Junior Tennis

“I believe tennis is a skill for life” Keith Brogan. Head Coach ”as a Club we want people to be technically strong but also good sportsmen on and off the court “. The Club offers a great place in a safe environment to meet and play. Saturday afternoon is a good time for senior juniors to play and traditionally they have been welcomed into social tennis. The benefits of being a Junior member are:

  • A place to play tennis
  • A junior pizza night
  • Priority for coaching and reduced fees
  • Competitions, including the Road to Wimbledon
  • Team Tennis
  • Junior membership for over 14 years is around £1 a week
  • e mail – coaching@gardenstennis.co.uk

 

NEW –  We have now started a Junior Box League programme which will run in exactly the same format as the adult box leagues. Matches will be played over 12 games so each match will generally not take longer than an hour. The score in the match could be anything from 12 -0 to 6 all and decided on a tie break.

Initial seedings/gradings will be based on how long your child has been playing tennis for and after a couple of series the children will find their appropriate level.

In order to join we are looking for children aged 10-16 and they must be able to serve on a normal sized tennis court and understand how to score.  All children under sixteen can join for free as a linked member to an Adult membership, please contact the Membership Secretary at membership@gardenstennis.co.uk if you have any questions about membership.

To join the next series or withdraw temporarily due to an injury etc. please email Perry Stimpson on perrystimpson@btinternet.com or call him on 07904 079339.  Perry will ensure your entry into the next box league series.
