Junior Programme

 
We offer a full programme for tots (3-5 yr olds), mini tennis players (5-10 yr olds) and juniors 11 through to 18 year olds and for all levels, beginner to experienced player. Our programme includes coaching sessions during term time and tennis camps in school holidays. We run junior tournaments, box leagues, match plays and our junior teams play in various team tennis events.
Juniors who are confident and competent to play against adults are encouraged to take part in club sessions and to enter the adult club tournaments.
All players involved in the coaching programme are required to be members of the tennis club.
 
As part of the Junior Programme the coaching team run Performance sessions. These sessions are for players who show good athletic ability, a love of playing tennis and learning the game. Players are asked to add these additional training sessions to their programme. The coaching team have also created pathways for talented juniors to be selected for County training squads.
