Tennis Coaching for Children
Over 30 coaches work for The Parklangley Club, all of whom are qualified, licensed, DBS checked and have all relevant first aid qualifications. They follow a set programme designed by the LTA to give variety and allow your child to progress at his or her own speed. With smaller courts, nets and rackets and lower bouncing balls, Mini Tennis offers the perfect introduction to the sport, with all the fun and energy of the real thing.
Mini Tots – age 3 to 5 years
Tots is for children aged 3 to 5 years old and enables them to learn the basics and how to enjoy the game through a series of fun activities, based on the fundamental areas of balance, co-ordination, agility, movement and racket and ball skills.
Junior Tennis Coaching: Age 12 years upwards
From about 11 years upwards children are coached with proper tennis balls on a full size court. Maximum class size is 6 on one court, with lessons usually lasting one hour. Children progress through different levels and there is a great deal of flexibility, allowing them to change groups if they progress at a different speed from others in the group.
The club is recognised as the top performance club in the county and children who show particular talent are offered the opportunity to join our performance programme where many children have achieved County, National and International standard. Currently we have 5 internationally ranked players 18+.
