General Information about Junior Coaching

Junior coaching caters for ages 4-18 years and the terms are usually spring and autumn and can range from 6-8 weeks in duration. Juniors coaching groups are matched by age and tennis experience.

The benefits of playing the game from childhood are immense both from a physical and psychological aspect, providing skills that can be taken with them through life. Our coaching programme focuses on introducing the game to children in a positive and technically sound manner.

The coaching programme covers every aspect of the game, primarily technical, tactical and physical. We will work on your child’s agility, balance, coordination and speed, and build a sound foundation on which to build the complete game.
