We are really excited to be launching a new coaching programme at Ilmington Multi-Sports Club . As a company we currently work with 32 tennis clubs and feel we have developed a really exciting tennis offering which has something for everyone. i2c runs children’s programmes that are active, fun, safe and educational, while always helping players to develop the sound basics of tennis. Please read on for more information and details on how to book our upcoming JUNIOR CAMP, JUNIOR SESSIONS & ADULT COACHING TASTERS.


Our Concept

We understand that everybody has a busy lifestyle these days. We have created a programme that is really flexible and allows for new groups to be started on days and at times that are convenient to you. Our smaller focus groups have a maximum of 5 players in each group. We also run training groups for situations where you would benefit more from playing lots of different game styles.


Junior Launch

We will start with a morning tennis camp on Friday 1st September from 9.00-12.00. This will be Open to all ages and the cost for the session will be £12.00. To book this please go to and select COACHING on the menu. 


Our other junior launch activity will be for mini-tennis (ages 4-10 years) on Tuesday 5th September and for junior players (ages 11-17 years) on Thursday 7th September. These two sessions will be fun games and drills giving you a chance to meet Charlotte who will be the junior coach at the club. This initial session is FREE OF CHARGE but we would like you to book via the following link so that we have an idea of numbers - and select COACHING on the menu.
