There is a development programme with a number of squads which run through the week. In addition Chapel A has teams in the local Leeds League so there is plenty of opportunity to play. Coach, Alex Thornton, also organises and referees a number of Junior tournaments at Chapel A. Details of the 2019 tournaments can be found on the Competitive Play page. Events are being added all the time so keep checking.
Junior tennis is organised into different colours for different ages and abilities. Children that progress slightly faster will be grouped in standards within their age group rather than pushed into older groups if they are improving quickly.
Mini Red (8&U) – Played on a small court with sponge balls
Mini Orange (9&U) – Played on a reduced full court over a lowered net using extra low compression tennis balls
Mini Green (10&U) – Played on a full court over a full net using lower compression tennis balls
Yellow (10+) - Full tennis
All relevant results from the sessions are recorded and used to improve juniors’ RATINGS. For more information on how the LTA rating system works see www.lta.org.uk
