Wells coaching offers a full range of opportunities for children and young people to not just develop their tennis game but improved social skills, confidence and athletic ability. Our aim is that all young people at Wells enjoy tennis enough to continue throughout life.

What’s NEW

We are introducing the Tennis Players Journey (more to come on this in time) but in summary:

Stage 1:  Will be for tennis players aged 4-7 yrs.

Stage 2:  Will be for tennis players aged 8-10 yrs.

Stage 3:  Will be for players 11-17 yrs and will be divided into two groups (tiers).  Tier 1 will be for players who are beginners / improvers while Tier 2 will be for players who are intermediate to advanced players.

The reasons for introducing the journey gives players an idea of ‘what’s next?’ instead of simply training once a week.

In addition there will be a Team Tennis afternoon every Saturday (2-4pm) to come and play tennis.  For example week 1 will be for players at Stage 1 & 2 and will alternate with Stage 3 players in week 2.  Ts & Cs, to be part of Team Tennis you will need to be a member of the club and attend coaching at least once a week.  If I am away for county training the session maybe cancelled but a substitute leader will be called on first.
