We run courses for children aged 2–17, packed full of fun games and dynamic training. We want kids to bring all their energy to tennis; no 'quiet please' is needed here. Our specialist coaches will make sure every child has the best start to their tennis journey in a safe and inclusive environment. Sessions cater to all abilities, so no one gets left behind.
