Welcome to our Beauchief Junior Coaching Page. We pride ourselves on having a very passionate, hardworking coaching team who provide a pathway for juniors of all ages and abilities .
For our younger players, we run se ssions using the LTA mini tennis
programme which provides the perfect introduction to the sport for
children aged between three and 10 years. At each stage (shown below) the game is tailored to fit different age groups with different sized courts and balls. From 11 years onwards, juniors move to the yellow full ball game.
Follow the links below or here for booking information or contact Jen Lewis at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Tiny Tots (3-5 years)
Tiny Tennis is for those little nippers who require some fundamental skills with tennis wrapped into it. The session provides lots of different balls skills, balancing an co-ordination games with an introduction to using the racket and hitting over the net.
Mini Red (5-8 years)
Mini Tennis Red is for players aged 8 and under. It is played on small courts with short rackets and soft balls. It’s just like the real game and gives players opportunities to have long rallies and play different types of shots.
Mini Orange (8 & 9 Years)
Mini Tennis Orange is a great way for players to continue their progress from Mini Tennis Red. It is played with appropriately sized rackets, lower pressurized balls with a bigger and wider court. However, the smaller than full-size tennis courts still allows players to develop a rounded game whilst learning a range of techniques and tactics.
Green Ball Tennis (10 years)
Mini Tennis Green is a great way for players to continue their progress from Mini Tennis Orange. It is played on a full size tennis court, with bigger rackets and balls which are a little softer than yellow balls. It’s the next stage before moving on to full compression yellow balls on a full sized court and helps players develop and improve all aspects of their game.
Full Ball Tennis (11+)
Full ball tennis is a great way for players to continue their progress from Mini Tennis Green. It is played on a full size court with full compression yellow balls and is the final stage of junior tennis helping players progress through to adult tennis.
Girls Groups (10+)
We are really focused on attracting more girls to the sport and keeping them playing from junior to senior level. These groups give girls an opportunity to train separately from the boys.
Home Education Sessions
For Home educated children aged 5-16
We are proud of our links to the home schooling community and welcome parents and players to come and get involved at our club.
Tennis Fitness sessions
We run tennis specific fitness sessions which involve movement and strength training to enhance performance on court - these sessions are suitable for all levels of player.
BTC Academy Sessions
The academy is for players (and parents) who are willing to show more commitment to their tennis. With more hours of tennis per week, training camps during the holidays, an expectancy to compete outside of the sessions in tournaments and team events. We also encourage players to have 1-1 sessions where possible to complement their group sessions and match play.
Family Night Fun & Games (All Ages + Adults)
Family Night is a chance for juniors and adults to come and have some fun at the club, let off some steam and socialise. A great way to meet new people at the club and let your hair down. There is no formal coaching involved, just organised fun and games.
We have a team of coaches dedicated to providing high quality 1-1 coaching for those seeking that little extra help with thier game on an individual basis.
