Junior Coaching Programme at Putney LTC.
All sessions have a maximum ratio of 1 coach to 6 players. Each session incorporates technical, tactical, physical and mental aspects of the game. The programme is split into the following age groups:
Tots (Aged 3 – 5 years)
Programme is designed to enable children to learn the basics of tennis. It encourages them to enjoy the game through a series of fun activities based on the fundamental areas of balance, co-ordination, agility, movement and hand-eye coordination.
Red (Aged 5 – 8 years)
Players learn to serve, rally and score with a slow ball, as well as learning the movement and coordination skills required for tennis. Players are encouraged to take part in fun competitions, both in teams and as individuals, with short matches using tie-break scoring.
Green/Orange (Aged 8 – 10 years)
Players can now put their technique and skills into practice on a bigger and wider court with a faster ball which will help to develop all aspects of their game.
Yellow (Aged 11+ years)
Children are now playing on a full-size court with the balls the professionals use. Children will continue to explore different game styles and start to ﬁnd their own. They will evolve through well-rounded motor skills development whilst improving their physical capacities.
