Gosforth Lawn Tennis Club offers an extensive Junior Programme catering for players of all ages and abilities. Our Junior programme is headed up by Andrew Reed (Level 4 Senior Club Coach) with the support of Carlos Caldeira (Level 4 Senior Club Coach) who are ably assisted by Level 1 coaching assistants, James Schofield and Cameron Haswell. The coaching programme is well supported, with the help of ten competition organisers, who provide regular competitive opportunities for junior players. All of our coaches are fully licensed with the LTA, have satisfactory CRB and first aid approval.
The programme typically caters for 80-100 junior players for all ages, who are supported by our coaches throughout their development. Competitive opportunities are provided through match play evenings, ratings tournaments, junior tournaments and league teams which cater for all standards. Our current programme consists of 15 sessions which are designed to suit the needs of the player.
Those sessions focus on players ‘all-round’ skills in Agility, Balance and Coordination, technical development of players, as well as an introduction to competitive tennis.
