Following the LTA guidance for small group coaching Stephen and Callum have been providing a short programme of free coaching for juniors. They have demonstrated that you can follow the social distancing guidelines and still have an effective and fun tennis session.
We are now ready to start a proper junior coaching programme building on the experience of our taster sessions. See below for a 4 week follow-on programme. We are maintaining the standard "member" rate of £6.50/hour even though the group size is small. We ask that juniors taking these places also join the club; £25.00 for the year, book park courts for free, maintain the member discount of £2.00 per session for any more coaching during the year.
Parents are invited to note that the club’s Reaching Out Scheme provides completely free coaching for juniors of age 4 to 18 from low-income families, and for adopted children and children in foster care. We also provide free club membership for these children.
This scheme has now been extended until March 2021 to juniors from families where a parent has been furloughed or made redundant due to Covid-19.
If you are a parent or guardian that qualifies (or is likely to qualify on starting school) for Pupil Premium funding, then you are likely to be eligible for the scheme.
Please speak confidentially to Stephen Marcelle and tell him that your child has qualified (or is likely to qualify) for the scheme. There will be no need to provide any written evidence.

Half-price club membership is also available for adults from low-income families (see the club web site for details) so you could join as a family at significantly reduced cost.
Or; why not get a Community Season Ticket for just £50 a year and play whenever you like on the Community Courts?
Have a look below and book your children in.
Please also have a look at club membership. Our packages offer excellent value; as much tennis as you want for only £1.50-£3.00 a week depending on the package you chose.
Adult membership enables children in that household to join for free.
Please do speak to Stephen before using the online booking tool below
