July 2020 update 

Whether you've just discovered tennis or been playing a while if you want to improve we now have some coaching sessions available. We'll be starting off with three options for adults, all run by LTA Level 3 coach Alison Kelly on Thursday 9th July, before moving to the same times on Tuesdays starting on 14th July.
Due to current restrictions each session is limited to 5 people so you will need to book your place by emailing withnellfoldtennis@gmail.com, stating which session and which day but no more than one week in advance please. Emailed response will let you know if you're booked in or on the waiting list. Those on the list will have priority for next equivalent session. If you need to cancel please do so as soon as possible, your place can be filled from the waiting list. (Eventually this should be set up through the web-site with on-line booking and payment but I need to make sure I set it up right before letting it loose on you.) All sessions £5 per person, pay on the day (contactless available). 
5pm - 6pm Adult Beginners - Just started, know which end of a racquet to hold but that's about it. Work on technique for all the basic strokes including serving plus scoring and playing social games.
6pm - 7pm Adult Improvers - Can rally (sometimes) and have fun playing but want more consistency and variety of shots. Improve your technique, power and court positioning. 
7pm-8pm Adult Advanced - Regular match/team player, practice drills to embed shot making, work on tactics, doubles play and strategy.
Adults in this case means 13/14+. Junior sessions will follow, Mini Red/Tots (4 to 8 yo beginners) and Mini Orang/Green (8+ improvers). Sessions will probably be before the adult sessions on Tuesdays depending on demand. Please email if you're interested with number of children and which group. Junior sessions will also be limited to 5 (hence splitting age groups) and may also be £5.
It's all a bit trial and error at the moment, if the demand is there we'll look to add more sessions, plus allowed numbers per group (and therefore cost per person) may well change in the near future. Expect frequent updates!
Look forward to seeing you
