Junior Tennis

At Moseley Tennis Club we nurture our junior tennis players; they’re an integral part of a successful, welcoming club. Our Junior group coaching programme has a pathway open to all levels from absolute beginners to regularly competing juniors.

There are two groups dependent on age, Mini Tennis (4-10 year olds) and Junior Tennis (11-18 year olds).
These groups are further divided up to ensure each junior receives adequate support while playing.

We also offer Junior Club Nights, Junior Tennis Camps and Matchplay's.

Our Junior Programme distinguishes between three different levels:

1. ‘Junior Beginners’ are group sessions designed for thosewho are new to tennis and still looking to build basic skills.

2. ‘Junior Improvers' are group sessions targeting players with some experiences and players who are ready to move up from the Beginners' level.

3. ‘Invitational Squads’ accommodate ambitious players who aim to start competing regularly. Invitational squads are a great motivator for children who want to progress further in tennis. They can train with likeminded juniors to maintain the fun but also to push each other.

Club Coach

'Hi there, my name is Ryan Brazier.

 

I am a level 3 tennis coach who has worked at Moseley for coming up to 5 years and been a tennis coach for 7 years.

Over the years I have worked with various different players ranging from beginners all the way through to performance players.

I enjoy seeing players develop and watch them gain confidence as well as helping each player achieve the goals they set for themselves.

 

The tennis club itself is friendly, has good facilities and encourages every level of player to get involved with the club, whether that be a Beginner, Intermediate or Advanced player. I’ve worked at number of tennis clubs, and I am by far the most comfortable at Moseley. 

 

I look forward to seeing you round the club.

Thanks Ryan Brazier'

I am a level 3 LTA coach and
I have been coaching part-time for 6-7 years.
I am now channelling my passion into tennis full time.

 

I am highly driven to improve players of all abilities to get them where they want with their tennis game.

I have also taken and still take a lot of experiences from matches at that level to my coaching.

 

In the short time that I have been coaching at Moseley Tennis Club, I am finding it a very energetic and passionate club, which are two great things that go into making a good player.

 

I look forward to working with both juniors and adults at the club.'

Josh Price Club Coach at MTC
Club Coach

'Hi, I’m Josh Price.

I’ve been involved with Moseley Tennis Club since the age of 7.

Here at Moseley Tennis Club, I am proud to have been a part of some very successful junior tennis teams representing and captaining Moseley teams at regional & nationally recognised events.

 

In addition to this, I was fortunate enough to have a great tennis schooling and even got the opportunity to play and learn at several academies in Spain.

I also achieved an LTA playing rating of 6.1.

I’m currently a fully accredited LTA Level 2 assistant tennis coach and I’m on course to achieve a level 3 coaching qualification in the near future.

I see my coaching at the club, as a great way for me to give something back to my local community that has taught me many lessons, not just on the court, but off it as well.

I strongly believe that Moseley has helped mould me into the person I am today, and if I can inspire the next generation of local tennis players to pick up a racket and enjoy their tennis at the club, then that would be truly amazing and very rewarding for myself.'

What our members say …

Improvers coaching is perfect for those who want to get back into tennis after some time away or for people wanting to improve their technique.

The flexible approach to pay as you play sessions is very convenient and the coaching standard is excellent.

Member since 2020

I have greatly enjoyed my Improvers Coaching with Ryan.

I do this twice a week and my tennis has greatly improved, with imaginative and fun exercises and with a wide range of people in the classes.

After a 10-year break from tennis, I joined MTC, starting with improvers lessons and one-to-one sessions. 

The 1-2-1 sessions improved my technique significantly. The improvers session helped me to gain confidence in my game and to get to know other club members.

Nena M.

Member since 2020

I joined MTC firstly as a family membership, as two of my children had coaching and played juniors tennis and then as an individual membership as I had more time to play tennis.

There are coaching opportunities for all levels both in groups and for individuals and I have done both and gained a new insight into my play which I can then practise when I am playing more generally.
