Our Coaching Programme has been created in partnership with the National Governing Body for Tennis, the Lawn Tennis Association.
We accept children from the age of 4 up to 17 years old into the coaching programme. We have a variety of courses designed to cater for different ages and abilties that run all year round for 47 weeks of the year.
Players are continously challenged and encouraged to learn the techniques and tactics required to play the game. Our coaches are experienced and able to vary their teaching to make sure all children progress and enjoy the sessions.
Our Weekly Junior Programme is categorised as follows:
LTA Mini Tennis (Tots, Red, Orange, Green) - for players aged three to ten years old
Junior Tennis - for players aged 11 to 14
Teen Tennis - for players aged 15 to 17
LTA Mini Tennis (3 to 10 yrs)
Mini Tennis has 3 exciting levels based on the age of a child:
- Tots Tennis - 3 - 5 years old
- Mini Tennis Red - 5 - 8 years old

Everything has been modified to suit the size of a child with smaller courts, nets and rackets and lower bouncing balls, Mini Tennis offers the perfect introduction to the sport.
There are four stages of Mini Tennis; Tots, Red, Orange and Green, each with their own court size and type of ball. This tailored approach enables players to develop vital skills and techniques at an early age.
