Tennis For Free

Shirley Park is working in partnership with the Tennis For Free charity which aims to provide FREE weekly coach led tennis sessions to local communities across the UK. All members of the public are welcome regardless of age or standard, the sessions are family oriented suited for the whole family. Please see dates and times of our Tennis For Free sessions below, all sessions take place on the Shirley Park courts: 



1. Saturdays 10.30-11.30am, Parent and Child: 1 hour 'coach led' session where parents and their children (8 & Under) will work through a series of fun stations - all aimed at improving tennis skills. Equipment will be left out from 11.30-12.30pm for free play so the parents and children can do as they please. 

2. Saturdays 10.30-11.30am, Beginner Tennis: A 'coach led' session suited to players (9 & over) who aren't able to rally on a full size tennis court. We use low compression balls.

3. Saturdays 10.30-11.30am, Improver + Session: 'Coach led' session for players who are capable of rallying on a full size tennis court with normal tennis balls.

4. Saturdays 11.30-12.30pm, Open Play: The coach will be available to support if necessary but the session will be led by the group. 


It is important to note that these are not coaching sessions (no technical help) but the coach will be leading the session and providing activites to do. If you would like your child to receive technical coaching we have a 12 & Under session 12.30-13.30 every Saturday.
