Serious Fun at Ennis Junior Summer Camp

Ennis Junior BC held their annual camp on the 10th-14th August 2015 at Ennis Tennis & Badminton Club.

Aisling Ryan an Ennis native and former member of the juvenile club was the camp coach. Aisling, who is living and training in Dublin and also an assistant coach for the U17 Irish Squad split the players into groups and devised a plan to suit and challenge each group of players.

The first group worked on developing their shots and footwork skills through lots of games and multi-feed activities. Aisling commended the players in this group for their attitude in training and improvement in their skills. 

The second group worked on developing new strokes and fine-tuning aspects of their technique. The players then incorporated their new shots into routines and match-play. This group was commended by Aisling on their efforts in the physical training routines.

Finally, the third and most experienced of the groups worked incredibly hard in all aspects of their training in what were tough sessions. Aisling commented:

“The players made very good progress in terms of tactical thinking in matches and in their technique.  All players rose to the challenge of higher intensity training and each player's self-drive and determination increased day by day”.
