Group lessons

Every year (from September to June), Thermae Sports Merchtem organises recreational lessons for children from 3 years and older. The content of the lessons is based on the training concept of Tennis Vlaanderen that is divided into skill levels with different colours. Each lesson, the participating kids learn to play tennis step by step on an adapted court and with a different type of ball. In tennis it is important that you can experience a sense of progress at any age. Together we try to achieve as many goals as possible and we build a perspective!

White: Children aged between 3 and 5

In this course, we dive into the world of tennis for the very first time! The kids not only get to work with different types of balls (from balloons to sponge balls), but they also learn in a fun way how to move and play. They experience unforgettable sports moments and meet new friends. In addition, the motor system development is stimulated with coordination and general movement exercises. After all, this is the first step towards learning the different techniques.

Teen tennis: for teens aged 13 to 15

The course targets two target groups: players who move on from KidsTennis Green, and new players who want to start playing tennis at a later age. This age group will evolve faster due to their physical build and coordinative development. Players aged 13 to 15 learn to serve, rally and score more easily.
