At Cleeve Hill Tennis Club we have a thriving junior coaching program, run by our experienced and enthusiastic coaching team.
Coaching sessions run Saturday mornings for children aged 5 to 16. Sessions last one hour and run between 9am and 1pm. Beginners start at 9am, focusing on coordination and basic skills, before progressing through the groups up to the development squad at 12pm. Juniors have access to the courts any time to practice and play outside of coaching sessions.
We have 4 coaches all holding current Lawn Tennis Association approved coaching qualifications. Across the morning each group containing a maximum of 8 children will usually be taken by two coaches ensuring high individual focus to help skills progress.
We also encourage juniors to partake in competitive play. This includes our annual Junior Singles Tournament and our involvement in the Road To Wimbledon and Aegon National Club League competitions.
The club has a great record of retaining juniors from coaching and eventually integrating them into the main senior club. Once juniors have reached the necessary standard and maturity they are invited to social club play evenings. They then naturally progress to joining in club tournaments and playing for the senior league teams.
Junior Coaching is £TBC
This includes approximately 38 weeks of coaching and membership of the club, with the opportunity to use the courts to practice or play matches at other times.
