What is LTA Youth?

LTA Youth is a fresh, modern and comprehensive coaching programme for kids aged 4 - 18 years.


The programme will help make tennis more relevant, accessible, welcoming and enjoyable for more kids.


We know that the younger a child picks up a tennis racket, the more likely they are to continue to play throughout their lives.


Sessions need to be fun, dynamic and provide kids with a sense of progression.

About Our LTA Youth Courses

We provide everything your child will need to attend one of our courses such as a tennis racket. Below you will find the next available LTA Youth courses. If you have any questions please contact us and we will be happy to help you.

LTA Youth - Blue Stage

Kids aged 4-6 years will improve their balance, agility and coordination through fun games while learning how to play the sport we love.


At this stage it’s not about winning or losing, it’s getting to grips with the basics.


LTA Youth - Red Stage

Kids aged 6-8 years start to practise overarm serves, volleys and learn how to rally, whilst developing their coordination, balance, speed and agility.


Still, with soft balls and small courts, they'll be introduced to relaxed competition too. 


LTA Youth - Orange Stage

Kids aged 8-9 years are converted into more than just one-shot wonders. Time to throw in some tactics, problem-solving and guides to sportsmanship and leadership.


They'll know all of the rules and will be serving and returning.


LTA Youth - Green Stage

It’s time for kids aged 9-10 years to play on full-size courts. Now it’s all about growing their game by fine-tuning and refining the techniques they’ve learned so far.


Kids should now be in a position to act more independently on court.


LTA Youth - Yellow Stage

For kids aged 10-18 years, it’s all about playing on a full-size court with the same size balls the pros use.


Kids will continue to explore different styles on court and start to choose their own.


By this point, we hope kids will be tennis players and fans of the game for life!

You will see the School entrance 350 yards on your right-hand side. If you find that the main gate is closed, the grey keypad is a 4-digit code (you will need to contact us for this).


Once you have entered the school grounds follow the road always heading right and passing all the school buildings which should be on your left hand side.


After 1-2mins you will arrive at a carpark in the north area of the school, the courts are located behind the clubhouse building – up a few steps.
