We also offer an Academy Programme for those children who show excellent commitment to their tennis development, and are either looking to compete or are regularly competing in external matches. The overall aim of this Programme is to allow players to feel supported through their development and give them the opportunity to access a programme that matches with their ambitions.

We offer sessions for Orange / Green / Yellow – 1.5 hour session 20 mins Coordination & Footwork 40 mins Technical 30 mins Tactical/Match Play The key thinking is that the player should be spending the number of hours on court which matches their age e.g. a 10-year-old should be averaging 10 hours a week on court.

Within each term the following areas will be worked on; Split Steps & Movement to the ball, Consistency & Precision, Conditioned games, Balance Variation & Disguise Conditioned games, Recovery after Shot, Court Geometry, Decision Making, Match Tightness, Match Play.

Academy Camps run in the holidays, which include 1 hour of coaching, 1 hour of matchplay and 1 hour of Liveball. These are only suitable for our Performance juniors and can be booked HERE.

Our two Performance Coaches Pete and Sam will run all Academy sessions and when the bubble is up these sessions will be held in it to offer continuous coaching.

A 1 hour Liveball session runs for our Academy Yellow Ball players on Saturdays 5-6pm.
