Juniors

The club has a thriving junior section of over 60 members. A mix-in evening is held every Friday at the club when all 4 courts are made available. Group coaching takes place for 4 hours every Saturday morning.

Saturday schedule is:

  • 9am to 10am - for 5 to 8 years old - using red balls
  • 10am to 11am - for 9 to 10 years old - using orange balls
  • 11am to 12pm - for 10 to 11 years old - using green balls
  • 12pm to 1pm - for 12 years old and above - using normal balls

The nature of the junior section is such that there is a continuing change of membership. Youngsters go away to university, college or work and take with them the knowledge and enjoyment gained from tennis at our club.

Each year the percentage of new members can be as high as 30% or more.

Some members are too young to play on Friday mix-in evening but they play at other times with friends and parents. They progress from the start to full junior membership and then, hopefully full adult membership. Many youngsters represent the club in Juniors matches and several have recently progressed to play in senior matches.
