Jo Chapman - Junior Liaison Officer

We have over 115 junior members and 80 mini tennis members making up our junior section. Members range from four years old to eighteen and they have the opportunity to be involved in many different ways. Our coaching team offers individual or group sessions for those who wish to improve their game and for complete beginners. Our mini tennis sessions, for the younger juniors, are fun and active and a great way to begin to learn the basics. Tennis camps are run during school holidays for all age groups. This year the Club is entering 11 teams into the junior AEGON team tennis leagues covering all age groups from U8 to U18 so that the more competitive members have the opportunity to face other Clubs. In addition, we enter the U14 Road to Wimbledon boys and girls events, and organise several friendly matches against various schools and clubs. Several of our stronger juniors are also included in our adult teams and are encouraged to attend match practice with their team members. In the school holidays we endeavour to keep the juniors busy by organising mini competitions or special events. Our most popular and exciting week of the year is the Junior Summer Tournament which always runs in the first full week of the school summer holiday. We also have regular mixed senior and junior events, pitting the skills of young and old, great fun for all involved. The senior club tournament is played from June to September and is open to junior players as well. In recent years juniors have performed well in the club tournament – with some now having their names on the senior honours board in the club house.
