At Redland Green Club, our juniors are encouraged and inspired & we have various youth squads of all ages and abilities.
We run Red/Orange/Yellow & Green Ball squads every weekday night, as well as Sat/Sun (for more information on which squad is right for your child, take a look at our FAQs below).
Our junior coaching sessions are run by our experienced and vibrant LTA Accredited Level 3 and 4 coaches. Children will be taught the core foundations of tennis such as the correct grips, technique, footwork as well as how to rally and serve.
JUNIOR COACHING FAQ’s
Do your junior squads run if it’s raining?
Yes! We are lucky at Redland Green Club to have lots of indoor and outdoor space, as well as freshly cleaned non-slip courts. As long as it’s safe, we play!
What should my child wear?
Please ensure your child wears trainers or sports shoes & comfortable clothes that they can run around in. Please bring a hat/cap if sunny, a waterproof jacket if raining and a water bottle.
Does my child need to bring their own racquet?
If they have one, otherwise we have lots of spare racquets.
What does the player pathway look like at Redland Green Club?
Our sessions are grouped by age and ball colour. Your child will start in a squad appropriate to their age or experience. However, we understand that each child progresses differently, so assess the development and ability of each individual child. When they are ready and confident, we will move them up to the next stage.
Age 5-7 Red Ball – A great way for kids to start out in tennis, played on smaller courts with shorter racquets and softer balls.
Age 8-9 Orange Ball – Played on slightly larger courts than red ball, with bigger racquets and balls that are not as soft. We continue to work on all the different shots, providing fun competition and gameplay.
Age 9+ Green Ball – The next stage to go through, before playing with a full compression yellow ball, on a full-sized court, and helps players work on and improve all aspects of their game.
For children showing both the application and skill to further develop their tennis skills, we offer our high-performance squads. These are closed sessions.
These sessions offer technical coaching delivered by LTA Accredited Level 3 and 4 coaches. They are high-intensity, focused sessions, offering full-court match play.

Tennis tots at Redland Green Club is a fun and energetic pre-school group, designed to introduce children to the basic skills of Tennis.
Our sessions help children learn to listen, follow instructions, and build confidence within a sports setting. We believe that tennis at this age should be about having fun and learning skills that will help them to progress through to juniors and beyond.
Parents do not need to stay for the session, but you are welcome to watch and encourage your little ones.
You are welcome to come along to one of our taster sessions before you sign up for a course. You’ll get to meet our coaches and see for yourself how fun our sessions are. Contact us if you would like further information or to let us know you’d like to come along.
