County Coaching is available to selected players from age 5-18. Each age group has a County Captain who takes monthly training sessions at the weekend. The training acts as preparation for national events such as the Aegon County Cup and Aegon Premier League. . There are also opportunities for squad players to compete in inter county friendlies throughout the year. Captains are always keen to look at new players for the squads and where appropriate will invite players to an assessment. If you would like to find out more about the junior county set up please contact Neil Plaskett, Norfolk Junior Team Manager on neil.plaskett@norfolktennis.org

If you are currently coaching a player who may benefit from the above programme please contact Neil on the above email.
