Horsham Lawn Tennis Club

Junior Tennis Coaching



Junior Coaching at HLTC, Cricketfield Road

Within Horsham Lawn Tennis Club, there is a strong and ever expanding Junior Section that has organised coaching and squad sessions with our Hawk-i coaching team.

We would like to encourage members with young children to start them in our Mini Tennis Red programme that takes on Saturdays and Mondays after school and is held at Broadbridge Heath Leisure Centre “The Bridge”. Once they reach a predetermined playing level the juniors join existing players at Horsham Lawn Tennis Club. (please note, sessions are currently being run at Horsham Lawn Tennis Club until September)

For further details of Mini Tennis Red class times and class fees please contact Tessa Walder at tessawalder@aol.com or 01403256806. Mini Tennis levels orange and green are at the club run by Glyn.
