Youth Yellow (Ages 11-17)

Under 14s When at this stage we are keeping the game fun but also are planning for each players future at the club. Local tennis is usually played in doubles format so we will start to learn skill in preparation.


Under 16s This is the final stage of junior coaching before joining in with adult sessions. We have a number of pathways from this stage but this is very much down to each individual. Some choose to keep participating but want to become a leader and help out the coaching team with the younger players, whilst others want to try competing against the adults .
