Junior Coaching for Club Members
JUNIOR COACHING HAS STARTED BUT NEW MEMBERS ARE STILL WELCOME
These are held every Saturday morning (weather permitting) in spring and summer:
- early September to mid December
- the end of January to the end of March (approx).
There are three sessions each morning, split by age/ability as follows:
|5 to 8 year olds||8.30 to 9.30am|
|8 to 10 year olds||9.30 to 10.45am|
|11 years + and all interclub players||10.45am to 12.15pm|
Please note that session times may be changed depending on player numbers.
For the first two sessions, we run a developmentally appropriate programme that allows players to spend more time hitting the ball and practising tennis skills, as we use smaller courts with lower compression balls.
For the older and interclub players, full courts are used with standard balls.
Parents are encouraged to get involved with these sessions, our coaches will provide guidance on how you can help.
If you need further information or want to try the club out, please come along to one of our Saturday sessions , or contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org
