Term 1 - 2018

Our junior coaching programme can cater for any age or ability, from a complete beginner through to national competitor. We ensure that every child can achieve their full potential. 

 

Our programme allows our players to fit into the correct group based on ability, whilst it also maintains the flexibility to move players through the various levels as and when they begin to progress.  We are also Tennis New Zealand Hot Shots coaches, so for the younger players we make sure that they are playing with the correct sized racquets, balls and nets.
