Junior Coaching Mon 04th Sep - Sat 16th Dec

Mini Red (8 years and under) is played on small 1/4 courts with 17-23” racquets and soft sponge or red balls. It’s just like the real game, with players having the opportunity for long rallies and participating FUN games and competition.

Mini Orange and Green (10 years and under) is played on a 3/4 court, with soft orange or green balls and 23-26” racquet. Players are now exposed to a longer and wider court (although smaller than full size) allowing players to develop an all round game and develop a range of techniques and tactics.

Juniors (16 and under) move to playing on a full court, players now explore the full game, controlling space and time with the faster ball and developing their own style of play, with full size racquets and yellow ball. With players developing physically, players learn to control the shots and use effective power in their game. Fully utilising the whole court and trading/building with strategy.

Coaching will take place on Mondays Wednesdays and Saturdays throughout the Autumn term (14 weeks).
