Junior Coaching Pathway
Why learn to play tennis at Oxshott?
Attending the Oxshott Coaching programme not only enables your child to learn the game of tennis but also multiple life skills at the same time. From an early age, children focus on building and maintaining friendly relationships with other children at the club and coaches during their lessons. Children also quickly learn that success’ and failure’s happen in sport, from missing and making a forehand in their first lesson to winning and losing tournament finals. They are able to deal with these high’s and low’s in a supportive environment from their peers, coaches and parents.
Throughout a child’s tennis journey they continually build on these important skills while starting to develop new and more complex set of life skills, which include: emotional intelligence, personal development, commitment and communication skills.
The junior tennis pathway at Oxshott offers a comprehensive structure for parents and children to progress depending on each child’s aims and ambitions for their tennis career. Whether they want to be able to play socially with friends or want to play competitively at county and regional level, Oxshott Tennis Club provides the necessary structure and expertise to enable your child to achieve their goals.
At Oxshott Tennis Club our foundation classes are perfect for those learning the game and those looking to play socially. Players are introduced to the fundamental techniques of all strokes that will help them gain confidence in their ability. They will develop their tennis in a fun and exciting environment and enable them to play tennis with other children outside of their lessons.
The team development sessions at Oxshott Tennis Club are for players who have a good understanding of the techniques required to play competitive matches. Children are able to maintain rallies with other players. Coaching sessions continue to develop the correct techniques while beginning to introduce the tactical aspects of playing a tennis match with players competing in matches both internally and externally.
FOCUS PERFORMANCE PROGRAMME
Oxshott Tennis Clubs focus performance sessions begin to hone in on specific areas of tennis that will benefit players as they play and compete more regularly. Focus is applied to correct footwork patterns along with power generation in order to enable maximum effectiveness on court. Players also begin to understand patterns of play which helps them to become more comfortable and successful on the match court.
