Datchworth Tennis Club

Regular Coaching

The Coaching Team at Datchworth Tennis is led by Jenny Larke.

At Datchworth Tennis we follow the principles of the LTA player’s development programme providing activities that are relevant, exciting and allows players to hit ground strokes, rally and score. The Mini Tennis Programme has 3 stages:

Red balls 5-8yrs        Orange balls  8-9yrs            Green balls 9+yrs
 
The programme ensures appropriate equipment and court size this allows players to learn the game in a way that suits their physical size, emotional maturity and technical, tactical ability and Players progress to the next stage, when they have the physical ability and playing skills.

Each lesson then has a planned theme:

Agility. Balance. Co-ordination, speed (ABCs) for warm ups
Main theme - for techniques + tactics + playing the game

Competition -a competitive version of the activity, to use in the last part of the lesson


Visit the LTA Mini Tennis website for more information about mini tennis and for some fun games as well!
