Mini Tennis Orange/Green (Age 8-10 years)
Mini Tennis Orange & Green is a great way for players to continue their progress from Mini Tennis Red and is for players aged 8 – 10.

It is the next stage before playing on a full sized court and helps players develop different shots and tactics. Sessions are:

- Wednesday 5-6pm
- Thursday 4-5pm
- Saturday 1-2pm

This is tennis on a full court with a normal tennis ball. The technique and skills learnt during the stages of Mini Tennis can now be put into action on the full court. Sessions are:
- Thursday 5-6pm – age 14+
- Thursday 6-7pm – age 11-13
- Saturday 10-11am – age 11-13

Individual coaching is also available for junior players so they can focus on technique and tactical play in a 1 to 1 environment. For more information, please get in touch.
For juniors with budding tennis and athletic ability we offer a programme to provide further opportunities to develop their talent. If you think your child would benefit from this opportunity please contact us to arrange an assessment.
