Junior coaching

The club organises very popular junior coaching sessions open to children age 4 upwards and run by our LTA licensed coach Damian Lane.

Dates for the 2022 season

After a very rich 2021 season and lots of interest from parents living in Pangbourne and the surrounding areas, we have further expanded our Junior coaching activities for 2022!

Our 2022 spring and summer juniors sessions will be on Friday afternoons from 4:30pm with the first series starting on 29th April and continuing to 15th July (11 sessions over 12 weeks). Each session lasts 45′ with participants grouped by age and ability. The groups will run 4:30pm till 5:15, then 5:15-6pm, 6-6:45pm and 6:45-7:30pm. The younger children typically play at 4:30pm. The session time for each junior will be confirmed when the number and age profile of participants is known. Parents are able to indicate time conflicts in the registration process.

How to book places

Abi, our Junior coordinator, has now emailed all current and past members and parents, asking them to register interest. Parents can also indicate interest using this registration form. Abi will get back to all parents nearer the time to confirm the session time, validate registration and request payment.

UPDATE: the programme is now fully subscribed. You may still register interest and will be added to the waiting list.

Fees & Payment

The cost for this first programme (11 sessions) is shown below. Children who are already members (e.g. part of a family membership) only need to pay the coaching fee.

Payment should be made once our Junior coordinator confirms session registrations with parents. Payment details are as follows:

Reference : Surname-Initial(s)

NEW for 2022 – Taster sessions!

New for 2022, we will hold taster sessions prior to the start of the coaching programme (£5 per session per child, no membership required). These will be held on Thursday March 31st and Friday April 8th. Children new to tennis or new to the area are very welcome to join and test if they want to join the 12-week course, whilst past participants are encouraged to attend and get ready for their new season! Please use the registration form above if you’d like to indicate interest in the taster sessions for your child or children.

NEW for 2022 – Summer Camp!

New for 2022, we are planning to run a summer camp week commencing August 8th. Sessions will be 2 hours long over 5 days, likely to be 10am-12pm (Group 1) and 1-3pm (Group 2). Please use the registration form above if you’d like to indicate interest in the summer camp for your child or children. Costs are yet to be set and will be proportionate to the 12-week coaching programme.

Invitation to attend, watch and support or play tennis!

The Club recommends that parents should attend their child or children’s sessions and provide active encouragement. The Club also invites parents to help with the wider group during their child or children’s session, simply by being present on court and providing support to the Coach during the session (no tennis skill required). As we confirm your child or children’s session(s) we will ask you if you are willing to provide this wider support. Finally, parents who want to play tennis during their children’s session are invited to use the adjacent courts where club members will be on hand to knock around and provide some guidance. All abilities welcome!
