Our Junior Tennis programme

Our Junior programme, under the guidance of our qualified LTA Coaches offers clear progressions for players as they get older or as their game improves.  Starting with tots groups for pre-schoolers, we follow the LTA Youth system, going through the red, orange and green ball colours before players move up to the full ball.

The coaches have a  good track records working with children, are enthusiastic about teaching tennis and most importantly care about their role in teaching the future of tennis.

They ensure the student to coach ratio as low as possible to guarantee that every child, regardless of ability level or ambition, is given real attention and is never left out.

Our coaches always keep to remain fully up todate with regard to ongoing changes and developments, which benefit both children and adults.

For further and up to date inofmration contact Head Coach  Simon Pethybridge.
