Saturday Morning Junior Tennis

lta youth tennis coaching

The LTA Youth tennis coaching courses are ran by our team of accredited tennis coaches, and are the best way for children of all ages and abilities to get into tennis or improve their skills.

Of course, there’s also the added benefits of meeting new friends and exercising in the fresh air!

The LTA Youth courses (including Tennis for Kids) at Exeter Golf and Country Club are compliant with COVID-19 guidelines for playing tennis – coaches have made necessary adaptations to classes in line with social distancing.

 

LTA YOUTH TENNIS COACHING

It’s not just about tennis. It’s about kids improving mentally and physically, on and off the court.

Never held a racket? No problem, our specially trained LTA Youth 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.

course dates

Children’s tennis coaching courses take place on Saturdays, starting on 5th September.  The 14 week courses ends on 12th December.

 

9.30am-10.15am: Blue (age 4-6)

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.

 

10.15am-11.00am: Red (6-8)

This looks a bit more like the tennis you know; overarm serves, rallies, scoring. Kids can use their new knowledge to play in competitions as teams or individuals. It’s still soft balls and small courts but they’re learning everything they’ll need for the game ahead.

 

11.00am-12.00pm: Orange/Green (8-11)

All the skills they’ve been learning are turning them into tennis Titans. Time to throw in some tactics, extra techniques, problem-solving and leadership too; they’re becoming Mini Muzza’s before your eyes.

At the Yellow stage, children are now playing on a full size court with the balls the professionals use. Children will continue to explore different game styles and start to find their own. They will evolve through well-rounded motor skills development whilst improving their physical capacities.
