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.
***FIRST SESSION FREE***
Sessions cover the ages of 2-11 as seen below:
Tots Tennis 2-5 year-olds:
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.
Mini Green 9-10 year-olds: Put techniques and skills into practice on a full size court with a faster ball. Played on a full court with a ball marginally softer than a full yellow ball.
In September we will be introducing the LTA mini tennis awards to our programme. The awards will allow for parents to see how their child is progressing as well as enabling the child to move through their age groups rating band.

Sessions are led by intern Tom Haslam and assisted by our group of fantastic students coaches all of whom have received fantastic feedback out in our schools programme. Holywell school:
“The children absolutely love the sessions. The students are highly skilled and very well-organised. They bring all equipment needed and set up themselves. They are very flexible and extremely eager to be providing this opportunity in more schools”
It’s not just the teachers who enjoy the tennis but also the pupils, Leana from Shaftesbury school said:
‘Tennis is a very good and healthy sport. Thank you so much for teaching us!”
