Warwick Boat Club is primarily a family club. We have a strong junior coaching programme, which remains active throughout the year. We are also recognised as a national accredited mini tennis centre. The club has the 'Clubmark' accreditation, so it is recognised as being a centre of excellence for mini and junior tennis, and adheres to best practice in relation to child protection and health and safety.
We believe that The Warwick Boat Club’s future lies with the development of its young players and the club is firmly committed to youth development. This is evident in the array of courses and social fixtures that are set up by our Manager of Tennis and the Coaches. We also visit many local schools, and coach students, many of which are invited to the club for further coaching and participation.
Our comprehensive coaching programme offers opportunities for development of 4 to 10 year olds with mini green, orange and red tennis courses. For our 10 to 16 year olds we run development and progression courses. We aim to provide opportunities for all our players to turn talent into achievement, whilst ensuring that our ethos remains that tennis should be fun and played in a relaxed family environment.
Our juniors have many opportunities for match play, including closed tournaments, box leagues, South Warwickshire squads and National junior club leagues.
Warwick Boat Club is family orientated with emphasis on social interaction involving both parents and children. There are regular opportunities through arranged activities to help with this aspect of club life.
