Junior Group Coaching

LTA Youth Start: Who’s ready to Level Up? LTA Youth Start is for kids aged 4 - 11 years who are new to tennis. We’ll help teach kids new life skills, developing them as both players and people. Six 1-hour tennis lessons plus a racket, tennis balls, wrist bands and a t-shirt are included!

We do not have any LTA Youth Start courses scheduled at the moment

LTA Youth: Play your way - a progressive tennis programme for ages 4 - 17.  Although we’ve assigned ages to each stage, this is just a guide.

Blue (4-6 years) This is an introduction to tennis. Here, we’ll help kids improve their balance, agility and co-ordination while teaching them about the sport we love. At this stage it’s not about winning or losing, it’s just getting to grips with the basics.

Red (6-8 years) This will look a bit more like the tennis you know. You’ll see overarm serves, rallies and volleys. Coaches will help children to further develop their co-ordination, balance and speed. We’ll introduce relaxed competition here too.

Orange (8-9 years) Time to throw in some tactics, problem-solving, and guides to sportsmanship and leadership. At this stage children will know all of the rules and will be serving and returning in matches.

Green (9-10 years) This is the big one. It’s time for kids to play on full size courts. Now it’s all about growing their game by fine tuning and refining the techniques they’ve learned so far. 

Yellow (age 10+) Time to find your game. Playing on a full size court with the same size balls the pros use, kids will continue to explore different styles on the court, and start to choose their own.
