Most of our juniors are local but many travel from further afield because they know they are going to have a great time at the tennis club.

The club provides a perfect way to make new friends, learn tennis and also some valuable life skills.

“Youngsters learn a lot at Hartford and not just how to play tennis,” said chairman Duncan Applebe.

“Our juniors learn a lot of respect for each other, for adults and about how to behave through others setting them a good example. They never let us down and often go on to great things.”

Junior club nights are supervised and start in March and run through to July . A tuck shop will be available for refreshments.   Junior Club night will run from 4.00pm – 6.00pm for all ages, so come on down straight from school get changed in the clubhouse and get playing for a couple of hours before tea.
The club runs a junior tournament every year.  Application forms are now available click here
