Kids from all over Huddersfield (and Kirklees) come to take part in our holiday tennis activities. They are open to children who are aged five to twelve years. They run for full or half days during Summer and some half-term holidays. More details are available from our coach Andy Smith.

    Coaching can be available for members and non-members from our LTA trained club coach on an individual or group basis for all ages. Individual, group or private tennis lessons can be negotiated with our club coach, details below.

    Junior coaching takes place on Sunday mornings.
