LTA Youth Start – also known as Minis

Mini courses for children aged 4 to 11, more information can be found here

This is a fun starter course for children who have never played the sport before, or may have played very little. Packed full of fun games and training drills, it also gives parents the chance to join in too.

We will help kids improve their balance, agility and co-ordination while teaching them about the sport we love. At this stage it’s not about winning or losing, it’s just getting to grips with the basics.

Playing on a full size court with the same size balls the pros use, kids will continue to explore different styles on the court, and start to choose their own.
