50 Plus Coaching Sponsored by Churchill Retirement Living Tuesdays at 9:00 am
Whatever your age, tennis is suitable for you. These sessions, sponsored by Churchill Retirement Living, aim to teach the basics of tennis but are suitable for both beginners and intermediate players. After the session, we often enjoy coffee in the function room. If you enjoy socialising and are over 50, then Tuesday mornings are for you. The cost is £4.00 per session
Ladies Beginners Tuesdays 11:00-12:00
These sessions are suitable for absolute beginners or those who have not played for a while. The sessions are normally run by Luisa Cowper, LTA Senior Performance Coach. The cost is £5 per session.
Rusty Rackets Tuesdays 7:30-8:30 pm
This session is aimed at adults who are either new to the game or haven’t played for a long time. Over a period of time, the sessions will aim to cover the basic technique of all shots including groundstrokes, volleys and serves. The coach will also illustrate how to use these shots in a tactical situation. The sessions will also try to cover other key concepts in tennis such as footwork, positioning as well as some match-play. Sessions are open to non-members for a limited period of time (usually around 6 – 8 weeks)
The cost of each lesson is £5 but if you join the tennis club, you will get the first 6 lessons free
Adult Improvers Tuesdays 8:30-9:30 pm
This session is aimed at adults who have either progressed from the rusty rackets sessions or who have been playing at the club for a while and who are looking to glean some extra tips in order to progress to team tennis. Compared to rusty rackets, these sessions tend to focus more on tactics and match-play skills in both singles and doubles.
The cost is £5 per session.

This session includes tennis as well as coffee and is taken by the head coach Chris Johnson.

After the lesson, you can enjoy chatting with fellow players whilst consuming coffee and cake, often made by Chris personally.

(£75 per term for members/£85 for non-members)

Junior night takes place on Fridays during term-time and coaching is available for the following age groups:
6:00-7:00 pm U4- U10.
7:00-8:00 pm U11-U16.
The sessions are free for members and £4 for non-members. The lessons are less formal than a typical group coaching session, but nevertheless we will always try to instil the basics of technique and tactics. There is also a high focus on fun activities and match-play.
On Friday nights, juniors have priority on the courts, so any junior of any age wishing to play may do so. During the winter time, tokens for the floodlights will be provided by the tennis club on a Friday night.
Junior night is also a great social occasion. Our licensed bar is open from 6:00 pm and often parents relax with a drink while watching their children play. We also have a tuck shop in the kitchen which is open from 7:00 pm.
We really do try to make junior night as much of a social event as possible and we have various events throughout the year including puzzle night, quiz night, Halloween, Christmas and Easter Egg hunts. At the end of the summer, we will (weather permitting) have a BBQ to mark the end of junior night for the summer holidays.
