Tennis Coaching


Join our Coaching Programme

Our coaching programme provides fantastic opportunities for both adults and juniors to learn and improve their tennis skills at all levels. The junior programme includes group development and performance sessions catering for juniors aiming to be the next Rafael Nadal or Emma Raducanu to those who just want to learn, improve and enjoy the game.

Our junior coaching ethos is designed around the LTA Youth Programme. Players play and learn together in a safe and friendly environment, helping them develop their tennis skills.

For adult players we operate a six week Tennis Xpress programme which is aimed at beginners or returners to the game. Our Thursday Intermediate Coaching & Matchplay session is another great way for more advanced level players looking to improve their skills with a blended mixture of instruction and match play. Team training sessions cater for the more experienced members of the club that are competing more regularly. 

Our coaches also offer private individual lessons.

To deliver these programmes we have a great coaching team:
