JUNIOR COACHING INFORMATION

Saturday mornings at the Dairy Flat Tennis club are a hive of activity with children aged between 5-12 years learning to play tennis.

We have a number of groups running from 9am to midday. Our coaching programme aims to be fun and help the children develop their tennis skills. As their confidence and skill grows they will be moved up to more challenging groups, with the aim to move on to Junior Interclub tennis.

COACHING SQUADS

Junior Squad - Age 5-7 years - Saturdays 9am - 8.50am

An introductory course for beginners, starting with racket grip and stance to get your child familiar with the basics. We use low pressure balls, easier to hit and learn to take shots.
Damir our club coach encourages the players with fun, games and rewards as they improve their tennis.

Intermediate Squad - Age 7-9 years - Saturdays 10.00am - 10.55am

Damir will further develop the children's forehand, backhand and serving skills, progressing towards game play. Medium pressure balls are used to help enhance initial skills and develop the ability to have longer rallies.

Senior Squad - Age 9-12 years Saturdays 11am - Midday

Extended skills of serving, volleying, shot selection and game knowledge. Learning to umpire, scoring a set of tennis and tennis etiquette, in preparation for Junior Interclub.​​​​​​​

While Damir takes each session, parental support is welcome and we encourage parents to participate and assist if possible.
