MINI TENNIS/TOTS (Red/Orange/Green) (2yrs – 10yrs) – Split into 3 levels. Starting at Red level on a badminton sized court. Once players have the basic skills they will move to Orange level on a shortened tennis court with a transitional tennis ball. Strokes and coordination will be developed at this level. Once a player is ready they will move on to the next level – either Green or Junior, depending on age.

JUNIOR COACHING (10yrs – 18yrs) – For children who can play on a full sized court. Technique, tactics, coordination and mental skills developed through a fun coaching programme.

SQUAD (U12 or U18)Sessions by invitation only, aimed at juniors competing in tournaments and teams. To be considered, please contact Mark Love on 07761 602014.

ACADEMY – Juniors from local clubs by invitation.

Please note: Lessons will run whatever the weather, either indoors in the Top Building for mini tennis or as a video analysis session in the coaching block so you get the most out of your tennis lessons. Players should wear warm clothes during winter months as the weather is normally dry but a little cold.

Lessons include use of floodlights when needed at no extra cost.
