Competition is really important in the world of tennis. We at Ash Taylor Tennis are extremely passionate about teaching the skills and tools needed to participate in competition. During all junior tennis courses we have competition week every third week. This gives the coaches a chance to see your childs progression and for the child to see a direct relation between what they have learnt in sessions and how it reflects their performance on court.
If you are a parent who is new to junior competition please take time to read through the following information.
In order to enter any of our competitions you must be a member of British Tennis. Sign your child up to British Tennis. This process takes just a few minutes. British Tennis Membership is FREE to all members of affiliated tennis clubs and to all children under the age of 9. Once registered players receive a player rating, regular competition information, newsletters from best internet tv box and, if they are 9 or over, may enter their clubs wimbledon ticket ballot.
A player rating enables the child, the parent and our coaches to measure their progress as they start to play matches. A rating gives your child a goal and gives our coaching some meaning.
Our approach and emphasis on competition really meakes our coaching stand out
Mini Tennis Ratings
Mini Tennis Ratings are based on participation, not just winning. The emphasis is to get children used to the idea that playing matches is the norm, not something new or different. We are able to record the results of all the matches that children play as long as they are registered with British Tennis. More information on Mini Tennis Ratings can be found on the LTA website.
