TOTS TENNIS

Thursdays 13:30 - 14:15

Age 3-5 £4 per class pay as you go

Designed to teach young players the basics using fun activities & energetic games to develop  coordination, agility, and racket and ball skills.

Each child must be accompanied by an adult on court with them to help them with various activities.


P1 - P2: TENNIS YOUTH RED -

Saturday 09:00 – 10:00 

Friday 15:30 - 16:30

Red is for players 8 and under. It is played on smaller courts with short rackets and softer balls. It’s just like the real game and gives players opportunities to have rallies and play different types of shots.


P3 - P4 : TENNIS YOUTH ORANGE - 

Saturday 10:00 – 11:00

Friday  16:30 - 17:30

Orange is a great way for players to continue their progress from Red. It is played with short rackets, softer balls but courts are bigger and wider than the red stage yet still smaller than full-size tennis courts allowing players to develop a rounded game whilst learning a range of techniques and tactics.

 

P5 - P6:TENNIS YOUTH GREEN -

Saturday 11:00– 12:00 noon

Friday 17:30 - 18.30

Green tennis is a great way for players to continue their progress from  Orange and is played with low compression green balls on a full-size tennis court.

 

P7 - S1-6 to (U18)TENNIS YOUTH YELLOW

Saturday 12:00 noon - 13:00 

Friday 17:30 - 18.30

Yellow ball tennis is for those aged 11 and upwards and continues the players skills and knowledge of the game.

The cost for all primary and older coaching sessions is £5 per club member and £7 for non-club members and is paid when you arrive for your coaching session.
