At Widnes Tennis Academy our team of LTA Accredited Licenced Professional Tennis Coaches aim to provide a tennis programme to cater for players of all ages and abilities, from beginners and social players to those competing externally in Local League tennis,  County, Regional & National events. 

Our coaching programme is not bookable online, straight away. We believe that players gain the best experience from playing in carefully selected groups with others of a similar standard. If you are interested, please phone the club or email us with a contact phone number and someone will call you back to discuss your requirements and experience then invite you to come for a free trial session.
