Annual Junior Tournament
The Junior Tournament final is held in July every year and the Mini-Tournaments take place at the end of July and beginning of August to decide our best players.
We had the biggest entry to the Junior Tournament this year: Our Winners List will be up on the wall of the Pavilion.

Annual Senior Tournament
Junior Team Players are welcome to enter the annual senior tournaments which are organised by the men’s and ladies’ captains: Finals are held in July and September. Entries need to be in at the start of the season. Look in the pavilion for details.
Social Play and Adult Tournaments Junior Team players are encouraged to enter the adult social tournaments and play throughout the year.
This includes the Generation Game and weekend tournaments during the season which are often accompanied by a barbeque!
Junior Singles Ladder
We have an on-going Junior Singles Ladder at Lytham. Juniors can challenge their way to the top of the ladder by playing matches against players up to two places above them, or as advised by the coach.
This is one of the fastest ways to improve your tennis and great preparation for the main junior tournaments. Contact Club-Coach Greg Porter for details.
Junior Friendly Matches
The coach also organises some friendly matches for the boys and girls to provide more competitive opportunities.
In recent years, our local primary schools Hall Park, St Peters, Ansdell County Primary, Lytham Church of England have either won or reached the finals of the Fylde Schools Tournament, and the Lancashire Youth Games.
