County coaching


Little boy getting ready to take a shot.jpg

Part funded through the Bedfordshire LTA and the LTA, we run regular county training for junior players across the County.

We host county training for junior players in the following age groups:

  • 8 & Under
  • 9 & Under
  • 10 & Under
  • 12 & Under
  • 14 & Under
  • 18 & Under

The programme will see the top players in the county come together to train with each other optimising their development. For those who continue to progress, they will achieve county representation in identified team events against other counties.

This opportunity is designed to support home club coaching. Players will train and meet with each other on a regular basis to complement their club/coach programme. The sessions will be high intensity, fun, group based with an overall aim to enable a team ethos and assess the best pairings for future doubles matches in county events. The programme is invitational.

The county coaches and team manager work in unison with coaches around the county to build strong links to develop players into county players.
