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. 

 

Junior Coaching

All tennis coaching is managed and delivered through our coaching partner, Berkhamsted Tennis Fit (BTF), run by Tyrell Diaz Stevens who has worked closely with the Club for over 10 years.

 

Tyrell and his team of experienced coaches run a full coaching programme at the Club for juniors of all ages and abilities, every day of the week. Junior holiday camps run during the school holidays.

 

Coaching is available on a 1-1 basis or in group sessions.

Junior Competition

In conjunction with Berkhamsted Tennis Fit, we run a complete programme of junior tournaments. Competition is important in developing junior tennis, allowing youngsters to put the skills learnt in coaching sessions to the test. For more information click here.

 

Junior Box League

We are delighted to announce that as of November 2021, we have launched our new junior box league!

The junior league will run alongside the adult box league with the same format and scoring - see Operation of the Junior Box League. These box leagues give our junior members an ideal opportunity to start competing and playing matches on a regular basis against players of similar age and ability.
