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’ve had a strong start to our 2022 Junior coaching activities. The spring and summer juniors sessions held on Friday afternoons from 29th April to 15th July were very successful. A big thank you to Abi our junior coordinator, Robbie and other committee members for their regular support as well as the many parents who attend, encourage their children and even help on court!

We are now taking registrations for the Summer Camp taking place Monday 8th to Friday 12th August. Sessions will be 2 hours long over 5 days, either 10am-12pm or 1-3pm. If there is demand for very young children (either 4 years old or 5 years old and new to tennis), a separate group will be scheduled 9-10am over the 5 days. We recommend 5 sessions either morning or afternoon but recognize that this may not be possible due to other commitments. This can be specified in the registration process.

We are also taking registrations for the September Coaching series held on Fridays from 9th to 30th September (4 weeks). Sessions will be 4:30pm till 5:15, then 5:15-6pm and 6-6:45pm. Depending on demand we may hold 2 sessions at 6:45pm (the first 2 weeks only due to daylight limitations). Children are typically assigned to a specific time based on their age and ability with the younger groups playing first. 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 parents, inviting them to register using this form. After registration, parents will be contacted by Abi who will confirm the session time and request payment.

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!
