Frequently Asked Questions?

How do I get my Junior Member(s) playing?


The club runs a very successful Junior Coaching Programme. There are number of excellent coaches linked with our club who will give either individual or group coaching. Please see coaching section for details of junior coaching programmes and other events.




We don’t have a racket could we borrow one?


Tennis rackets and balls are provided for social tennis/coaching sessions. Tennis balls are now available for purchase from the Pro-shop.




My Junior is a member but I don’t play. Are there opportunities for them to play with other juniors?


There are plenty of fun events throughout the year including Teen Tennis, Junior Social Tennis and camps during term holidays. All these are recommended as they make friends while developing a taste for tennis and having fun! For advice please contact: juniorcommittee@donabatetennis.com




How do we organise games with other juniors?


We have Junior social tennis for age 9-12yrs at 16.30-18.00 & Teen Tennis for age 13-18 at 18.00-19.30 each Saturday - please visit section of Junior Social. We also have a Junior Social and Junior Members WhatsApp groups to keep you updated or organise games with juniors of similar age/ability.

Unless you have volunteered to supervise you do not need to stay. During Covid 19, TI guidelines request all U16 players are supervised by parent/guardian while playing (normally U12)

Juniors U12 are to be dropped to and collected from the courts by their parent/guardian. All juniors are to walk to the courts from the car park.
