Children’s tennis courses

Help your little ones get active with our range of tennis trainings and lessons for children. We also have a range of short courses and sessions to keep them moving during school holidays. Below are our regular children’s tennis sessions:

Teddy Tennis

Best for: Ages 2-5

Combining music, games, pictures, interactive play and a cast of friendly teddy characters, Teddy Tennis gets your little ones active on the court. During these kids tennis sessions, your child will get to know the characters and learn skills in a fun and playful environment. Less focused on the gameplay, Teddy Tennis is more of a casual introduction to the sport, building your child’s confidence and social skills.

Junior tennis lessons

Best for: ages 4-18

From introducing them to a new sport to developing their technique, our junior tennis lessons will help your child to become confident on the court. Following the LTA Youth Programme, our highly trained coaches will guide your child as they develop their agility, coordination and social skills, in a fun environment.

These tennis sessions are suitable for a range of ages and abilities so every child or teen can learn how to play this great game. Some of our centres have sessions for those aged 3 years and above so even little ones can get involved.

Best for: ages 4-18

If you want to introduce your children to tennis in a fun and energetic environment, LTA Youth Go! is the perfect choice. With games, drills and racket practice, LTA Youth Go! builds on the basics without the need for a court.

Some of centres also run LTA Youth Start sessions which are more court-based and focus on helping kids aged 4-11 start to play tennis.
