Junior Tennis at Club Towers

We have a junior coaching programme at various days and times for all ages and abilities, co-ordinated by highly experienced coaches.

Summer term starts on Monday 15th April so please do speak to the Reception team for more information and how to book.

The sessions available for this term and descriptions for the tennis sessions are outlined below.

Tennis Tots

This is the start of your tennis journey, a 45-minute session which focuses on hand-eye coordination, movement, balance and lots of fun! We ask that parents/guardians stay courtside with their children as we find very young children get the most out of the session when playing together with their family. This is a PAYG session.

Mondays 1pm – 1.45pm.

Mini Red Ball – Ages 4 to 7

Using scaled down courts, this is a perfect age to begin these 55-minute sessions. A fun and energetic way for children to enhance their balance and coordination, while learning basic tennis techniques and tactics. A variety of aids are utilised, with various grades of soft balls, hoops and ladders. In these sessions the coaches will usually divide into three sub-groups as the pace of development requires.

Monday, Wednesday, Thursday and Saturday (various times)

Mini Orange Ball – Ages 8 to 10

This 55-minute session will be the first step onto a larger court for beginners and intermediate players. We develop tactics, technique and movement through drills and playing points. Fun match play starts to sharpen skills. Players may continue to be split into sub-groups according to age and ability.

Monday, Wednesday, Thursday and Saturday (various times)

Green Ball – Ages 9 to 11

This 55-minute session is the first step onto a full court, but otherwise similar to the Mini Orange Ball sessions. Additional focus will be on serving, return of serve and rally development.

Thursdays 5pm

Yellow Ball – Age 12 +

These are drills and practical point-based sessions, preparing the junior to compete at the highest level.  There is regular competitive play at this level The technique and skills you developed through mini tennis can now be put into practice.
