There is a huge amount on offer for our junior members!
There is a huge amount on offer for our younger players. We provide coaching to Tots, Minis and Juniors on Saturday morning ‘Pay and Play’, which run all through the year. Tennis Camps are organised during half terms and summer holidays. We provide curriculum based tennis to our home schooled children during term time, and our after school groups which run every day of the week during term time.
Competitions are organised throughout the winter and summer months this gives our Juniors plenty of opportunity to practise match play at an entry level, play competitive tennis and for some competitions, gain confidence in organising matches for themselves.

OUR YOUNG COACHES AND LEADERS
We have a growing group of teenagers who have been playing here since they were Minis and Juniors. We continue to coach them through to their level 1 Coaching qualifications and are encouraged to become Tennis Leaders, assisting our senior coaches. We are very proud of how well they have all done and especially proud of the girl coaches who managed to break the Guiness Book of Records for coaching non stop for 60 hours and in doing so managed to raise £3000 for charity. The number of girl coaches we have is exceptional and this was highlighted by the BBC when they interviewed the girls during Wimbledon 2015.
