JUNIORS

 

Downswood Lawn Tennis Club has an active and vibrant junior section. 

Group coaching sessions are held on Saturday mornings,  Monday evenings and Friday evenings.  Sessions are arranged by age and ability. The cost is in addition to the Club membership fee.

The Club has a qualified Welfare Officer, Dr Amanda Free, who is responsible for implementing the Club's Safeguarding Policy.

Juniors 6yrs and under can attend the coaching courses but are not required to pay a Club membership fee.

Juniors from 7-18yrs pay the appropriate Club membership fee - see below. They can attend the coaching courses, play at the supervised Friday evening junior social tennis session and when there is a free court.
