council's reply LineBall is awaiting. (ks-21-Sept-22)
 
> LineBall Tennis's industry has been gratefully noted:  A local resident near the homebase tennis-courts on Clapham Common's Westside known as "Dee" sent Krishna these pictures of him and tennis-camp playing.

A dry heatwave 12th August 2022 afternoon, with Krishna and few brave tennis-campers Peter Theo Alex & Rose out there on Clapham Common Westside. Pictures courtesy of Deirdre.

Today 25 Aug. we had the most rain overnight and early morning as thunderstorm-warning issued again for SE England. Climate change is all too real! Pull your finger-out Government et al agencies.




 
 
> Annual decade-long "Strictly Come Juniors Tennis Camp" - Summer 2022 at Clapham Common is NOW taking bookings:
Psst! Please pass it on!
as we rely on word-of-mouth recommendation, as opposed to oureach of schools or other marketing [ks 14-July-22]

 
> Reporting on Finals Weekend at Wimbledon 2022 (with no Russians including world no.2 Daniil Medvedev, and no Federer and Alexander Zverev in main mens draw). We expect and wish Ons Jabeur of Tunisia success versus Elena Rybakina of  Kazakhstan - as in pics below, in the Saturday's Final shortly!

  
LineBall Tennis's Krishna is also rooting for Nick Kyrgios in the Men's Final tomorrow Sunday. His near-GOAT opposition is Novak Djokovich. And who has earned credibility with his humanitarian stance against the Covid panic pandemic of 2020-21, at least in Krishna's view.[ks 9Jul22]
 
> Tennis Coaching Arrangements at Clapham Common - if  you find it difficult to book courts due to too many coaches commercialising a municipal facility - please report to sports@lambeth.gov.uk if there are NOT half-the-courts of 8 available and used by public.
