Holiday Camps & Saturday Mornings
We run really popular Saturday morning drop in sessions! Every Saturday of the year except in August and we take 2 or 3 off over Christmas! It's a brilliant way for children to start playing! A lot of our team and county players began playing tennis this way! No commitment needed and you just turn up and sign in! £3 or £3.50 if you need to borrow a racket!
The club runs a cafe as well so parents can sit and have a tea/coffee and bacon sandwich while the kids play!
9.30 - 10.30AM - age 8 & under
10.30 - 11.30AM - age 11 & under
10.30 - 11.30AM - Teens
Our holiday camps are designed to be fun for both beginners and those more advanced players! For ages 4 - 15 we split into groups each day dependent on age and ability. We make sure that all children are happy in their groups so that they will feel confident to build their tennis skills.
Every holiday we run our 9AM - 1PM mornings. Our goal is to coach tennis in a fun environment and we do not see ourselves as childcare providers - we are passionate about sharing our love for tennis! The mornings cost £15 a session and are booked online. We advise booking early to ensure a space, however you can also book on last minute!
In the Easter and Summer holidays we run an offer of booking 3 days in 1 week and then being able to claim a 4th FREE morning by e-mailing myself (ellytennis.Kings@hotmail.com) with the date you want in that holiday.
I began playing tennis and being introduced to the sport at a holiday camp and I feel strongly that this is a great way to give it a go and have fun! It's also a fun way for those more experienced players to get additional coaching and hitting practice whilst having fun with friends!
In the summer holidays we also run some afternoon sessions to allow you to createa full day of tennis. These dates are limited to the first few weeks of the holidays.
The general structure of the morning is;
9AM - 9.30AM Warming up, racket skills
9.30AM - 10.30AM Technical coaching
10.30 - 10.45AM Drink & snack break
10.45 - 11.45AM Technical coaching with focus on serving and moving into points/rallying

Please feel free to get in touch if you have questions! We never cancel and go on whatever the weather! Therefore please bring either raincoats and warm clothes, or sun hats, sun cream and water! We ask children to wear trainers and to being a decent sized packed lunch!
