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 4 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.

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 has 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” with a free one hour group session. These taster sessions are available to children of all abilities, from absolute beginners to those who have played the game. Your child will be invited to attend a suitable one hour squad. Allowing ample time to observe how your child gets on, and for you to talk to a coach. After the session, we will be able to tell you, the most suitable squads we have available. Taster sessions need to be booked in advance.


Junior Private Lessons

For intermediate and advance players, who want to focus on a specific aspect of their game or to take them to the next level. Tailored to your specific requirements and arranged at a time to suit you.
