We have an extremely active junior division at The Avenue and a long history of producing great young players. Our head coach Jack Woollcott runs a suite of junior coaching programmes that ensure fun for all ages and progression of tennis skill.
Jack is a Level 4 professional with 10 years coaching experience and is Head Pro at The Avenue. Jack teaches our 130 junior members throughout the week, including Saturday mornings. He has a great team of assistants, many of whom have graduated through our flourishing junior section.
The junior season runs from April 1st to September 30th every year and non-members are able to join these groups in the winter months with a view to gaining full membership by the following April. The minimum age for FULL membership is 8 years old, depending on standard. On Tuesdays and Thursdays, Jack offers after school Mini Tennis classes for 4 year olds and upwards and also a pay and play session on Saturday mornings from 9-10am for the 5-9 age group.
During the summer school holidays, our coaching team offer 5 day mini and junior tennis courses during weekday mornings. In other school holidays, we tend to offer 5 hour all-day multi sport fun days and all of these holiday activities are available to members and non-members alike.
All groups have a maximum size for reasons of safety and value for money and a typical group of 12 players would feature Jack with at least 3 other assistants on 2/3 courts.
If you would be interested in taking part in our junior programme then please call Jack on 07375 108696 to discuss cost and availability.
