TENNIS SCHOOL – START UP AFTER THE CHRISTMAS BREAK
The last lesson of the season for both our juniors and seniors will be Saturday 16 Dec. We are then back on court Monday 08 Jan.
All lesson days and times will continue as per 2017 unless you are contacted personally by us via email or telephone. So, an automatic registering happens in 2018. Please however, let me know by the 31 Dec 2017 if you will not be continuing with courses.
Please also let me know if you are interested in more hours (course, contract, etc). To all players and parents who have already sent me an email regarding this, we will try our best to meet your wishes and get back to you asap.
We are also looking at introducing new courses for businesses, students and all players who have the opportunity to play before midday Mon- Fri (09:00-13:00). We welcome all here at GTK! If this could be of interest to you, your friends and colleagues please contact me (firstname.lastname@example.org or 904 77 627), and we can chat about offers that will suit you all.
GTK EVENTS IN 2017
This year GTK has arranged many successful tournaments and social events with the Orange Master in June as the highlight. We will continue to do so, to create a stronger bond between members and all groups at the Club.
- JANUARY – We arranged an U12 Tournament in partnership with Norwegian Tennis Federation (NTF) with play at both GTK and Oslo Tennis Arena. The tournament was open to all players in Norway and we had almost 100 players representing most clubs in and around Oslo J
- MARCH – The U10 Open Tournament was next up! Again, another successful tournament with 61 entries where both players and parents enjoyed their time here at GTK.
- APRIL – Indoor Senior Club Champs, 28 players had a blast on and off the court with the highlight being the players lunch on the Saturday afternoon, followed by Speed Double on Sunday and finals. Delicious food, great company and awesome tennis all packed into 1 eventful weekend. Already looking forward to the next J
- MAY – The annual Tennisens Day was held. An open day for all to familiarize themselves with Grefsen and what we have to offer to the neighborhood.
- JUNE – Drill Spill Grill – A social event of cardio-tennis and social playing, created by our Senior Committee to include all adult members over the age of 19 to enjoy a day with us on and off court. Unfortunately, the weather wasn´t on our side, and we had to cancel that day. Look forward to new chances.
- JUNE – Probably the highlight of the year at GTK … Orange Tour Masters!! 206 kids from 19 clubs were represented in our Orange Tour Master – 64 teams in total.
- AUGUST – Week 33 summercamp. Once again, our ever-popular camp was enjoyed by all who took part! We hope to see you in the new year!

This year we had around 80 players and parents joining in with a delicious lunch and dinner being served after play.
