Tennis Lessons for Children

Tennis Tots (2-4 years)

Tennis Harrogate works in partnership with Tennis Tots. Incorporating many of the early years learning goals, the Tennis Tots™ curriculum provides a unique experience for children to develop physically, socially and emotionally and helps provide an environment to get children ready for a classroom setting and indeed serves the children well into their school years and beyond. Using a structured approach to each session children learn to listen to instructions whilst having fun learning alongside their parents.

Mini Tennis (4-11 years)


The Mini Tennis programme starts as early as 4 years old progressing through red, orange and green stages of the LTA’s Mini Tennis Programme. Once out of Mini Tennis children can continue to progress through a structured programme from one group to the next.

Group tennis lessons take place during school term time, with breaks for half term and school holidays. During the school holidays children can participate in our Tennis camps and holiday match-play events allowing them to continue their improvement throughout the year.

Tennis For Kids Taster courses

Tennis for Kids offers every child the chance to take part in their first tennis lessons in a safe, relaxed environment. For just £25, each child will receive six coaching sessions, their own racket, set of balls, and a personalised t-shirt, all delivered directly to their home.

Delivered by a specially-trained LTA Accredited Coach, the coaching sessions teach kids the basics of tennis. They’ll learn how to hold a racket, how to hit the ball, and even have a rally with friends. Most importantly, kids will have lots of fun on the course, meeting new friends and getting active on court.

Tennis Harrogate will be running Tennis For Kids course during the Summer term.

Junior Development (11 Plus)

The Junior Development programme progresses from mini tennis offering sessions for children between the ages of 11-18 years of age. The junior development groups are specifically set up for the needs of this age group with an emphasis on fun, friendship and exercise.Our aim is to give players the skills they need to play a basic game of tennis, including serving, basic singles tactics and doubles positions. The group is ideal for beginner to intermediate level, aiming to progress the player to competing in lower level tournaments and inter schools competitions.
