Introduction to Junior Programme

Our term-time coaching programme caters for players aged 3-18 years old and runs over six days a week.

We follow a structured coaching schedule to ensure we cover all aspects of tennis and this includes numerous competition weeks especially designed for players to have fun competing at whatever level is appropriate for their group.

All sessions run with our strict ratio of no more than six players per coach making sure every player has enough individual attention to achieve their goals.

What the programme includes

Our programme is split into seven different categories:

Tots Tennis - ages 3-5. Maximum of six players in a group. Introduction to tennis with lots of core sporting skills taught as well as the basics needed on a tennis court. Really high tempo and fun. Coach led session.

Mini Red - ages 6-8. From basic technique to matchplay sessions; a lot is covered in Mini Red. Lots of partner work to enhance sending and receiving skills as well as all the tricky bits that are much harder to learn at an older age (looking at you serving actions). Awards from Bronze to Gold to keep players and parents updated on their progress.

Mini Orange - ages 9-10. As the courts get bigger so do our swings so Orange is all about getting used to that pesky big net and court. Every player will have their own half-court at least and a good mixture of technique and tactics can be seen being taught here.

Mini Green - ages 10-11. Full-size courts are in play at Green level so we focus on movement around the court and enough power to reach the baselines.

Yellow Ball Beginner - ages 11+. A great session for players who are a bit rusty or new to our game. It is never too late to start so these sessions help get everyone involved in a structured and fun way.

Yellow Ball Advanced - ages 11+. Our advanced sessions help stronger players stay in an environment that challenges them and allows us as coaches to set tasks that push players to improve.

Development Sessions - Our invite-only sessions are for players looking to take tennis a bit more seriously. With numerous sessions a week and separate camps we love seeing players push themselves and start the road to competition.

Effort required

We run our sessions in a slightly different style to some clubs. Our belief is that tennis is best learned in as realistic an environment as possible. From the age of six, we will help our players learn to rally and compete and there will be times it doesn't look too pretty but we can assure you the end result is worth it all.

We ask all parents to understand that no matter how big or small a rally score, how many matches won or lost we are working in a longer-term strategy to help make tennis players for life and this isn't always possible in one session or term. Tennis is a pretty technical sport and every player is unique so please talk to us if you need any feedback, as you will no doubt know, we love to chat!

“Hello – I just wanted to say thank you for another great year with you. I can only imagine how tricky it’s been to work with the ever-changing rules but you did it.
Sam just absolutely loves coming to your classes. How you manage to get children with the co-ordination of jellyfish to get to the point of having rallies is beyond me….”
Lucy, term time parent

“I can highly recommend the whole team at Teach Me Tennis.
My son (age 7) has attended two so far of the Summer camp sessions and really enjoyed them”.
