Who can enrol? The classes are open to anyone under 16 years of age. Mini tennis coaching is open to anyone attending primary school. All classes are usually heavily subscribed and you may have to wait for a free place. Coylton Tennis Club members get priority.
Attendance? We have a large waiting list. You must contact us any time your child misses a class for 2 weeks in a row otherwise your child may be removed from the register and his/her place offered to another. Our lessons are progressive and children learn quickly; anyone missing lessons will fall behind.
How much does it cost? Junior coaching, which is outdoors on our own courts, is free to club members and £2.00 per lesson for anyone else. Indoor mini tennis coaching, for which we have to hire the Activity Centre, is £2.00 for everyone, club member or not.
Which class? The coaches can advise which class best suits your child's current ability. At the start of the outdoor season the junior classes will use red, orange or green mini tennis balls or yellow full tennis balls depending on the age and standard of the players. Later on a class may switch to a more advanced ball if the progress of the players allows this. The indoor winter classes will all use mini red foam balls.
What else do we need? Trainers, and activity clothing suitable for the prevailing weather (no jeans allowed). Please ensure your child brings something to drink. Children can borrow a racket from the club, but should bring their own if possible. If you want to buy a racket for your child, please speak to one of the coaches first, as playing with a racket that is too large or small will hinder your child's progress. The club will provide balls.
Bad weather? We can handle light rain or wind. Otherwise, phone the coach before travelling.
Child protection. Coylton Tennis Club is registered with Disclosure Scotland and all junior coaches/ helpers have been CRBS checked. The Child Protection Officer is Mr A Coulter.
