Team Training

These sessions will be aimed at players likely to represent AECC in either the LTA Team Tennis or Junior North East Cheshire League (JNECL) teams
Sessions will predominantly cover all tactical aspects of the game whilst creating a team spirit amongst the players


Please note that match-play is an integral part of the tennis coaching programme - so all children on the coaching programme will experience match-play from an early age
