Learners 2017-18 (age 9-12)

Learners coaching is an opportunity for children aged approximately 9 yrs or older who haven’t played tennis before to learn tennis skills.  They are taught all the basic tennis shots: forehand, backhand, serve, volley, smash.  They are also taught how to score and the rules of tennis. Once these basic skills have been mastered children are encouraged to join Taieri Junior tennis teams where they can play matches against other players of similar ability

Children will need their own racquet which can be purchased from Otago Sports Depot, Stirling Sports, or Rebel Sports in Dunedin.  They also need to bring with them a drink bottle & sun block.  Appropriate clothing & sports shoes are essential.

Learners classes are held on Friday afternoons in two sessions & the children either attend from 4-5 pm or 5-6 pm.  Lessons are held at the Taieri Tennis Club courts, 10A Wickliffe Street, Mosgiel.
