    TUESDAY 4.15 - 5.15pm & SATURDAY 9 - 10am (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.


    TUESDAY 4.15 - 5.15pm & SATURDAY 10 - 11am (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.


    FRIDAY 5.30 - 6.30pm & SATURDAY 10 - 11am (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.


    FRIDAY 5.30 - 6.30pm & SATURDAY 10 - 11am (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. 


    WEDNESDAY 5 - 6pm & SATURDAY 12 - 1pm (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.
