To view our coaching timetable for Juniors (and Adults), please click here.
There is a huge amount on offer for our junior members!
Competitions are organised throughout the Winter and Summer months. This gives our juniors plenty of opportunity to practise match play at an entry level, play competitive tennis and, for some competitions, get confidence in organising matches for themselves!
During the school holidays the coaching team arranges camps, tournaments and other fun events.
JUNIOR COACHING PROGRAMME
Junior tennis is split into 4 levels:
- mini red which is aimed at children aged 4 – 8
- mini orange which is for children aged 8 and 9
- mini green which is predominantly for 10 year-olds
- yellow balls or normal full tennis for ages 11+.
We currently have several after-school groups and training squads for all 4 levels. There is a 40% discount on 2nd child, and anyone wishing to attend a 2nd Squad can do so for an additonal cost of £25.
Experienced juniors are encouraged to become Tennis Leaders. This involves participating in training to enable them to help the senior coaches with junior tennis activities.

Tots tennis is back! Sessions will be running on Fridays from 1.45pm until 2.30pm, starting from Friday the 20th of April. Encourage your tots to develop their hand/eye coordination with lots of fun and engaging activities. Contact James Dry on 07747813487 to book your place, or pop alomng on the day. £5 per session.
SATURDAY MORNING COACHING
On Saturday morning the club opens its doors to non-member juniors. There are two age/ability groups: 3-4 years-old & 4-8 years-old. These sessions are inexpensive (£3.50 for members, £4.00 for non-members) and are run on a turn up and play format. The sessions are fun and designed to give children an exciting hour of tennis. It's a great way for youngsters to come and try out the sport. Many young people at the club have been playing since coming along to the first session aged 3! Saturday morning sessions run throughout the year.
FRIDAY JUNIOR NIGHT
Junior night is held on Fridays from 6pm until 8pm. It is for members only and is for youngsters aged 9 and above. It includes 1 hour of fun group coaching followed by 1 hour of table tennis and games in the clubhouse. A very popular night which many of our youngsters come and enjoy.
