Welcome to the 31st year of Summer School at Braintree Lawn Tennis Club. Last year 260 children passed through the course confirming its popularity and success once again. Each week we hope to see all participants improve their ball skills and stroke techniques through interesting training and fun games.


There will be qualified LTA & RPT coaches, and assistants. Players will be grouped depending on age and experience and team skills will be developed through an incentive point scheme which will count towards prizes at the end of the week. All coaching will be in line with the standard of players and all groups have their own coaching structure.


The course content will be wide ranging to give every child the opportunity to excel. Instruction, demonstration and games will be supplemented by the use of instructional videos, rebound nets, ball machine, speed gun, mini tennis equipment and targets. LTA & RPT initiatives will be implemented during the course to inspire children taking part. The course will conclude with a fantasy fun games session and tournament before the end of week presentation.

Food & Drink

Players should bring a packed lunch Monday to Thursday. A BBQ lunch on Friday will be provided within the cost of the course. A tuck shop will be open at periods throughout the day for the purchase of small snacks, and drinks. Please let us know if any special dietary requirements are needed for the BBQ.


All children will be supervised at all times and are not allowed to leave the club until collected by a parent or guardian. A register is taken every morning before we start and a signing out procedure is also in place. The club and coaches have public liability insurance but cannot be held responsible for loss or damage to personal belongings.
