Under the guidance of our experienced full time and part time coaches, Welwyn Tennis Club has a thriving junior section. We take new recruits as young as 4½ years old and offer guidance and courses right up to adulthood.
We also operate a ‘Schools Outreach’ programme in many of the local junior schools. For eight weeks each term we run 40 minute sessions at the schools for Mini-Red tennis and also have an ongoing talent-spotting policy supported by the LTA. In this way we hope to identify good athletes and encourage parents to help their children to achieve excellence in tennis.
Club-based coaching starts with Mini-Red tennis, using a smaller court, soft balls and small rackets. This progresses through Mini-Orange and Mini-Green, which uses a full sized court, and finally to normal tennis as we know it.
During term time, Mini-Red Saturday Morning sessions, starting at 9:00am, are ideal for newcomers who can attend one 5-6 week series before having to join the club. Mini-Red sessions are also run on Monday and Tuesday afternoons at 4:00pm.
Other squads are run during the week for Mini-Red, Orange and Green and Friday Club Night is a popular event running from 5-6:15pm for Mini tennis and 6:15 - 7:30 for older Juniors up to 16 years old. The Tuck Shop is also a popular part of Club-Nights!
Junior sessions for 11 years and upwards are run at 5:00pm during the week.
