Junior Coaching

We run regular weekly coaching sessions for juniors throughout the year, broadly in line with the academic school year. During the summer we run tennis camps that replace the weekly lessons.

Lessons are arranged in blocks of six weeks and focus on the practice of the various shots, technical skills and modes of play through drills, exercises and practice.

Each lesson takes 60 minutes. Lessons take place midweek in late afternoon and early evening

Lessons are organised by age group. The lessons are suitable for children aged 5 and over.

Our coaches use the ITF (International Tennis Federation) Tennis 10s system in their lessons. Juniors will learn to play with red, orange and green balls that have slower speeds and lower bounces to allow them to develop their skills appropriately. Players move to using yellow balls at the appropriate age.

Lessons have a high coach:junior ratio to allow plenty of time for practice and individual attention.

Our lessons are given by experienced tennis coaches. All coaches and coaching assistants are Garda vetted and have completed child safeguarding training.

Lessons are offered to Stratford members firstly who will be invited to book by email once bookings open.

We regularly have extra places available to non-members. If you are interested in lessons for your child, please contact us on juniors@stratfordtennis.ie.

We have a 6-week block of lessons running at the moment which start on April 27th, on Tuesdays and Fridays. There are still some slots available. Non members can book these lessons by followin this link:
