All coaches are DBS checked, insured, hold a first aid certificate and are qualified to the required standards set by the Lawn Tennis Association.

The knowledge and experience John has gained is reflected in the programme structure that has had outstanding results within other tennis centres.

LONGER COURSES - We run all our courses in line with the school term and through half term so we can maximise the number of weeks people can learn.

Parent & Toddler Tennis

THIS WILL BE AVAILABLE AFTER HALF TERM - Week commencing 1st November.

The skills required to play the game of tennis can be started at a very young age. Our Parent & Toddler Tennis sessions are a great way for parents to start their 3 to 4 year olds, as many of the skills and games learned in the session can be done at home. The aim of the sessions is to get young children with a parent used to a tennis environment whilst starting to develop their coordination, movement, receptive skills and dexterity in a fun and creative environment.

Mini Tennis

The Mini Tennis programme combined with our awards scheme, helps players progress through achievable targets that are rewarded when completed. Our Mini Tennis Red programme helps children aged 4 to 6 years old to learn the fundamentals for tennis, including coordination, balance, agility, receptive skills and more in a fun environment. As the players improve on these skills they will be able to progress to the next stage for 7 and 8 year olds, which is our Mini Tennis Orange programme. This is played on a ¾ length court with low compression balls and in these sessions the players will continue to improve their physical skills while starting to develop their tactical and technical aspects. The next stage is Mini Tennis Green for 9 and 10 year olds and the players will further advance their tennis skills to play on a full size court with mid-compression balls, which will start to prepare them for the full game.

 Junior Tennis

All 10 to 17 year olds can join our Junior Programme that will eventually help them make the transition into adult tennis. We feel it is very important to get players to understand the game requirements so that they can play as soon as possible. Our entry level to tennis are the Foundation sessions which are designed to help players develop basic techniques and tactics so they can enjoy playing the game. As they progress, the Intermediate sessions offer more opportunity for those players wishing to compete and represent the club at lower team level, with Advanced sessions for top club team players.

Adult Tennis

For all beginner adults or those who play at a low recreation level, we have our very popular Foundation course. The aim of this session is to get people playing the game as fast as possible. This is a wonderful social sport and many people are put off if they think they are not good enough. Everyone can play tennis and the exercises, drills, techniques and progressions ensures that everyone has fun, enjoys learning and improves at the same time. For those adults wishing to build on their basic level, we have an Intermediate session which is aimed to take players into a social competitive environment that improves their matchplay for adult club sessions or lower team level. We also offer a session that is subsidised by the Club and Tennis Works designed to encourage people into or back to tennis. This is our beginner / rusty racket offering.
