Mini-tennis, Junior, and Intermediate scene.
|There are three levels of junior tennis at the club. The under 10’s and beginners usually start with mini-tennis which itself has three levels, green, orange and red. As their ball skills and co-ordination develop, the young children move up through the levels. When they are capable of holding a rally on a normal size court, they progress to junior status.
At junior level, normally in the age range 11 - 15, the children play on Saturday mornings between 10.00am and 1.00pm and on Monday evenings between 6.30pm and 9.00pm.
When the junior committee consider that a junior has achieved the playing ability to play with adults as well as having sufficient maturity to mix sociably, they nominate the junior to the main committee to move onto intermediate status. As intermediates, they can join in with adult social tennis on Wednesday and Friday evenings, and Sunday mornings. They can also play in winter league sessions and adult league matches.
