Junior Coaching

Junior Programme

At SE Tennis we run various coaching programmes for children age 3 and over. Catering to all abilities – from those who have never picked up a racket, to those wishing to improve their game. For more advanced players, we have specially designed programmes to help them achieve their goals. Whether it’s for trying a new sport, meeting new friends, keeping fit or reaching one’s full potential – our LTA Accredited coaches, will provide a blend of fun and competitive coaching to help meet your requirements. We offer both GROUP and INDIVIDUAL coaching for all ages and abilities.

Junior Group Coaching


Our group coaching sessions are held after school and at the week-end.

AGES 3 to 10 YEARS:

Our younger players are coached using shorter rackets, lower bouncing balls and lower nets. The groups are divided as follows:

Mini Red Ball – 8 and under
Mini Orange Ball – 8 to 9 years
Mini Green Ball – 10 years.


Older children are placed in squads according to their ability and experience.

Our aim is for all our juniors to develop their skills, improve and enjoy their game, whilst making new friends and building all round confidence.

With a maximum of 8 players to 1 LTA qualified coach in each squad, enables our coaches to focus on every child receiving rewarding, challenging and fun sessions – and learning quicker!

We have squads for all abilities: Beginners, Improvers, Advanced and Performance players


The cost of group coaching is based on the number of hours of coaching a child attend in a week, combined with the number of weeks in the term. A child may join a squad at any time during the term, subject to availability. For one hours coaching per week the cost is £10. For more than one hour per week, the cost is £8 per hour.


Why not “try before you buy” and come to a 30-minute assessment session – available to all ages and abilities? Ample time to observe how your child gets on, and time to talk the coach about any questions you may. We will be able to tell you, which sessions we have available that would be most suitable for your child. Assessments are held on Saturdays, but you do need to book in advance.
