Tennis lessons for children in London by Bodyswot Tennis (10)-1000

We have a low student to pupil ratio (4:1) in our group courses so we can devote time to each child and give individual attention and encouragement. Each session is carefully planned following our unique training system, with an emphasis on fun while learning core skills. Groups are run along developmental stages as well as being categorised by age.

Tots tennis (ages 3 to 4)

The emphasis for pre-schoolers is on:

Developing basic movement skills
Encouraging hand-eye co-ordination
Simple racket and ball skills
Fun games

Mini tennis (ages 5 to 10)

Group sessions for primary school-aged children with one coach to every four children; this enables us to focus on giving individual attention. We have devised a game-based programme using tactical and technical drills to boost learning. We encourage players to enter competitions as soon as they are ready.

Agility and co-ordination games
Racket and ball skills
Focus on serving
Rally skills
