Are your kids ready to level up? LTA Youth Start is for kids aged 4-11 years who are new to tennis. We'll help teach them new life skills, developing them as both players and people.

This is a modern approach to tennis training. Forget standing around waiting for your turn to hit a forehand. Think dynamic sessions catered for all abilities.

We want to encourage children to play tennis throughout their lives – and be active too. So, if your child is aged 4-11, why not give it a try?

£29.99 (+£5 P&P) gets you:

  • Six top-class tennis sessions with specially trained coaches

  • A tennis racket and set of balls

  • A branded t-shirt

*If your child has played tennis before then they should try our LTA Youth Programme.
