Junior Coaching

Adult Coaching

Every Wednesday evening, our new Pay & Play session is perfect for those of you looking to play tennis, but not able to commit to every week. A little bit of coaching, a little bit of skills and drills and a lot of play, these sessions are suitable for all abilities from beginner to advanced.

Open to members and non members, initially, there’s no need to book, just turn up PAY and PLAY. It’s only £10 for each 1.5 hour session from 7.30 to 9.00pm. The bar will be open so, after tennis, you can come and enjoy a drink, take advantage of the low bar prices and FREE pool and darts.
