Junior Coaching Programme
Warwick Tennis Club has a coaching programme to suit all levels and ages.
We have TennisMark accreditation demonstrating our commitment to the development of junior tennis, with a balance between a fun and a competitive environment. And we believe in starting them early, so our coaching begins from the age of two and a half!
Our coaches are all licensed, DBS checked and first aid trained.
We run comprehensive weekly group coaching programmes, with private lessons also available ( see Coaches page) You do not need to be a member of the Club to enjoy coaching and racquets can be provided. We just ask that you wear suitable footwear.

Tots Tots is aimed at ages 2.5 to 5 years and enables them to learn the basics and have fun - based on the fundamental areas of balance, co-ordination, agility, movement and raquet and ball skills. Tots play with sponge balls and 17 or 19 inch racquets.
Mini Red For 8 and unders. It is played on small courts with short racquets and soft balls. It’s just like the real game and gives players opportunities to have long rallies and play different types of shots. A shorter racquet 43cm – 58 cm (17” – 23”) is recommended depending on the size and strength of the player.
Mini Orange For players progressing from Mini Tennis Red, usually aged 8 and 9. It is played with shorter racquets, softer balls and courts are smaller than a full-size court, allowing players to develop a rounded game whilst learning a range of shots, techniques and tactics.
Mini Green Continuing the progress from Mini Orange it is played on a full size court, with bigger racquets and balls which are a little softer and 25% slower than yellow balls. It’s the next stage before moving on to full compression yellow balls.
Yellow For children aged 10 years and upwards, who play with proper yellow balls on a full size court.
