Islington Tennis Centre & Gym offers a wide range of programmes for both junior players and adults looking to develop their tennis skills in a fun and engaging environment.

Junior Tennis Courses

Looking for something to keep the children active, entertained and learning new skills? Islington Tennis Centre and Gym has the answer with affordable tennis lessons available for children of all abilities, aged from 3 up to 15 years:

Tots Tennis (3-5 years)
Introduction to tennis for 3 and 5 year olds. It is played on small courts with soft balls. Working on balance, awareness and hitting the ball over the net in some capacity.

Mini Tennis Red Course (4-8 years)
Mini Tennis Red is for players aged between 4 and 7. 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 Tennis Orange Course (8-9 years)
Mini Tennis Orange is a great way for players to continue their progress from Mini Tennis Red and is for players aged 7 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.

Mini Tennis Green Course (9-11 years)
Mini Tennis Green is a great way for players to continue their progress from Mini Tennis Orange. This level is for playes aged between 9 - 11 years. 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.

Teen Tennis (11+ years)
These courses consist of coaching and coached match play, with an emphasis on fun.
