THE JUNIOR SECTION AT THE CLUB

Sevenoaks LTC has a large and thriving junior membership - a result of the Club's strong policy of inclusion and encouragement. Juniors have equal rights booking courts online and are included in senior teams whenever they reach the necessary standard ('if you are good enough you are old enough!') The Club has recently run a popular series of doubles clinics for its teenagers.

The junior coaching and competition programme is part of the West Heath Sevenoaks programme which uses 3 venues around Sevenoaks - The New School at West Heath, the Sennocke Centre at Sevenoaks School, and the Club. The youngest children (5-8) are based mainly at West Heath where there is an indoor hall ideal for mini tennis, and the cold winters(!), and the older children divide their sessions between the indoor courts at Sevenoaks School and the clay/acrylic courts at the Club.

Playing the game and competing is an integral part of the coaching programme - and Sevenoaks has the highest ratio of competing juniors in the South East - there is a busy schedule of competitions at all levels, mainly in the Sennocke during the winter and at the Club April-November. In the current summer season of 2013 there are 18 Junior teams, including 2 in the Premier League. On Friday evenings in the Summer Term, the Club is the main venue for the Junior Summer League, in which nearly 100 juniors compete and enjoy a social evening.

Sevenoaks LTC has a strong link with Lady Boswell's school and funds tennis for the children in curriculum time and provides courts for after school tennis, including a 'late starter' group and Team practice sessions.

The coaching and competitions programme is managed by Hélène Jackson (07710 677675).
