THE PROGRAMME > MNI TENNIS ACADEMY

MINI TENNIS
All our Mini Tennis coaching sessions are based around an annual syllabus which is designed to meet the needs of the players at each different age and stage of Mini Tennis. This syllabus takes players from their first experience of Mini Tennis at Red or their transition to a new stage and engages the players in topics relevant to their age and stage. This includes locomotion and movement patterns, body control, tactics and stroke development.
Our Mini Tennis Programme offers players up to 6 hours of squad coaching per week and 2 hours of strength and conditioning training. Players can also supplement their programme with individual lessons from one of the coaching team, and also the many training camps and tournament trips that are arranged for our players within the Mini Tennis Programme. Once our Mini Tennis Players reach the age of 10 they will have the opportunity to progress into our High Performance Centre Programme or Club Programme depending on their level of ability and commitment.
MINI TENNIS ACADEMY
Our mini Tennis Academy caters for players who are Regional or National Standard or have the potential to reach that level. The Academy gives additional training opportunities to players who participate in our Mini Tennis invitational sessions. Selection into the Academy is on an invitational basis from our Mini Tennis Coordinator in conjunction with the Dorset LTA County Talent Performance Coordinator. Players who are invited have to meet all the criteria for this squad.
Players in the academy currently receive:
Free 90 minute session on Friday evening

Mental skills player log book

Parents meeting in September and February
MINI TENNIS COMPETITIONS
At the West Hants we offer an extensive competitive programme for our Mini Tennis players. Timed tennis is a regular part of our Mini Tennis squads both in the Club programme and the invitational squads. As a first introduction to competition we have the West Hants Grand Slam Tour. These Tournaments are held every 6 weeks at Red, Orange and Green level. The Grand Slam Tour is a more informal tournament which is based on a team format for the red and orange players.
These events are only for players in the West Hants Mini Tennis Programme. We then offer the West Hants Junior Tour which is a series of grade 5 events at Red, Orange and Green level.
These tournaments are monthly and are open events which attract a strong entry from the local area and are all individually based competitions. As part of the Bournemouth Open the club also runs Red, Orange and Green tournaments which are LTA grade 2 events.
