Ready, steady, smash!
Kids from 2-10 years old get off to a flying start with our expert-led junior tennis programme developed with the Lawn Tennis Association (LTA). From mini champs to first timers, kids of all abilities are well looked after, and no one is left out. They’ll progress through four levels each in the red, orange and green zones, learning new skills, making new friends and gaining confidence. 2-5 year olds get targeted support to help develop their game with our Tiny Active Aces programme.
Expert coaches introduce fun team games and basic strokes using a large sponge ball, smaller net and supersized racket. There are stickers and certificates to encourage and reward everyone’s effort. Some hot shots fast track through the colours but all kids eventually learn techniques, tactics and strategy graduating to a full size court and later, our Active Aces programme.
All tennis coaches are level 3 LTA qualified or above and Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) checked.
In addition to great coaching, here’s what our Mini Active Aces can look forward to:
Tennis Camps - Keep kids aged 5-10 occupied during the school holidays. They’ll learn a new skill, make new friends and have loads of fun along the way.
