Junior & Mini Tennis


Junior & Mini Tennis Coaching  

Carnegie Mini and Junior Tennis is an energetic section of our University and is based at the Sports Centre on our Headingley Campus, where children can access a range of tennis and sports hall facilities, within the safety of the University grounds.

During the winter months (up until Easter) the coaching takes place in our indoor centre. After the Easter holidays we move to the outdoor courts.

The coach / child ratio will ensure your child receives quality instruction throughout the courses. All tennis coaches are LTA qualified, and have a current DBS (Disclosure and Barring Service) check.

Courses are programmed to follow school/ University terms.

Mini Tennis Programme

The Mini Tennis program provides high quality coaching for players aged between 3 and 10 years, providing opportunities for players of a young age to be introduced to tennis, develop their game in an enjoyable environment and achieve their full potential.

Mini Tennis uses smaller courts, shorter rackets and lower bouncing balls and the score is modified to ensure children learn in a way that suits their physical size, emotional maturity and tactical skill.

Tots Tennis is for children aged 3 to 5 years old and enables them to learn the basics and how to enjoy the game through a series of fun activities, based on the fundamental areas of balance, co-ordination, agility, movement and racket and ball skills.
