The Club has a large junior section and we actively promote junior tennis through our coaching programme, junior club nights, junior competitions and box leagues. Juniors are also encouraged to obtain LTA ratings and teams are entered into the Herts League in both the summer and winter. Juniors always have priority on court 3.


Junior Coaching

Head Coach Chris Stringer and his team of coaches run a comprehensive range of term-time and school holiday coaching sessions for all ages and abilities. Junior tennis coaching at the Club is divided into 3 key stages: Tots Tennis, Mini Tennis and Development Tennis.  Non-members are welcome to sign up for coaching courses subject to a non-member fee. For more information on junior coaching, session times and application forms please see our Junior Coaching Courses page or contact our Head Coach Chris Stringer on 07766 707686 or email


Elite Juniors at BLT&SRC 

The Club facilitates a clear path for youngsters who are serious about progressing their tennis. One of our senior coaches, Olly Culwick runs the Berkhamsted Prestige Tennis Academy (BPTA) performance Academy for Mini Tennis players aged 4-10 years. For children over 10, the next step is the Berkhamsted Elite Tennis Academy (BETA), run by Tyrell Diaz-Stevens, an ex ATP World Ranked player. Find out more about our Academies for elite players


Junior Club Night

Friday evening is our junior club night. These are organised sessions run by our Head Coach Chris Stringer and his team of coaches, aimed at mixing players of all abilities and ages. Activities include coaching, fitness and coordination drills, mini competitions and free social play. The sessions run between 6.30pm and 8.30pm and from April to October/November and resume on Friday 22nd April.


Non-members can attend Junior club nights but the cost is £5 per session. If your child is going to attend these sessions regularly or has coaching at the Club then it will be more cost effective for them to become Club members.
