Junior Coaching

JUNIOR GROUP COACHING PROGRAMME (Full Programme to start in September 2020)

We have Four excellent coaches, Christian Allen (Head Coach), Chris Ashton, Rob Heaton and Kelly Shipton all fully licensed through the Lawn Tennis Association.

Groups coaching sessions take place for an hour after school most days of the week and we cater for ages from 4 upwards and all standards, from absolute beginner to advanced players. The groups mirror the Lawn Tennis Association Mini Tennis programme.

The age bands are for guidance only and the coaches will ensure that your child is placed in a group suitable for his/her ability. The groups are fun and ensure that each week there are certain technical skills practised with match play at the end of the lesson.

These groups are for children 4 to 6 years who are new to tennis or would like to carry on playing one or two hours a week in a fun and enjoyable environment. The children use lighter balls on a smaller court to help them develop their skills.
