LTA Youth Tennis

We run courses for children aged 4 – 18, packed full of fun games and dynamic training. We want kids to bring all their energy to tennis; no ‘quiet please’ needed here.

Never held a racket? No problem, our professional coaches will adapt to each individual, to help bring out their best in a safe, secure environment. All kids need to bring is their creative energy, because the programme is designed to grow as they do. Smaller courts and softer balls develop into the real deal as they pick up all the skills and know-how they need.

It will take your youngster to the next level; you’ll see it in their confidence, their skills and even their concentration at school. Not to mention keeping them fit and active. Add some healthy competition to teach them about good sportsmanship (because we all have bad days) and you’ve got a set of skills for life.

LTA Youth has six stages:

Start: 4-11 years – Introductory six-week course
Blue: 4-6 years – Learn the basics
Red: 6-8 years – Serve, rally and score
Orange: 8-9 years – Develop a rounded game
Green: 9-10 years – Test your skills
Yellow: 10+ years – Take your skills further

N.B. Although we’ve assigned ages to each stage these are just a guide. We’ll always put kids in the relevant group based on their ability.

Start

(Age 4-11)

This is a fun starter course for children who have never played the sport before, or may have played very little. Packed full of fun games and training drills, it also gives parents the chance to join in too.

Blue Stage

Learn the basics (Age 4-6)

This is an introduction to tennis. Here, we’ll help kids improve their balance, agility and coordination while teaching them about the sport we love. At this stage it’s not about winning or losing, it’s just getting to grips with the basics.

Find a session

Red Stage

Serve, rally and score (Age 6-8)

This will look a bit more like the tennis you know. You’ll see overarm serves, rallies and volleys. Coaches will help children to further develop their co-ordination, balance and speed. We’ll introduce relaxed competition here too.

Find a session

Orange Stage

Develop a rounded game (Age 8-9)

Time to throw in some tactics, problem-solving, and guides to sportsmanship and leadership. At this stage, children will know all of the rules and will be serving and returning in matches.

Find a session

Green Stage

Test your skills (Age 9-10)

This is the big one. It’s time for kids to play on full-size courts. Now it’s all about growing their game by fine tuning and refining the techniques they’ve learned so far.

Find a session

Yellow Stage

Take your skills further (Age 10+)

Time to find your game. Playing on a full-size court with the same size balls the pros use, kids will continue to explore different styles on the court, and start to choose their own.

Private Lessons

private lessonWhat better way to fast track your improvement than with a one-on-one coaching session – an hour (or two) just for you to develop those areas of your game most important to you!

Individual or small group coaching is a great way of accelerating your learning. Tennis can be a challenging game to master and group coaching is a great way to get started. 1:1 time with a qualified coach can help you improve your game over a period of time. Many players like to supplement their group learning sessions with individuals to get the best of both worlds.

Individual coaching with our coaches will accelerate learning, improve confidence, help master technique, offer the opportunity to give your practice or group sessions a focus, and it’s a great workout.

You can choose to go it alone or you may wish to organise a small group (up to 2 players) or play with a friend to share the cost.

To book and for more information please contact us

Adult Coaching

Whether you are a regular club player or a newbie to tennis, we have coaching sessions to accommodate the needs of any adult tennis player.

We provide a complete coaching experience for adult players and have a number of weekly coaching sessions to help you improve your game, meet new friends and improve your fitness.

Coaching sessions run throughout the year for 47 weeks of the year. Players can sign up for our weekly programme by taking out a Coaching Plan. Coaching Plans have been developed to help parents and players spread the cost of coaching in one affordable monthly fee, so everyone can enjoy the benefits of professional tuition.

Overview

Tennis is great fun and is accessible to all ages and skill levels. But there are other benefits to picking up a racket and playing…

As well as serving up plenty of smiles, tennis is good for your physical and mental health. It can help lower body fat while improving muscle toning, strength and flexibility. It can even help you to live longer.

In terms of mental health, exercise is hugely important in maintaining a good state of mind. Playing a game of tennis will release those happy endorphins to help you feel great!

It is also a fantastic way to spend some time with family and friends and will provide you with the opportunity to meet new people.

We offer a complete coaching experience for adult tennis players and even offer two-weeks free, so you can try a couple of group coaching sessions first. We offer group sessions at each level of play, including a range of courses, clinics and drop-in sessions.

Standards Guide

To enjoy tennis, players want to play with people of a similar standard.  We understand this and therefore have adopted a standards guide to help determine which coaching sessions are right for you:

Standard Description
Beginner Players with little, or no, tennis experience. Any beginner tennis course/session will primarily focus on technique and will help you to develop an understanding of the game and the four main strokes (serve, forehand, backhand and volley). Beginner courses/sessions provide support to help players develop their own style and learn about effective body movement for tennis. They may be taken over a number of months or even up to a year to establish a springboard to intermediate level.
Intermediate Players with a sound tennis background and for the ‘Rusty Rackets’ who have played tennis in the past and who want to get back up to speed. These players can play, sustain a rally, and score. Intermediate courses/sessions will allow players to explore effective techniques and aim to develop confidence in playing points.
Advance Advanced is for those more competent players with match-play experience. Advance courses/sessions aim to develop the player’s tactical awareness, physical fitness and mental focus, using high impact training drills and match play.

Holiday Camps

Our Holiday Camps offer a combination of professional coaching, fun games/activities and tennis competition for players of all ages and standards during school holidays.

We create the optimal environment to challenge players at any level of play, whether they want to be the next Roger Federer, looking to try out tennis for the first time, or looking for a fun-filled time on the court.

