Coaching

The coaching team is led by our Head Coach Tom Carlton who is a fully qualified LTA level 5 coach and  is also a regular playing member at the club. Sam Carlton, James Carlton & Daniel Shearing (Level 3), Emma Carlton, Nick Sparks, Charlotte Nudd and Toby Sainter (all Level 2) make up the coaching team. We also have a fantastic group of Tennis Leaders and Level 1 coaching assistants who help at sessions.

The coaching programme caters for juniors and adult, offering individual and group sessions tailored to age and ability. Children between three and ten years old follow the LTA mini tennis stages which use smaller courts, nets and rackets and lower bouncing balls to deliver 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. To learn more about Mini Tennis Click the link - http://www3.lta.org.uk/LTA-Mini-Tennis/ 

The junior programme runs on a termly basis and operates on weekdays after school and on Saturday mornings. Tots Tennis Sessions for 3-5yrs old also run on Saturday and Sunday mornings. The coaching team also run matchplay sessions and a junior club championship. Holiday camps are run during school holidays & half-term breaks.

Group lessons for adults takes place on Wednesday and Friday mornings and Friday evening. Individual sessions are available by arrangement with the coaching team.
