County Talent Days
The best 7 and under and 8 and under players from the club are invited every 6 months to a county talent/fun day where they are looked at by the talent performance coordinator from the East Region and some of the county coaches. Selected players are then invited to special regional training sessions where they get together with players of a similar standard from around the region. As a club our aim is to get as many players as possible to the county talent days and then hope that some players will be invited to the regional days and ultimately National talent days. We also pride ourselves in getting as many players as possible playing for the County in the various age groups from 8 and under through to 18 and under and eventually Senior County.
High Performance Centre
We are lucky to have a High Performance Centre, Advantage Tennis Academy in Cambridge based at Hills Road Sports and Tennis Centre. The best players from the locality and surrounding counties train and practise at the centre from about the age of 7. The top players from the club, if they are of the right standard, are invited to attend sessions to enhance their overall programme. If and when the player is of the appropriate standard and the club cannot give them the programme they require, they would then do more of their training at Hills Road . They would still play for the club in matches and competitions. Current members who do this are Zoe Douglas, Harry Wendelken, Sama Malik, Chaaya Malik, Vicente Castillo, Yujiro Onuma, Felix Dean, Antonijie Vudjadinovic, Alexander Boyd-Bench. Although they do most of their coaching at Hills Road the club is still their home.
