“Sport is a vital part of childrens education because it teaches them how to win and lose. You can’t under-estimate the life lessons sport can offer – sometimes you lose in sport just as in life. But it’s how you deal with the success and failure that builds character” – Victoria Pendleton CBE

MINI TENNIS – AGES 4-10
Juniors aged 4 years old are encouraged to join in our Mini Tennis courses – TOTS (3-5 years old), RED (5-8 years old), ORANGE (8-9 years old) and GREEN (9-10 years old) levels, which provide a perfect and fun introduction to the sport.
Using smaller courts, nets, racquets and balls, the coaching team follow an LTA programme so it gives your child the time to progress at his or her own speed.
JUNIOR TENNIS – AGES 11+
Children aged 11 years plus transition to full courts and YELLOW balls.
We offer developments squads right through to top performance juniors at age 16, who are encouraged to hone their skills in inter-club AEGON Junior League matches, in inter-club Kent League doubles matches and also the singles ladder.
HOLIDAY COURSES & JUNIOR TOURNAMENTS – ALL AGES
Beckenham Lawn Tennis Club also offers school holiday courses, plus a chance to compete in the summer junior championship and two LTA Grade 4 tournaments.
The popular LTA Grade 4-level AMOSCA Beckenham Junior Open (late July) and AVITA Beckenham Junior Open (late October) each attract more than 150 entries from juniors across the south-east of England (and internationally) and help towards improving your child’s LTA Ranking. Entries normally open three months before the tournament starts.
Beckenham encourages juniors to achieve their best within tennis, including encouraging them into tennis coaching.
Our coaching team is also available to cater for individual lessons. Prices range from £20-£30 pounds per hour.
Please get in touch with our Racquet Sports head Steve Pratt if you have any concerns or feedback about the coaching programme.
