tennisMAD Little Monkeys (2–4 yrs)

This is for children wishing to improve their ABC’S; Agility, Balance, Co-ordination and Speed. These are the core skills required to participate in sports in general. This session is a great introduction to ball sports and a way to get youngsters introduced to tennis. They will learn life skills like sharing and working as part of a team, whilst interacting with other children of a similar age. Parents are also encouraged to join in with all activities!

tennisMAD Fun Clubs 5yrs – 10yrs

We offer 3 different fun clubs; Red, Orange and Green. These are for players who are fairly new to the game and are normally training once a week.

In the tennisMAD Fun Club’s children progress at their own pace through our unique training levels. These levels help to develop key skills, gain success and ultimately build confidence in their ability to play the game. All this is done whilst providing a gradual understanding of the basic rules and scoring systems for tennis.
