Junior Coaching

The club runs co-ordinated structured tennis coaching and playing programmes, in line with the LTA National Coaching and Competition frameworks catering for juniors of all ages and standards from 4 through to 18 years of age. Please note separate coaching fees will be charged for these programmes. There are group coaching sessions run weekly for those progressing from mini-tennis to playing full tennis at the age of 10. The membership rates for junior players for the 2018-19 season are £25 for ages 4-11 and £50 for 12-17, meaning we are still the cheapest place for all the budding mini-Murrays and mini-Johannas of SE London to start out playing tennis! Mini Tennis is the first stage of the tennis pathway in which children (aged 4-12) gradually progress through the Red, Orange and Green stages according to ability.

In the process, the court size, racket length, ball speed and the length of games all increase until the player is ready to move onto the full game. At the Red stage, children are introduced to the basics of the game. They start developing the core skills of movement and coordination, take part in lots of fun activities and play short matches and team competitions. At Orange the emphasis is on further development. Orange Competition includes slightly longer matches, most often played as part of a team with on learn new shots and techniques to help them rally on a bigger court. At Green, the final stage in preparing for full tennis, children will be bigger and able to cover the whole court. They will further improve their technique and tactics, as well as fundamental athletic skills. Matches are longer, again still mostly in a team environment..

Mini Tennis programme at Camber LTC

The guiding principles of the Mini Tennis programme at Camber are the needs of young children. This includes coaching, competitions, holiday activities and a social environment.

Red court

Court is much smaller (12m x 6m) and its also necessary to use a smaller net.

Orange court

Modified to 18m in length, the baseline is half way between the service line and full court baseline.

Green court

Mini-tennis Green is played on a full size court. Balls are a little softer than normal tennis balls. Mini-tennis Green is the last stage before moving on to full compression yellow balls on a full sized court and helps players develop and improve all aspects of their game.
