What's on


Summer 24: Adult Beginner Weds

Read more

Introductory sessions for adults trying tennis for the first time (or the first time in a long while). Learn to rally, score and serve in a progressive and encouraging environment, alongside similar level players. Not only will you develop new skills, confidence and fitness but you will discover why the fun, social elements of tennis make it the most popular lifelong sport in the world.


Summer 24: Adult Intermediate Weds

Read more

For players who have a solid understanding of the game and a basic range of skills, that enable you to play a match. These sessions are more demanding both physically and tactically than beginners sessions. As your range of skills and ball control continue to improve, you’ll give your opponents a run for their money as well as feeling more confident in your positioning and shot selection.
