Kids Teaching Program

The Kids Tennis Program is often the heartbeat of the whole program. 

We use the USTA's ROGY format (Red, Orange, Green Dot and Yellow) balls to make learning fun and progressive. This is where we stand out from other Tennis Professionals. 

Using our tried and tested template for learning, we have extensive success growing programs from scratch into big programs that are the envy of the area.

Small groups, affordable rates and great parent communication is also a key to our success.


Adult Programs

A successful tennis program needs plenty of adult options. Private lessons alone are not enough.


This can include Cardio Tennis classes where fitness and tennis are combined. It can include Tennis 101, where adults learn the basics. Tennis 102 takes learning to the next level.

court Maintenance

BG Tennis has 15+ years on hands on experience maintaining clay courts. This includes thorough knowledge of all daily, weekly and yearly routines. Experience with all year in, year out routines, for example replacing lines and resurfacing courts.

Can also advise on hard court maintenance and suitable court equipment like water fountains, benches and windscreens.

Kids matchPlay

Hand in hand with a Kids' Tennis program is some form of match play exposure. This is only done when kids are ready and will benefit from it.

BG Tennis has many years of experience running successful match play events. These are crucial or a child's development. For the less experienced kids, we make starting points easier as well as the scoring system. 

Matchplay is also offered for more advanced levels.

Many different formats are possible, and BG Tennis excels at running successful events that involve food, drink and sponsored prizes.
