Tennis For Kids Returns To CTC

CTC are excited to agin be involved in the LTA’s Tennis For Kids programme for 2018! Having taken part in 2017 for the first time (where we ran 3 full courses and had over half of these children continue tennis with us) we are looking forward to an even bigger and better year this time around!

After two very successful years, this grass roots initiative has evolved and now allows any child aged 4 to 11 years old who is new to tennis access 6 weeks of coaching for just £25. This fee also includes a custom Babolat racket, 3 tennis balls and a personalised t-shirt, which is exceptional value for money. Plus all those who join one of our courses will get access to a special membership offer for them and their immediate family to continue their tennis with us beyond the 6 week programme.

The national campaign launches this coming Thursday (5th April) but click here and enter your details to be the first to know when Tennis for Kids sign up opens, giving you the chance to secure a place for your child on one of our exciting courses at Caerphilly Tennis Club!


Head Coach Jon again was successfully accepted to be part of the project and attended a special training day with over 60 other coaches as delivered by the TFK team and special guest Annabel Croft!

This new session will cost CTC members just £1 each and non-members £2 (and this includes the 50p fee for playing time at FFF for that evening!).

Getting on-court with your family is not just a a fantastic way for new players to get started with tennis at the Club, but also allows current to get an extra bit of playing time if they wish to.
