Age groups for the minis and juniors works with the school year- if you are at the above age for your group it will depend on the month of birth if they will be able to play in the tournaments for that age group otherwise they will move up to the next group.
Recommended starting age 7. When they reach 12/13 they will move up into the Junior Team. Depending on ability they may move into the Juniors team at an earlier age. This is an hour session at the Tennis Centre Bidston (the back of Tesco Bidston Moss). At the moment, this session is joint with the Junior hour session, due to lack of members in the latter team, therefore at the moment you can decide to stay for the two hours or attend the one. Saturday 6pm- 8pm. This will be subject to change. SUBS 2.00 Coach Helen Robinson and Margie Kelly
Juniors/ Under 16's
13-16. This is an hour session in the Tennis Centre as above. These sessions for the time being are held joinly with the minis due to lack of members. Saturday 6pm-8pm. SUBS 2.00 Coach Helen Robinson and Margie Kelly
