Junior members have lots of opportunity to play, to improve their game and to meet others who enjoy tennis.

First, there are the junior coaching sessions on Wednesdays and Saturdays (see below). Then there are the organised sessions on Saturdays where we organise matches and games, both single and doubles, for those aged 10 and over. We would like to have enough juniors in the right age groups to be able to field some junior teams in the local junior leagues. A number of our juniors enter local tournaments.

We also have our own junior tournament - see below.


Wednesday evenings 4.00 pm to 6.00 pm

Wednesday evening is juniors’ evening. For most of the year Edward Benson and Luke Sloan offer group coaching sessions  from 4.00 pm through to 6.00 pm. The 4pm session is for 5 to 10-year-olds; and the 5pm session is for 10-year-olds and above. The charge is £4 for members and £5 for non-members.

Saturday mornings 9.30 am to 10.30 am

This session is for those new to tennis who need more practice before they can come to the 10:30 to 12 session. The charge is £4 for members and £5 for non-members.

Saturday mornings 10:30 am to 12 noon

Saturday mornings are reserved for juniors as well. There are organised mathces / tournaments each Saturday .

There is no charge for the 10:30 to 12:00 session on Saturday mornings (except a £3 guest fee for guests). It’s part of the subscription.

If you are:

- Have ideas for making the Club even better for juniors

- Would like to contribute ideas and help organise events for juniors

why not join the junior committee? We are looking for around four juniors to meet and discuss ideas for social events, tournaments, junior teams or anything else you think is important.
