Welcome to the LATEST programme at Stony Stratford Tennis Club!

The programme offers excellent coach to player ratios and our objective is to ‘inspire tennis excellence’, what ever level of tennis you aspire to play at, there is a course available for you. All coaches are DBS checked, insured, hold a first aid certificate and are qualified to the required standards set by the Lawn Tennis Association.

We have devised a progressive and exciting format for all our sessions that will enhance every player’s game. The programme has been devised by John Cavill, the Director of Tennis for Tennis Works and Stony Stratford Tennis Club. John has been coaching at all levels for the past 23 years in the UK and abroad. The knowledge and experience John has gained is reflected in the programme structure that has had outstanding results within other tennis centres.


PROFESSIONAL PROGRAMME - Progressive weekly structure with awards schemes, parents evenings, wet weather programme, annual presentation evening and more!

MORE CHOICE - Whatever your level, the extensive programme offers many opportunities to get coaching at the club!

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

EXCELLENT STAFF RATIOS - To ensure the quality of the session is high, every session has the appropriate player to coach ratio for the age and ability group they are dealing with.



Where do I begin?

Whether you are new to tennis or have been playing for a while, we have a variety of courses for different age groups and abilities that will help you learn, develop and progress your game. Simply book online or feel free to contact us if you require any further advice.

Playing environment and course prices

Up until early October, all the courses will be outside. Erection of the Air-Dome will result in our courses taking place in a variety of environments. Some will be fully undercover, utilising our wonderful indoor facilities. Others will use the Air-Dome, but also utilise outside courts due to the numbers, knowing that should the weather turn bad, everyone can do 'drills' inside! A few courses will remain on the outside courts however, due to court pressure.

Naturally the course prices reflect the environment in which they take place. The cost of the course regardless of the playing environment changing for some after the dome is in use s averaged out over the entire term.

Here are the costs for members and non-members (25% Club charged supplement)

Indoor -

  • 45 min session/week - Member cost is £7.12 and non-member cost is £8.90
  • 1 hour session/week - Member cost is £9.50 and non-member cost is £11.88
  • 1.5 hour session/week - Member cost is £14.25 and non-member cost is £16.04

Parent & Toddler Tennis

NEW FOR AUTUMN 2018 - New session on Monday and sessions extended to 45 minutes

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.

Our entire Mini Tennis Programme is under cover in the Air-Dome from early October

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.

Our entire Mini Tennis Spring Programme is under cover in the Air-Dome after half term

 Junior Tennis

All 11 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.

Please see individual courses for course access to the Air-Dome after half term

Where a course shows use of the Air-Dome and outside courts, this is due to the size of the course. When the weather is too poor to be coached outside then the entire group will move indoors and focus on 'drills'.

Adult Tennis

NEW FOR AUTUMN 2018 - Adult Xpress and Cardio sessions. Please note these courses are shorter and run for 7 weeks only

For all beginner adults we have specific Beginner couses aimed to get people playing the game as fast as possible. For those who play at a low recreation level, we have our very popular Foundation course. The aim of this session is to get people improving steadily and playing game points 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. Finally for those wanting to improve their general fitness whilst utilising tennis skills we have a Cardio session.