Players compete in small teams for points over a short series of challenges, with players receiving certificates, stickers, prizes and medals for their efforts! Each holiday camp will have a different Team Challenge fun theme which will guide the fancy dress and sticker concepts for that camp!

We have two types of camps:

  • Mini Camps:  For players aged 5 – 10 years old
  • Junior Camps:  For players aged 11 – 15 years old

FAQs

Below are some frequently asked questions. If you can’t find the answer you’re looking for please contact us and will respond as soon as possible.

 


How do Coaching Plans work?

Coaching Plans give players access to our group coaching programme in one affordable monthly fee. To join a coaching session(s) on our coaching programme you will need to have an active Coaching Plan.

When you start your tennis journey you’ll join us as a Coaching Plan subscriber. A Coaching Plan gives you access to our weekly group coaching programme that runs for 47 weeks per year. You’ll be able to access our holiday camp programmes and competitions and you can book and pay online via our website.

After you’ve been with us for 6-months, you’ll automatically be upgraded to Coaching Plan+. A plus plan gives you free access to our holiday camps for juniors and free access to Grand Slam competition events for adults. You’ll continue to benefit from this free access for as long as you remain an active Coaching Plan+ subscriber.


How do know when I have been upgraded to Coaching Plan+?

We’ll let you know as soon as you have been automatically upgraded to Coaching Plan+ via email. As soon as you have received confirmation from us you’ll be able to book camps and rand Slam events for free online. When booking online all you need to do is select that you are a member and the discount of 100% will be automatically applied!

I’m rejoining and used to hold a Coaching Plan+ subscription, do I get automatically upgraded?


No, sorry! If you are rejoining you’ll need to start off on our Coaching Plan subscription. After 6-months you’ll be automatically upgraded to Coaching Plan+.

I’m currently a Coaching Plan+ subscriber and looking to join an additional player, do they get Coaching Plan+ too?


Afraid not. Each player has their own unique subscription and the additional player would need to join as a Coaching Plan subscriber and they’ll be automatically upgraded after 6-months.

If you are booking camps or competitions for more than one player with different subscriptions, all you need to do is select whether they are a member or non-member. If they are a member (Coaching Plan+) they’ll get the 100% discount applied, if not (Coaching Plan) then they will be a non-member and have to pay for the event.

Do I have to sign up for a minimum term?


No! We are so confident that players will find our coaching enjoyable, affordable and convenient that we offer our Coaching Plans with no fixed term contract.  If in the unlikely event that you would like to cancel your plan, all you have to do is contact us giving us four weeks written a notice to cancel.

If you are a Coaching Plan+ subscriber and decide to cancel, you will lose your free access benefits. If you rejoin at a later date you’ll join as a Coaching Plan subscriber and will have to wait for 6-months to unlock Coaching Plan+

Is there a joining fee?


If you are joining one of our programmes you may be required to become a venue member first.  We’ll let you know if there is a venue membership to pay when you get in touch, but don’t worry our partnered venue membership fees are extremely affordable.

How many times per week should I play?


We encourage players to play at least twice per week to benefit from our coaching. Whether that be attending one coaching session and having a hit with a friend, or attending two coaching sessions per week.

It only costs an extra £20 per month to join a second session per week – we offer this discount as it really helps accelerate and develop your game. Andy Murray didn’t turn pro training once per week!

When registering online you’ll have the option to select two sessions to attend.

Does the programme run during the school holidays?


Yes! Coaching sessions run throughout the year, including during school holidays for 47 weeks of the year. The programme breaks for Bank Holidays, Easter (one-week), Summer (two-weeks during the last week of summer holidays and the first week of the new school term) and during the Christmas break (two weeks).

This helps provide a consistent approach to ensure all players continue to learn and progress on the programme throughout the year.

The majority of adult coaching sessions continue to run throughout the year. There are some cases where morning or lunchtime coaching sessions may be rescheduled if they conflict with junior holiday camps.

What happens if it rains?


In rain or bad weather, the coach will always be at the coaching venue unless it is dangerous for them to travel there such as in heavy snow. During inclement weather conditions, indoor tennis based activities/quizzes will be provided if the venue has facilities (such as a clubhouse). Where there is no indoor facility and the venue is too dangerous to deliver and play tennis the coach will aim to inform all players no later than 30 minutes before the start of each session of the cancellation.  The coach will reschedule sessions or ask you to attend another session on the coaching programme to recoup the lost session.

Is there a pay and play option available?


Sorry, we don’t offer a pay as you play option for our junior programme. Players can join the programme by subscribing to a Coaching Plan. This helps us keep our administration costs down which keeps the costs to players at an affordable level.

We also strongly believe that regular attendance on the programme helps maintain the session suitability for the players alongside supporting players improve with groups of players of similar tennis standards.

What is a LTA Tennis Membership?


All players signing up for a Coaching Plan will be able to access a free Lite LTA Tennis Membership, run by our governing body, the LTA. You will need your tennis number to enter LTA sanctioned tournaments and competitions. You will then be able to view the matches that you have played, and your results, online. You will be notified of a change in your rating or ranking and will also receive monthly updates from The LTA.

Is there any special clothing I need to wear?


We are pretty relaxed, but a sports kit and shoes needs to be worn. We have a nice club kit available to buy if players are interested and you can purchase all your tennis kit from our sister company The Racket Factory – www.theracketfactory.com

Is the equipment provided, and do I need my own racket?


All equipment is provided during our coaching sessions. If you’d like your own racket, your coach will be able to advise you on the best choice for you and provide one to you at a discounted rate. You can always visit our online shop here if you like to purchase a racket sooner! www.theracketfactory.com
