Junior Coaching

At PLTC we run junior coaching programmes that follow closely the North Somerset school term.  During school holidays  we often run fun tennis holiday camps for children aged 4 to 10 years. 

Our Junior coaching programme is designed for children of all ages and abilities. The programme follows the LTA mini tennis structure with different ball colours for the correct age group. 

Tots tennis 3-5 years: A fun fast session of just 30 minutes to develop basic hand eye coordination and racket ball skills.

Red Ball 5-8 years: A 60 minute session using mini red balls on a shorter court. Working on stroke development, rallying skills, serving and introducing point play and basic rules.

Orange Ball 9-10 years: A 60 minute session desgined to further improve their rallying skills on a bigger court. This session will contiune to work on technical, physical and tactical aspects of the game.

Yellow Ball 12+ years: A 60 minute session that incoperates all aspects of the game, leading on to full club and tournament play.
