Our tennis coaching team provides lessons organised into 3 month courses starting in January, April and September. Courses for juniors and minis are on Saturdays mornings, Sunday Mornings and Monday afternoons, those for adults are on Monday and Wednesday evenings. Individual coaching is also available at other times and junior camps are run in the school holidays. Click below for Coaching Rates and a Coaching Registration Form which give details of dates, times and cost.
Adult group coaching lessons are on Monday evenings at 6:30 for Beginners and at 7:30 for Improvers. On Wednesday evenings the lesson at 6:30 is for Beginners and Improvers.
Adult Beginners receive a number of group coaching sessions within their initial subscription fee. The number depends on when in the year they join the club.
Junior coaching takes place every Saturday morning between 11:00 and 12:00 and on Monday evenings from 5:30 – 6:30. Juniors (11 – 18) use normal (yellow) tennis balls.
Mini-Tennis is for juniors who are 10 years and under. The emphasis is very much on fun and movement whilst giving a gentle introduction to the basic strokes and concepts of tennis. Soft balls are used, which get to be more lively as age (and ability) increases. Although ages are approximate, those aged 8 and under use RED balls, 8-9 ORANGE balls and 9-10 GREEN balls.
Mini-Tennis coaching takes place every Saturday morning between 9:00 and 11:00, 9:00 for Mini Red and 10:00 for Mini Orange/Green and on Monday evenings, 4:45 for Mini Red and 5:30 for Mini Orange/Green. Recently started is the Mini Red class on Sunday mornings at 9:00. Our coach believes 60 minutes is too long for under 8’s, therefore, Mini Red sessions are 45 minutes duration instead of the usual 60 minutes and are correspondingly cheaper.
Undoubtedly one-to-one coaching is the best and fastest way to improve your shots. You get to choose what you want to work on and you get the coach’s undivided attention. It is worth considering what topics you’ld like the coach to work with you on beforehand so that you get the most from the session. NOTE: Lessons cancelled with less than 24 hours notice will be subject to a cancellation fee as shown on the Coaching Rates notice.
Small Group Coaching
As an alternative to individual coaching, you can always get one, two or three players to join you and share the cost.
NOTE: Refunds for non-completion of a course will not be given except in the case of severe injury or illness. However, the coach will consider crediting players who miss one or two lessons for good reason. Should lessons be cancelled by the coach due to bad weather or his non-availability, he will reschedule the lessons if possible. If that is not possible, credit will be carried forward to the next course.
