Tennis can be enjoyed by people who have never had any coaching - but with coaching can be enjoyed so much more. Junior members in particular can benefit from regular guidance and honing of technique - this is particularly important for those that are still growing - as poor technique and bad habits can lead to injury.
Coaching is available all year round to all members at the Club. Set courses are available on Saturdays and Sundays, we can also create special “tailor made courses” at times to suit individuals & groups. Whatever your age, level of play, or aspirations a course of lessons is fun and will help you get more from playing this great game!
Hillside Lawn Tennis Club has a thriving junior coaching programme with over 70 players receiving first class coaching each week.
Our Junior Coaching is divided into four specific age groups: Mini Tennis Red (3-8 years), Mini Tennis Orange (9 years and under), Mini Tennis Green (10 years and under) and Junior Tennis (11-18 years).
Each age group uses a different colour ball, a different size court and a different size racket. The group lesson courses enable juniors to learn all the techniques and tactics needed to improve their game in addition to learning the rules of tennis
Our sessions, which run on Saturday mornings are 45 minutes long for Mini Red and Mini Orange and an hour for Mini Green and Junior tennis. The sessions are booked in blocks of 6 and cost £4.00 per session for members and £6.00 per session for non-members. We also offer the first lesson free of charge as a 'taster' session.
