Local Tennis News:

> Since May 14th LineBall Tennis principal Krishna has resumed tennis teaching / coaching services, since the lockdown started on March 23rd. A full report in draft format is available via above link and here: "Clapham Common Tennis: special Covid19 Report".

> LineBall Tennis are now planning Strictly Come Juniors Tennis Camp - Summer 2020 (under Covid19 restrictions!). The UK's governing body for Tennis is the Lawn Tennis Association - LTA. They have issued a statement, which can be read fully on their website:
"Players from different households can now play doubles together as long as they stay two metres apart as far as possible, and small group coaching for up to six people (including coaches) can resume.".
So Krishna, principal tennis coach, is organising by invitation small groups of five other players at a time to attend on-court and off-court holiday tennis camp. This "small group" is not so unusual for Krishna to adapt as he always believed and preached smaller groups to benefit teaching and learning principles in tennis. Especially in comparison to the over-crowded multi-sport camp run by rival coaches.

> Krishna, managing the LineBall Tennis enterprise is licking his wounds after his political activism to get a relevant progressive government installed. After the 12 December 2019 Christmas Elections he is deflated by the electorate. He combines the tennis-coaching and stringing enterprise with his activism in financial political management. Have you checked out his Twitter account @LineBallTennis? Look out for his articles. After some self-promotion! it remains to pass on the Season's Best Wishes! and Happy Holidays. (KS 19-Dec-19)

>Sign-up for Clapham Common Bowling Green League 2020
Clapham Common Westside Bowling Green and Tennis Public Amenity
You may know that Clapham Common Bowling Green by the westside of the common (in picture) is due for re-development, as other than its original intended use. Shame! that 50-years plus heritage characteristic of the area will disappear unless YOU take action. We have more on this via An opportunity to save it by joining a proposed competitive league of green-bowling on newly-surfaced pitch, potentially for 2020 start. Contact me Krishna via if interested in supporting a bowling green for my and future generations. (ks 12/7/19)
