Juniors - get started in tennis




















Spring is a great time to get started with tennis in Cloughey.  The weather is warming up and the evenings are getting brighter.


Tennis is a great sport for kids to learn from an early age.  It is a non-contact sport, which improves their balance, coordination, and agility - all skills that can be transferred to other sports.  Above all, tennis is fun and most kids enjoy playing rallies from an early stage and the sense of achievement that this brings.  For group coaching we take children from age 5.  With some one-to-one coaching, they can start from age 4.


Tennis can be enjoyed at any level - from simple recreation to high-level competition, and by getting them started early, you will give your own child the opportunity to realise their own potential, and to decide at what level they want to play.


At Cloughey & District, we use the most recent and progressive coaching methods recommended by Tennis Ireland & the International Tennis Federation (ITF), using slow balls, mini-nets and a games-based and fun approach which is enjoyed by all the kids who play with us.
