UPCOMING JUNIOR CAMPS
None scheduled for now.
Coaching for Juniors
We are lucky enough to offer top-class coaching for Juniors of all ages and standards. Under the guidance of our Coaches, many of our Junior members have advanced from fun club events to external Tournaments and Opens and we are hugely proud of all our young members past and present.
Group coaching is available seven days a week and runs during the school term from September to June. Individual coaching is also available on request.
Group coaching starts September 9th. More details here.
Tennis for Fun
We run regular social activities for junior members including Pizza Tournaments and Family Days. These are open to juniors of all tennis levels and are a great way for children and parents to get to know each other.
Sign-up sheets are posted on the noticeboard in the club a week or two before each event and all Junior members are encouraged to take part.
Keep an eye on our Calendar for upcoming events.
Junior Ladder, Round Robin Table, Handicaps & Championships
Once a junior member begins to demonstrate a greater interest in playing tennis, he or she may be ranked by our coaches and included on the junior ladder. This allows coaches to gauge progression among junior members and to select league teams. The ladder is posted on the club noticeboard and aims to encourage junior members to play more matches against each other. Those on the ladder can challenge one another and gain match experience.

Many Monkstown Juniors have advanced to competing in junior league tennis and Stars ’n Stripes. Please speak to our coaches if your child is interested in participating in external tournaments and they can guide you through the process.
Stars & Stripes is a junior tennis league involving local tennis clubs and is open to junior players who are ranked outside the top 70 LeinsterTennis ranking. It allows junior players to play inter-club tennis in a friendly but competitive spirit.
There are two age categories: U12 & U14, and on each team there are 6 boys and 6 girls.
The current U12 Stars and Stripes started 14/09/19 and runs for 5 weeks.
The U14 league runs from November 2019 and the sign-up sheet will be up on the noticeboard in the weeks before it starts.

During the months of July & August, Juniors between the ages of 8 and 14 are welcome in the club between the hours of:
10:00am - 1:00 pm and 2:15pm - 5:00pm.
During these hours a Day Manager is present and runs fun mini-tournaments and games.
Juniors must leave the Club between 1:00pm and 2:15pm and parents/guardians are responsible for their children during this time.
