Development Squad (Interclub)

Development Squads are suited for Junior Interclub players who are wanting to improve their tennis both technically and tactically. We have a strong focus on developing consistency with groundstrokes, volleying and serving, whilst implementing point play and tactical patterns with competitive drills.

We divide players into two classes based on age group to ensure trainings are engaging and enjoyable. These squads also incorporate fitness, movement and balance which helps enhance performance on-court (and in any sport).

SUMMER 2021-22 DATES

Term 4: Oct 18 - Dec 20 2021
Term 1: Feb 07 - Apr 08 2022

Our Development Squad runs for 16 weeks, which leaves us 2-3 weeks 'back up' in case of wet weather. We take a 'break' over the Xmas/Jan holidays and return in early Feb 2022 for the remainder weeks. If we do NOT get through our required sessions, 'credit' is carried over to the following term or can be used in one of our holiday programmes.
