Cultiv8 Tennis provides high-performance coaching services for junior

and full-time tennis players. With

extensive experience of developing players at all stages of the tennis journey

developing the person as well as the player.

The CV8 mission at Queens is to develop a transparent development

pathway to increase opportunities and standards within the Club. We recognise that players (junior and adults) have different

motivations for playing the game and we want to be able to understand these and

deliver appropriate provision for all club members. It is imperative that a

pathway is made explicit so everyone has the opportunity for progression and

Junior Programme

LTA Youth Programmes & Cultiv8 Kids

At Cultiv8 we recognise the importance of creating fun and engaging ways for

learning. As part of our mission we are keen to instil a love of physical

activity, health and well-being in children from a young age that lasts a

lifetime. To help us do this we combine our own Cultiv8 Kids Programme with the

new LTA youth Programme to underpin our session content and delivery. In doing

this we are able to deliver a comprehensive and innovative coaching programme

that will help to make tennis more relevant, accessible, welcoming and

enjoyable for more kids. Sessions are fun, dynamic and provide children with a

sense of progression and a clear pathway for development.

Red: Learn The Basics (Age 4-6) Serve, Rally and Score (Age 6-8)

This is an introduction to tennis. Here, we help kids improve their balance, agility and co-ordination while teaching

them about the sport we love. At this stage it’s not about winning or losing,

it’s just getting to grips with the basics.

As players progress it will start to look a bit more like the tennis you know. You’ll see overarm serves, rallies and

volleys. Coaches will help children to further develop their co-ordination,

balance and speed. We’ll introduce relaxed competition here too.

Orange: Develop a Rounded Game (Age 8-9)

Time to throw in some tactics, problem-solving, and guides to sportsmanship and leadership. At this stage

children will know all of the rules and will be serving and returning in


Green: Test Your Skills (Age 9-10)

This is the big one. It’s time for kids to play on full size courts. Now it’s all about growing their game by fine tuning

and refining the techniques they’ve learned so far.

Yellow: Take Your Skills Further (Age 10+)

Time to find your game. Playing on a full size court with the same size balls the pros use, kids will continue to explore

different styles on the court, and start to choose their own. Our Yellow ball

sessions are split into the following groups: Beginner, Improver &


Junior Full Ball Invitational Sessions

(Age 10 +)

These sessions are for players aged 10 and above who are training regularly throughout the week and taking part in

competitions. Players will be invited to join these sessions directly by a

coach. Please do not book on to this session without a prior discussion with

one of our coaching team.


Senior Programme

The Cultiv8 coaching programme includes

Adult Beginner Sessions and Improver / Advanced sessions, along with Cardio

Tennis Sessions, Tennis Specific Conditioning and Social Tennis.

Adult Beginner Sessions

These sessions are designed for beginners

and will really help players to learn the basic techniques of tennis and

progress their game to the next level. Each session will build upon the

previous one, enabling players to develop their technique on all shots and

combine these with the tactics to be able to play a match effectively.

Adult Improver / Intermediate Session:

This session is aimed at adults who have played tennis before and who have a level of competency across the game but are

still looking to learn, progress and develop. This session will help adults to

get back into tennis if they have previously played but been out of the game for a while, appeal to others who may be looking to develop their technique further or to those who want to just play more and meet new players.

Tennis Conditioning:

This session is similar to a circuit style training class where players will move round different stations to exercise. The circuit will include tennis specific exercises to help condition

the body to enhance tennis strokes, movement patterns and efficiency. The

session will combine tennis instruction and coaching with a more

fitness-focused approach for those who want to train all aspects of their

‘tennis fitness’ in one session.

Cardio Tennis

Cardio Tennis is a fun, sociable group fitness class with a tennis twist. This tennis workout is open to anyone – all

ages and abilities! Great music, great cardio and great people – what’s not to like? You’ll get to hit lots of tennis balls during your class, build up your skills and work up a sweat. You might be wondering, “is tennis good exercise?”

– the short answer is yes! Tennis offers a great workout from a cardio fitness perspective as well as working out muscles across your body, from your core to your glutes. Each class is an hour long, with a short warm-up, a 40-minute full

body workout, and a cool down.
