The Shrewsbury Club offers leading tennis facilities and the largest team of coaches in Shropshire, who are all Lawn Tennis Association (LTA) qualified and licensed as well as being DBS checked and holding safeguarding qualifications.
The club hosts junior tennis classes every Tuesday and Saturday. Little ones can start young, from around the age of three, with Tots Tennis, and progress through the levels right up to the adults group when they reach around age 15.
Young players can start at beginner level in our Junior Development Programme and advance over time to our Junior Performance Programme. The Shrewsbury Club's older juniors go on to represent the club's adult teams or stay and help out with the junior programmes as tennis leaders through Tennis Shropshire's Tennis Futures Programme.
The Junior programme is managed by Director of Tennis Simon Haddleton from inspire2coach, in partnership with The Shrewsbury Club. The club also has strong links with many local clubs from around Shropshire, including Newport's Boughey Gardens, Wem Tennis Club, Ludlow Castle, Tilstock, Lilleshall and Calverhall.
This provides a clear pathway for promising juniors within Shropshire to access the excellent performance coaching here at The Shrewsbury Club.
We are also delighted to host county training sessions here at the club for all county junior teams, with the sessions managed by inspire2coach and Nigel Hunter, the director of county coaching.
