Mini Tennis coaching & squad
Children between 5 and 10-years-old can enjoy tennis with this exciting programme from the LTA. With smaller courts, nets, rackets and lower bouncing balls, LTA Mini Tennis offers the perfect introduction to the sport, with all the fun and energy of the real thing.
Intermediate & Teen groups
This is the follow-on group after Mini Tennis Green, playing with the full ball and working on improving their matchplay and tactics. It's a fun, social group for both boys and girls to enjoy a game of tennis whilst staying fit and improving their technique.
Junior & Senior academies
Junior Academy is for children wanting to take up the full game after Mini Tennis, playing twice a week and starting to play matches. Senior Academy is for kids (aged 14+) looking for a challenge, playing regularly for/at the club and competing at weekends in competition.
TOTs Tennis: 3-5yrs
Children will receive a 45minute lesson based around ABCs (agility, balance and c0-ordination skills). These sessions are fun-based and are an introduction into sport for children.
Mini Red: 5-8yrs
LTA structured program designed to improve players technique and physical attributes. Players use a small court together with equipment that is designed to improve learning.
Mini Orange: 8-10yrs
Mini Orange Tennis is structured the same way as Mini Red Tennis but is played on a 3/4 court with slightly harder tennis balls and racquets.

Teen Tennis: 12-16yrs
Like Mini Green Tennis, training is on a full size tennis court except normal yellow balls are used as opposed to the lighter green balls used in the younger age category.
