Coaching at Riverside Tennis Club

We have one of the biggest, most vibrant coaching programmes in the Region, which runs throughout the year both during term time and the holiday periods. 

The majority of our term-time coaching sessions are for our members only, however, we work closely with tons of local schools and Bedford Borough Council to help a huge range of players hit the court. Our popular holiday camps are open to both members and non-members.

We pride ourselves on our 'All Ages, All Abilities, All Welcome' ethos and run sessions for players aged 2 yrs upwards and have a dedicated coaching programme for Disabled Players with our #nobarriers project.

In 2021, we were delighted to win the 'LTA National Disability Award' for our 'No Barriers Disability Programme' and the 'Bedford Club of the Year Award'.


We are proud to have been recognised as an LTA 10U National Performance Centre and one of 62 Performance Programmes across England and Wales to be awarded this status. We have close links with Bedfordshire LTA and many of our performance players compete for Bedfordshire.
