Our coaching team runs coaching sessions for juniors on a Tuesday evening at the club. Through the winter months we head to Bishop Barrington Academy for sessions indoors and under floodlights.

Our current programmes are shown below. If you would like any further information on coaching please drop us an email at [email protected] or visit


Our coaching programmes are ran through the Durham Community Tennis Partnership, who provide a comprehensive programme for children and adults of all ages. 


Youth Blue (2-6yrs) - Learn The Basics

This is an introduction to tennis. Here, we’ll help kids improve their balance, agility and co-ordination while teaching them about the sport we love. At this stage it’s not about winning or losing, it’s just getting to grips with the basics.

Coming Soon




Youth Red (6-8yrs) - Serve, Rally, Score

This will look a bit more like the tennis you know. You’ll see overarm serves, rallies and volleys. Coaches will help children to further develop their co-ordination, balance and speed. We’ll introduce relaxed competition here too.

Enquire --> Tuesday 4:00pm - 4:45pm



Youth Orange (8-9yrs) - Develop A Rounded Game

Time to throw in some tactics, problem-solving, and guides to sportsmanship and leadership. At this stage children will know all of the rules and will be serving and returning in matches.

Enquire --> Tuesday 4:00pm - 4:45pm




Youth Green (9-10yrs) - Test Your Skills

This is the big one. It’s time for kids to play on full size courts. Now it’s all about growing their game by fine tuning and refining the techniques they’ve learned so far. 

Enquire --> Tuesday 4:00pm - 4:45pm




Youth Yellow (10+yrs) - Take Your Skills Further

Time to find your game. Playing on a full size court with the same size balls the pros use, kids will continue to explore different styles on the court, and start to choose their own. Designed for both  beginners and intermediate level. 

Enquire --> Tuesday 4:45-5:45pm
