Adult Coaching

Our adult tennis groups are a great way to improve your tennis whilst having fun with new and old friends, working on your fitness, playing just for social tennis or wanting to be more competitive.

It is £6 per hour to take part in group coaching as a member of Hythe LTC or £8 as a non member (this extra £2 goes straight to the club to help maintain the fantastic facilities).

A Guide to Deciding which Tennis Sessions are best for you.

 

Identifying and judging the ability and level of a person’s play always feel a bit awkward, so to help you find a spot that is comfortable for you, check out the handy guide below.  You can then look at the sessions we offer and understand if this is a session for you.

You can always speak to a coach if you are unsure and they will be able to advise you and make sure you feel at home and get the best out of any session.
