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 Teams Lead and Administration Officer on email@example.com
If you are currently coaching a player who may benefit from the above programme please contact Neil on the above email.
Junior players are encouraged to play in fun competition once they have settled into a regular coaching programme.
The best local competition to start in is the Team Tennis Event at Easton & Otley College Tennis Centre. Teams are entered by clubs and although players are competing individually, their scores contribute to overall team result. These events are for players aged 5-10 and are divided into Red, Orange, Green ball categories. Please return for an updated schedule asap. If you would like to take part please talk to your club coach or contact Easton direct on this number: 01603 731302 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
