We offer a comprehensive tennis coaching program at Chiseldon Tennis Club.
The Tennis Coaching varies from Group Coaching to Individual Coaching for both Adults and Children. Each week we have a coaching theme that is mirrored across all of the tennis clubs and is delivered by an excellent team of tennis coaches.
- Tots is for 2-4 year olds and is all about having fun. We do the lesson to a story with lots of different activities, all tennis specific. The lesson is usually 30 minutes long and is designed to help Agility, balance, coordination, and speed. It’s a great way to get your youngsters in to tennis.
Mini Red 8 & Under
- Mini Tennis Red is for players aged 8 and under. It is played on small courts with short rackets and soft balls. It’s just like the real game and gives players opportunities to have long rallies and play different types of shots.
Mini Orange 9 and Under
- Mini Tennis Orange is a great way for players to continue their progress from Mini Tennis Red and is for players aged 8 and 9. It is played with shorter rackets, softer balls and courts are bigger and wider than the red stage but still smaller than full-size tennis courts allowing players to develop a rounded game whilst learning a range of techniques and tactics. It is the next stage before playing on a full sized court and helps players develop different shots and tactics.
Mini Green 10 and Under
- Mini Tennis Green is a great way for players to continue their progress from Mini Tennis Orange. It is played on a full size tennis court, with bigger rackets and balls which are a little softer than yellow balls. It’s the next stage before moving on to full compression yellow balls on a full sized court and helps players develop and improve all aspects of their game.
Juniors 10 and Over
- Yellow ball is for players aged 11 and over. It is played on a full tennis court, with full size rackets and full compression yellow balls. This is the last stage of your childs development.
