Our goal is to promote and grow participation in tennis and to help everyone fulfil their potential. We believe that it’s one of the few sports that everyone can enjoy regardless of age or ability. Whether you just want to play for fun, or prefer the cut and thrust of competitive matches, it’s a great way to keep fit no matter how old you are!
Our coaching programmes have encouraged many people to take up the game for the first time and in so doing have helped the clubs, with which we partner, to expand their membership.
At each of the clubs that we support we install a team of coaches capable of meeting their specific needs. This can include; one to one coaching, group sessions, adult cardio tennis and junior holiday programmes.
