It’s finally Summer with weather to match. At the end of this week the schools will close and the Nations’ children will be free for a whole six weeks. As a child I loved the summer holidays and I seem to be in the minority here but I loved the summer holidays as a Mum too. Personally I relished not having a routine for a few weeks. However it’s always nice to be able to give your children an opportunity to do some things in the holidays and some of our bestof Henley members can help you do just that.
In our Sports Training and Coaching category we feature 2 well regarded coaching businesses that run regular holiday courses for their sport.
Following Andy Murray’s victory at Wimbledon we wrote about the Summer Holiday Tennis Camps being run by Ash Taylor Tennis. Based at Peppard Tennis club the courses will run for most of the Summer Holiday.
If it is the Ashes series that has inspired your child, Performance Cricket will be running cricket courses this summer at Shiplake College, Henley Cricket Club and Wargrave Cricket Club.
