Junior Coaching Programme

For all Coaching information please contact Martin Taylor:

Junior Coaching

For juniors aged between 5 and 11 we offer our Mini Tennis coaching courses, which are divided into three levels, depending roughly on age, as well as ability:

Red - ages 5 to 7,
Orange - ages 7 to 9,
Green - ages 9 to 11.

For older juniors we offer several courses, again depending on age and abilty. All courses are run weekly during school term-time.

Group sessions are held weekdays, after school, and Saturday mornings. Sessions are also held during school holidays on weekday mornings and afternoons. See HOLIDAY COURSES for more in­formation. We also offer individual coaching lessons.

  • The coaches recommend that developing young players play more than once a week.
  • Cancellation Policy - Any course that has been paid for will only be refunded if a doctor’s note is received to confirm that the child is unable to participate in the course. In exceptional circumstances a refund may be permitted for a course that has already started at the discretion of the Head Coach.
  • Young players must come appropriately dressed for the weather conditions. Any child inappropriately dressed will be asked to stay in the Clubhouse in order to avoid injury/illness. Players must always bring a drink with them, this is important!
  • Parents should escort young players to the courtside at the start of each session and collect them from courtside at the end of each session. We are concerned about young children being dropped off too early in the car park. Coaches can only be responsible for players for the duration of the coaching session.
