Junior Coaching Programme

At Billericay Lawn Tennis Club we are thrilled to offer one of the most comprehensive, high-performing, and well-subscribed junior coaching programmes in Essex. Our first-class junior coaching programme, delivered by award-winning coaches, caters for all ages and abilities from complete beginners to national competitors. We have over 350 mini and junior players playing tennis with us each week, and our performance programme currently supports 20+ players on the LTA County & Regional Pathways and National Age Group Programme.

In our Club section, we cater for children aged 3-18 of all abilities. Groups are organised according to age and ability and take place at convenient times after school on weekdays, and on Saturdays from 9.00am -1.00pm. Our aim is to provide a fun and dynamic environment where every player can progress, challenging fundamental skills, learning technical competencies, and knowing how to WIN on the tennis court! Younger players who progress particularly well will then have the option to move to the performance programme to take their tennis to the next level. 

Individual lessons for mini (3-10) and junior (11-18) players are also available from our fantastic team of coaches.

In our Performance section, we provide training for competition level players aged 6-18. The programme currently supports 20+ players on the LTA County & Regional Pathways and National Age Group Programme, as well as numerous other players who compete in our teams and in LTA graded tournaments. Players typically attend at least two squads per week, supplemented by individual lessons, access to tailored Strength & Conditioning, and off-court & tournament support.

In 2022 we focused much of our attention on the development of the 10 & Under section. We were reselected as an LTA 10U Performance Programme, making us one of 62 venues in Great Britain deemed to be delivering the highest quality coaching and player development in this age group.

We were also chosen as one of only 5 venues in Great Britain to be awarded Tennis First 10 & Under status. This is an elite scheme focused on developing world class players and coaching programmes in the 10 & Under space. By scoring over 30% higher than the four other venues in Scotland, Wales, the South of England and the North of England in a rigorous initial assessment, we are likely to be the flagship venue when the Tennis First ‘Get Ready!’ programme publicly launches next year.
