Junior Development and Performance Squads Restart

As the summer holidays draw to a close it’s time for the return of the Totally Tennis Junior Squads which form part of the the club’s development and performance programme run by our team of LTA licensed coaches. Totally Tennis squads are run on weekdays and designed for children aged from four years upwards that start with mini tennis nets and sponge balls and work up to full sized courts and yellow balls, every child is given an appropriate squad to join, usually guided by age.
