Loughborough Sport Tennis runs a popular mini tennis programme offering a great introduction to the sport for 2-11 year olds. Sessions take place in our indoor facility on the University campus and are led by our friendly and enthusiastic coaches. Sessions are led by Assistant Tennis Coordinator, Connor Evans and assisted by our group of fantastic student coaches all of whom have received fantastic feedback out in our schools programme
***FIRST SESSION FREE***
Everyone who want to join the Mini Tennis programme need to booked on for a free trial session.
Sessions cover the ages of 3-11 as seen below:
Tots Tennis 3-5 year-olds:(2 year old require assessment before joining, to ensure they maximise their experience) Learn fundamental co-ordination and balance skills whilst having fun in a tennis environment.
Mini Red 5-8 year-olds: Learn to serve rally and score with a slow ball as well as learning the movement and co-ordination skills needed for tennis.
Mini Orange 8-9 year-olds: Develop a rounded game, learning a range of techniques and tactics. Played on a court just smaller than a full court with a softer ball.
