In order to book and pay for a coaching course within the LTA ClubSpark platform, the person booking must be 16 years of age and over.
This means that children under 16 cannot log in with their own account details and book a course. The parent/guardian of the child will need to register an account and book the course.
Please have a look at this guide on how a Parent/Guardian can register.
