Kiwi Tennis' junior coaching programme can cater for any age or ability, from a complete beginner through to national competitor. We ensure that every child can achieve their full potential and deliver a personalised programme to each and every child we coach.
We are Tennis New Zealand Hot Shots coaches, so for our younger players we ensure they are playing with the correct sized racquets, balls and nets. The programme allows players to fit into the correct group based on ability, whilst it also maintains the flexibility to move players through the various levels as and when they begin to progress.
Once children have a firm understanding of the basics and show an interest, we encourage children to progress to playing Junior Interclub. This is where they really learn how to play and we see a rapid improvement in the game. There are a number of grades at Junior Interclub level and we encourage players to give it a go from beginners to premier players.
Enrolments are asked for in Term 3 (for Term 4 competition) and Term 4 (for Term 1 competition) by the Junior Convenor. Cost for interclub is $50 per term fee ($100 for both terms), paid at time of membership enrolment
