Adult Coaching

We offer a good variety of Adult Coaching, from Beginners to Liveball (aimed at advanced players), with either PAYG, or short 6 week courses.

PAYG sessions are £6 per hour, short courses are paid for in advance.

 

Tennis Xpress

Learn the basics with a six-week coaching course – Tennis Xpress is all about meeting other players and having fun! The course introduces the basic skills of tennis while introducing players to the scoring system and the rules. Taking place over six weeks, it’s aimed at adults who are either new to the game or a little rusty.

In these sessions, you’ll use specially modified equipment such as slower-bouncing greens and lighter balls and by the end of the course, you will be all set to serve, rally and understand the scoring system. These new skills give the foundation to then continue playing tennis on a regular basis, whether in a social or competitive environment.

Look out for new courses being advertised.

Adult Beginners

Wednesday & Thursday 8-9pm

After completing a Tennis Xpress Course the next step is Beginners Coaching, this group is also suitable for those who have not played for a while but are keen to get back to playing tennis.

Adult Intermediates

This group is suitable for those who have been playing for some time and are working on improving their strokes, positioning around the court and technique development. All shots will be covered over a course of time with decision-making, tactics and positioning covered in these groups as well. Structure of the session will be working on the most important areas to improve your game using a combination of drills, point scenarios and conditioned points, also match play with guidance on positioning and tactics and a chance to put what you have learnt into practice, while having a coach close by to help reinforce the skills learnt into match practice.

At this level we would expect members to be participating at Intermediates Club Sessions and be playing regularly in Tennis Rungs matches.

Liveball

Mondays 8-9pm

Liveball is for our advanced players.  It’s been described as tennis crossed with aerobics, but really, it’s much more than that. Liveball is a doubles-style game in which pairs compete to gain and maintain control of a “champion” side. The challenging team must win four points before the champion team wins two in order to move to the champion side. Each challenge starts with a fed ball and a cross-court shot, followed by plenty of fast-paced doubles action. LiveBall is a 1 hour continuous doubles point. It is fast paced, fun, competitive, amazing doubles training, and a phenomenal cardio-work out.

Warning: it can quickly become addictive! Benefits of LiveBall are – Stellar Cardio Workout, Competitive for All Levels, Improves Doubles Game, Heightens Reaction Speed, Sharpens Passing Shots, Develops Footwork and Agility, Fun and Social!
