At Widnes Tennis Club 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 available to book online. We believe that players gain the best experience to start with 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.
