Essendon Green Ball Junior Development Match Play January 2022

January 20, 2022 @ 9:00 am 11:00 am

Looking for some matches to prepare for Club Competition? This is the perfect opportunity to get some match practice in with players of a similar level to prepare for the upcoming club competition season for 2022. We know you have all been working really hard on the training court, it can difficult to translate that into match play sometimes though.

This is also a great opportunity to meet and practice with your new teammates at the club!

This is why the team at Vida Tennis Essendon invite you to attend our Match Play Practice Sessions. These 2 hour sessions are designed to give your child an opportunity to play practice sets against other kids in the same level.


  • Green Ball 10am-12pm – A later timeslot will be added if we get more than 24 players
  • Maximum of 24 kids per timeslot to ensure max participation

What to expect on the day?

  • A Vida coach will co-ordinate the session with a pre-planned draw
  • Minimum of 2-3 practice sets with a competitor of the same level
  • A match review sheet to fill out
    • Take this sheet back to your private coach to discuss
  • A safe environment to compete without some of the regular pressures

This Match Play Practice Session is for you if….

  • If your child is struggling with implementing their training into matches
  • Need some match practice before club competition recommences
  • Wanting to build some more confidence by competing in a more relaxed environment without some of the extra pressures
  • Need to work on self match reflections

Quite often when a child comes in for their lesson and I ask them “how was competition this weekend?”, the answer is “good” or “bad”, with the match reflection sheets it can help your child understand what positives and challenges they had during the match in real time. They can then bring it directly to their head coach for the next lesson so it can be easier to discuss.
