  • Played with specialised balls, incorporating coordination and footwork skills enabling control of the body & racquet head

  • Courses are held after school during term time or at weekends

  • Courses are over an 8 to 12 week period of 45 minutes or 1 hour duration each week

  • However, it is normal for these courses to be attended by 7 to 14 year olds. Older juniors often prefer to join the Adult Beginner courses - see the Adult Coaching Programme

  • Courses are ideal for the complete beginner or player wishing to learn the correct technique for the 3 most important strokes of the game

  • Courses are held during school holidays and during half-terms

  • Squads meet at the same time each week, usually for 1 hour

  • Squad D = for players still developing sound technique and not able to rally properly other than against the coach
  • Squad C = for players who can rally to each other and are starting to learn good strategy whilst developing better strokes
  • Squad B = for players who play well but are learning game plans, speciality strokes and more advanced strategies
  • Squad A = for fairly advanced players, and experienced and successful tournament players
