Junior/kid's Coaching

The LTA Youth Tennis age group system allows players to join a suitably challenging pathway from any age. Tennis is a difficult but endlessly rewarding game! We encourage players of all ages to at least give it a try.

 

Ages 4-7 (LTA Youth Red)

Friday 4.30-5.30pm, Saturday 9am

This age group gives children a full and comprehensive base to start their tennis journey. They will develop skills such as agility, balance, coordination, whilst developing the required techniques for tennis. There is an emphasis on foundational movements such as throwing, catching, footwork and early preparation which are key to both tennis and general sporting development. Players will understand the basic techniques and how to play points by the time they move up to Mini Tennis Orange.

 

Ages 8-11 (LTA Youth Orange/Green)

Friday 5.30-6.30pm, Saturday 10-11am

Players will focus more on the physical and tactical side of the game. The big court, bouncier balls and competitive aspects of tennis make 'Orange tennis' very rewarding for young players.

When they move up to 'Green tennis' they will have to cover the whole court and have the technique to hit from baseline to baseline. The green balls are easier to hit than a 'full ball', therefore young juniors can still develop their strokes and tactics sufficiently before progressing.

 

Ages 12+ (LTA Youth Yellow) 

Friday 6.30-7.30pm

Juniors over 12 should look to start playing 'full ball' tennis. Players will learn to play singles and doubles competitively and get the full reward from their tactical/technical practice. Above all we are keen to make this enjoyable, as kids enter their teens it's important they see the benefits of their labours, to avoid dropping out of activity!
