Junior Offering

The club welcomes and encourages competitive and fun tennis for all standards of players and new joiners, regardless of Juniors age, with a friendly modern vibe. This season we are making improvements to develop our Young Junior section – for both NEW and existing players who have enjoyed coaching sessions in previous years.

For Junior players (up to 13 years old and beyond) we are looking to offer more tennis events and fun days to grow tennis participation and encourage more regular involvement with the club throughout the season. Mindful of current social distancing guidelines!

New Juniors joining will receive their Sonning tennis baseball cap available at Family and coaching sessions.

Court Booking

During COVID the club introduced a new booking system. This has worked well and has meant families can better plan their sessions. Here is a link to the booking system.

What do I need to do?

  • Under 13s should always be supervised either by a member adult on court or non-member adult beside the court to ensure club rules are followed
  • Please book a court before turning up to play to avoid unnecessary journeys
  • Remember to maintain social distancing from your friend on the court
  • Limit practice/tennis play time to an hour.
  • The clubhouse remains ‘closed’ although access is still permitted to members for the First Aid kit or access to toilet.
  • Bring your own equipment
  • Use hand sanitizer before and after entering the court as well as after leaving the court.
  • Remember to lock everything and lower the nets.
