Welcome to the Iver Heath Lawn Tennis Club Mini & Junior Page. Our club runs a very successful Mini & Junior Section and this is shown on court by our Junior Boys, Girls & Mini Players. Over the years some of our juniors have gone on to represent their county as well as playing in national tournaments.
All abilities are catered for from beginners to advanced juniors. Our Juniors play an important part in our club ethos and we devote a lot of time in making sure they enjoy tennis and their time on court.
JUNIOR COACHING: Coaching plays a big part in a young tennis players development whatever their age, standard or ability. Mini & Junior Coaching is availabe for all children aged 4 & above and is open to members and non-members. Our sessions take place on a Monday, Friday & Saturday.

MATCH PLAY EVENTS: Throughout the year, our Club Coach runs internal Match Play events for mini & junior players. These events give experience to the younger players in playing matches and more importantly playing points, the scoring system and match etiquette. For the older players it hones their match play experience. All matches played go towards the players LTA rating. Our current match play event can be found here - Mini & Junior Match Play

MINI & JUNIOR TENNIS: Different coloured balls are used for Mini Tennis depending on age group (and ability). Red Ball = 5-8 years, Orange Ball = 8- 9 years, Green Ball = 10 years and Yellow Ball = Juniors.
