LTA YOUTH

Tennis coaching for 4 to 16 year olds.

There are 5 stages for children to complete: BLUE, RED, ORANGE, GREEN & YELLOW.

BLUE

4 to 6 year olds

Young kids are bundles of energy just running around without a care in the world. But the programme is designed to finesse their fine motor skills like balance, agility and coordination. At this stage it’s not about winning or losing but just getting to grips with the basics.

10&U COURT SIZES

Red: 12m x 6m

Orange: 18m x 6.5m

Green: 23m x 8m

Our lessons are open to all abilities and include skills that are transferable to all sports. 

Each week has it's own theme for example, approaching the net. 

Each lesson is broken into 4 areas: 

  1. Warm Up: Pulse raiser followed by agility, balance, coordination and speed exercises. Finishing with Racket skills.

  2. Challenge: Linked or conditioned to the theme of the week, players will be assessed to highlight areas to improve.

  3. Improve: Players will progress through drills to improve in areas related to the them of the week.

  4. Serve: Players will have approximately 5-10 minutes in every lesson to practice their serve as its the most important shot. 

  5. Compete: Either small matches or a fun game to finish the lesson. 

TEAM COMPETITION

With our link with Prestbury Tennis Club, we are able to enter teams in The LTA National League. Teams are made of 4 players and include 2 Singles matches and one doubles match for each player.

Children receive sticker books to help them track their progress. Effort stickers are given every week for players who do their best on court and skills stickers are awarded for completed aspects of their tennis. 

FOR EACH LESSON, PLAYERS NEED:

  • Water Bottle

  • Trainers (avoid Astros if possible)
