Junior Performance Programme

Junior Performance Programme

The aim of our Junior Performance Programme (JPP) is to provide a high-level training environment for junior players who wish to train more intensely and more frequently in order to maximise their tennis potential. 

Our squads have helped develop players representing Middlesex at all ages and we have national champions training with us. Many of our players have gone on to gain scholarships to US Colleges.

  • JPP squads meet the needs and expectations of our players by encompassing the 4 main components of tennis:
    • Technical  • Tactical  • Mental  • Physical

The programme is underpinned by an annual scheme of work which dictates the main theme and areas of focus for each term. Every session is then based around this theme to enable continuity and consistency of training for all players on the JPP.

We feel communication and transparency are crucial in developing strong, long lasting relationships with both our JPP players and their parents.

Every player on our programme receives or has access to

  • Termly reports to help with goal setting.
  • Tournament support at selected events.
  • Overseas training trips and competitions.
  • Representing our junior teams in County and National Competitions.
  • Cumberland Team Clothing.

We also send out regular newsletters and hold termly parent’s meetings so that everyone stays informed and can ask any questions or queries they may have regarding their child’s development.
