The tennis skills adapted especially for Pre-School 4-5 year olds. Your child will learn the basics through fun activities based on the fundamental ABCs – Agility, Balance, Coordination & Speed plus racket and ball skills to get them started.
Red 3.30pm Wednesdays –
A specially designed class to introduce & progress the basics of tennis to P1-P3 children. Focus is on enjoyment and active social interaction in a safe and healthy environment.
Orange 4.30pm Wednesdays –
A specially designed class to develop the tennis skills of P4-P5 children. The focus is on enjoyment and active social interaction in a safe and healthy environment. Orange tennis balls are used to allow children to develop the skills they acquired at red ball and continue their tennis journey.
Green / Yellow 5.30 Wednesdays –
A specially designed 1 hour class to develop the tennis skills of P6-P7 children who will be moving on to Yellow Ball. Green & yellow tennis balls are used to allow children to develop their skills and continue their tennis journey to Yellow Ball.
Yellow Ball represents the final stage in the junior tennis journey and the first step on the lifelong journey of trying to master the game of tennis. Juniors will, at this 1 hour class, develop the skills they have learned in Mini Tennis and add in some matchplay and more technical/tactical coaching to speed their development. As always the focus is on fun and social interaction but with a leaning towards the Pathway 2 Performance coaching should the children wish it.
Adult Cardio Tennis – Tuesdays 6.30 – 7.15
These adult sessions, based on member feedback, will focus on cardio each week and provide the opportunity to improve fitness while focusing on tennis specific exercises.
Adult ‘Hitting’ Session – Tuesdays 7.30 -8.30
Purely based on member feedback the one thing we get asked for more than anything is awareness of technical hints and tips while hitting a lot of balls.
This 1 hour class will be run by Coach Iona but the lights will stay on (free of charge!) for a further 30 minutes matchplay to try out the tactics learned.
