Through funding from Tennis Wales and the Lawn Tennis Association, we run regular County Training for junior players across the South of Wales.
We host monthly County Training for junior players in the South of Wales in the following age groups;
- 8 & Under
- 9 & Under
- 12 & Under
- 10 & Under
- 14 & Under
- 18 & Under
This new programme will see the best players in the county coming together to train with each other in a best verses best environment which should optimise their development and, for those who continue to progress, achieve county representation in identified team events.
The training will see players training and sparring with each other on a regular basis to complement and support their home training base. This is designed to provide local, affordable high quality training for identified players in a transformative environment. It will be high intensity, fun and group based. The programme is invitational and delivered on a monthly basis (10 sessions per year for all age groups apart from the U18 age groups). This training opportunity is designed to support a home coaching programme and is positioned as County Training and not county coaching. This is a subtle, but essential distinction, to ensure County Training is delivered consistently across the country, as it is intended to be an early stepping stone on the LTA Player Pathway.
So what does this mean for South Wales? Well we have been busy putting the new pathway together. The Invites have gone out and players have been booking onto and attending the first training sessions of the year with a strong coaching team in place to support players on a monthly basis.
