Tennis Beginner/Improver Course

This is an  introductory coaching course for players who want to learn the basics of the sport. Designed as a starting point, centred on the use of modified equipment such as slower bouncing green and orange balls to ensure that players quickly learn the game of tennis; being able to serve, rally and score by the end of the course. 

Cardio Tennis session


Looking for a new way to work out?

Cardio Tennis is a fun, sociable group fitness class set on a tennis court and open to people of all ages and abilities.

Supported by music and qualified instructors, you’ll get to hit lots of tennis balls during your class and have a great cardio workout at the same time.

What is a typical class like?

Your trained Cardio Tennis instructor will lead you through a 60 minute class consisting of a short warm up and cool down either side of a 40 minute full body workout.

Warm up - Some dynamic stretching, skills and drills to get your body warm and mind sharp before the workout begins

Aerobic section - Here’s your chance to hit loads of shots, including forehands, backhands, serves and volleys, all mixed with a variety of fitness activities

Tennis section - Put your shots into practice with fun tennis games. You’ll never play one-on-one; your team mates will be with you all the way

Cool down - Well done, you made it! Now it’s time to recover and stretch

What else do I need to know?

What do I need to bring? - Bring along your own racket if you have one, if not don’t worry as you might be able to borrow one from your Cardio Tennis venue. Wear comfortable gym kit and trainers. You’ll be working up a sweat, so don’t forget to bring a water bottle too!

Do I need to be good at tennis? - No! Cardio Tennis is for anyone who wants to get fit and have a go at tennis. The class moves along quickly, so no one will be judging your skills, and it doesn’t matter whether the ball goes in or out.

Do I need to be fit? - No! Cardio Tennis is for anyone who wants to have fun getting fit.

Do I have to be a member of a club? - No!
