Junior Coaching Programmes
Our courses are graded by experience, and offer a progression through the various ability levels. They run indoors (essential for continuity) on an all year round basis and are staffed by experienced professional coaches.
STEP 1 - HAND EYE / CO-ORDINATION COURSES LEADING TO MINI TENNIS
Directed at school years 1 & 2. These courses develop the hand eye co-ordination necessary for any ball game. Players are fed through to mini tennis red as they improve.
STEP 2 - MINI-TENNIS RED
The ideal introduction to the game for players progressing from STEP 1 and year 3 & 4 children. Uses a scaled down court, short rackets, and foam balls. Correct technique is taught and the transition to mini orange is made easy.
STEP 3 - MINI-TENNIS ORANGE
Uses orange low compression tennis balls (which are slower) on a scaled down court. For children who have progressed from mini-tennis red and older beginners. Covers essential stroke technique, drills and fun games.
STEP 4 - MINI TENNIS GREEN
Uses green low compression balls (faster than orange) on a full court. Covers technique, developing the rally, games and drills.
STEP 5 - PLAYERS
Using normal tennis balls on a full court. Groups are graded by experience. Some groups offer a longer session introducing more advanced drills and refinement of technique and tactics for players who can rally comfortably.
SQUAD TRAINING PROGRAMME
