Junior Performance Coaching – Click for info
The junior coaching programme at Ilkley is one of the largest in the country with over 500 children taking part in regular lessons.
The coaching programme is structured so that there is a natural progression from each level to the next and it incorporates the LTA mini tennis scheme.
The Club is also an LTA Accredited Performance Centre and it is quite normal to see some of the best juniors in the county being put through their paces while on an adjacent court there could be some 4/5 year olds being introduced to sponge ball tennis for the first time!
Tennis Tykes is a tennis play and coaching programme for 2-4 year olds which is taught at the Club by the club’s qualified coaches. The emphasis is on fun and we use modified mini tennis equipment (small nets, sponge balls and adapted rackets). The classes develop children’s basic co-ordination, agility and balance while at the same time also promoting social interaction, developing confidence, language and listening skills. Personal achievement is also rewarded and we build on skills achieved each week with stickers and charts for every child. Please see attached registration form for details of all the Tennis Tykes classes and why not sign up for a FREE TASTER LESSON by contacting Caroline Buncall on 07843 342 662 firstname.lastname@example.org.
