Junior Tennis Coaching
At the DCTP we offer a range of coaching opportunities for players of all ages and abilities.
We have recently changed our policy on booking onto courses. If you have attended a course previously please check your email for a payment request from clubspark. You are automatically rebooked onto the course.
As we hold coaching at a number of coaches and venues we have split our sessions into the following categories.
Due to numbers of players at Durham Moor Tennis Club we have listed our groups online, please note there is a password required to view this information that is only sent to the guardian on file.
Our Junior programme runs based on age groups alongside the LTA’s age group guidance, from 12 & Under though to 18 & Under. We have mixed abilities within all of our groups to give every child the oppertunity to play. We also run a handful of advanced classes for players who wish to take their tennis further and compete in sanctioned tournaments. Our sessions are plit into 4 age groups and are below;
Yellow & Blue Squad- Designed for beginner to intermediate level players ages 10-14. , Booking onto this course requires immediate payment and will secure a place. This session is taught using a rally-based curriculum and focuses on developing sending and receiving skills, sound footwork, racquet mechanics and incorporating comparable athletic skills developed in other sports. Players learn how to properly position themselves to execute groundstrokes and volleys, hit with purpose, serve and ultimately sustain a rally of varying speed and duration.
Purple & Gold Squad-
Coaching for all players in our U16 and U18 age groups, providing an opportunity for intermediate level teenage players to progress their skills in a fun and competitive environment. Stroke development, footwork, doubles and singles strategies will all be covered during the course of the session.
