Junior Tennis

The club welcomes and encourages juniors for competitive and fun tennis for all with a friendly modern vibe.

For Junior players we offer tennis events and fun days to grow tennis participation and encourage more regular involvement with the club throughout the season. Juniors can also join coaching sessions and play with other members.

JUNIOR COORDINATOR NEEDED - The club runs Junior tournaments each year and also encourages junior tennis between members. These events need family support to make them as much fun for everybody as possible. If you feel that you can become a ‘Junior co-ordinator’ to help conversations between families please email coaching@sonningtennis.com for more information.

Safeguarding and Child Protection - See our policies page for information on Safeguarding and Child Protection

Juniors Code of Conduct - junior members and parents should familiarise themselves with the club's Junior Code of Conduct

Court Booking - junior members are welcome to book courts, via the club's court booking system 

What do I need to do?

  • Under 13s should always be supervised either by a member adult on court or non-member adult beside the court to ensure club rules are followed
  • Please book a court before turning up to play to avoid unnecessary journeys (parents / adults need to book the court for their junior members - the court booking account will have been set up for the parent to login - please contact membership@sonningtennis.com if you need help)
