Lee Valley Hockey and Tennis Centre is running a series of eight-week, coached courses designed to teach children aged three years and over the basics of tennis.
Led by Lawn Tennis Association qualified coaches, players are taught in group sessions, each lasting between 45 and 60 minutes.
Little Smashers Tots Tennis for three to four year olds
- An eight week course to introduce toddlers to tennis whilst developing their basic skills.
Mini Tennis Red for five to seven year olds
- Ideal for slightly older beginners, the eight week Mini Tennis Red course utilises short racquets, soft balls and smaller courts to get players learning the basics of the game.
Mini Tennis Orange for eight to nine year olds
- An eight week programme of hour long sessions designed to progress players from the Mini Tennis Red course. Courts are bigger and wider, but still smaller than full-size tennis courts, to allow players to develop game play.
Mini Tennis Green for ten year olds
- Played on full size courts, the third course in the Mini Tennis series prepares participants for more confident game play, utilising bigger racquets and balls. Players will further develop and improve all aspects of their game before moving onto the Junior Tennis courses.
Courses are priced from £40 and all equipment is provided by the venue –just bring your own comfortable sports clothing and non-marking trainers or tennis shoes.
