Streetly Tennis Club has a comprehensive junior coaching programme that caters for all ages and a wide range of abilities.  Our aim is to maximise every players’ potential so, whatever your aspirations, there is a course suitable for you.

The Ministarz program caters for children aged 3/4 to 10 years old. The court size and speed of ball used in sessions is tailored to the age of the child and mini tennis stage. There are 3 stages in mini tennis: Red, orange and green.

for children aged 8 and under and is played on courts that are 12m by 6m with balls that are 25% of the speed of a normal tennis ball. The slower ball and smaller court gives children more time and a better chance to learn techniques and apply tactics that they may find impossible on a full court with normal tennis balls. Matches at this stage comprise tie-breaks to 10 points.

For children aged 8/9yrs old and is played on courts that are 18m by 6m with balls that are 50% of the speed of a normal tennis ball. Matches at this stage comprise best of 3 tie-breaks to 7points.

The LTA operate competition regulations so children must compete at the appropriate stage for their age. If children reach a certain rating they can compete at the the next stage up before they reach the usual age range for that stage.  At Streetly most children will be training within the appropriate stage as defined by the LTA as this will be best for their development. In individual cases however a child may train up a stage or two because they have a demonstrated the ability and willingness to do so.
