WHY:

The Mini Coupe Le Blanc is a recreational event organized in collaboration with the Fondation des amis du tennis.  Its objective is to encourage the development of children’s tennis in Quebec. 

It is also a great opportunity for youngsters and their parents to see top international tennis players competing in the Coupe Le Blanc, a tournament for players of 12 and under, which takes place from 15th-21th August 2016.   


WHO:

Any child between the ages of 5 and 9 inclusive may take part in the Mini Coupe Le Blanc. It doesn’t matter if he or she has never picked up a racquet before – now is the time! Per group of 4 children registered, a parent/coach is also requested to volunteer.     


WHEN:

The event will take place from 9.00am-12.00pm, on Sunday, 14th August 2016.


WHERE:

The Mini Coupe Le Blanc will be held at the Club de tennis Services financiers Guy Duhaime, Parc des Loisirs Christ-Roi, 390, avenue Vaudreuil, St-Hyacinthe J2S 4G7.


HOW:

All children MUST be registered in advance. Registration is via the Coupe Le Blanc web site.

There is a limit of 100 places available on a first come first served basis.  Participants are requested to arrive at 8.30am to confirm their names and receive a complimentary tee shirt. At 9.00am the fun begins! After a 30-minute warm-up with ‘Jeunes en santé’, players are then divided up into 3 groups depending on whether they are beginners, intermediate or advanced. 

Beginners will receive a fun and practical tennis lesson by their coaches.  They will learn the basics of tennis and participate in many different games with each other. Trophies will be presented for 'Best Sportsmanship', 'Rising Star' and 'Best Hope'.

Intermediate and advanced players will be split into groups and will play everyone in their particular group. Parent/coach volunteers are requested to divide themselves between matches to keep the score for individual games.

Players are asked to wear training shoes and comfortable clothing to run around in. It will be hot and sunny (hopefully!) so don’t forget to apply sun cream and wear a hat. 

Please bring your own tennis racquet and a bottle of water, both labeled with your name. 

A complimentary lunch will be provided for all participants after the event and there will be a draw, with many exciting prizes available for the lucky participants.
