The club has an active junior section, with regular group coaching and individual lessons for juniors of any level and age throughout the year. Fun tennis camps are also held during half-terms and holidays. The club takes part in the School-Club Links project with local schools and organises junior tournaments and competitions, such as Road to Wimbledon, Team Tennis Challenge and the Quorn Family Tennis Cup. This year the club is also participating in the LTA initiative Tennis for Kids, which is a fun introduction for children between 4 and 11 who have little or no experience of playing tennis. The course, run by coach Frances Candy, runs from October 28th – November 2nd, more details on the website Noticeboard. Junior matches are arranged against other clubs in the area and tennis fitness training sessions for teenagers are held on a regular basis.
The club carries out checks to ensure that those assisting children are of appropriate standing and policies are in place to protect participants.
Regular junior coaching takes place during term-time throughout the year, as below.
During half-terms and holidays, the club also runs tennis camps for juniors of all ages. Dates for 2019 are below.

The Rye Junior Tournament sees young players from all over the UK coming together to compete on the club’s fantastic grass courts. It is held over three days in early August every year and comprises Boys’ Singles, Girls’ Singles, Boys’ Doubles, Girls’ Doubles and Mixed Doubles. For a report on the 2019 event, see Junior Tennis Tournament 2019 under Latest News.
The 2020 tournament runs from 5-7 August. Any enquiries, contact Catty Bingham on email@example.com
An enormous amount of time and effort goes into the preparation of the grass courts and, while every effort is made to hold the tournament over three full days, the club regrets that tournament fees are not refundable in the event of bad weather.
