Coaching

The club runs coaching programmes for adults and juniors under the direct supervision of our highly respected, LTA licensed coach, Damian Lane.

Junior coaching runs over 11 weeks from April to July each year on Friday afternoons.

Adult coaching sessions take place on Tuesday and Friday evenings from April to September, and at weekends from October to March.

Damian is also available for individual coaching. Please contact him directly if you are interested.

Find out more about our coaching programme in more detail by exploring the sections below.

Coaching for adults

Coronavirus update: the activities described on this page are currently suspended  in line with Government guidelines.


We organise mixed ability group coaching for adults, run by our LTA licensed coach Damian Lane.

We run coaching courses all year. Spring and summer sessions run in the evening and on Sunday mornings. In September we switch to daytime sessions at the weekends until March.

Whether you are a beginner looking to get started, someone who is a bit rusty but want to get back into tennis or a regular player keen to develop your game, Damian is expert at tailoring his coaching to enable you to get the most out of the sessions.

Damian structures each session with technical work on one of the four shots followed by high-energy drills to hone skills and match play to put it all into practice in live play.

And it’s a great way of getting to know other club members and arrange practice sessions or matches.

Our Back to Tennis programme is for anyone who hasn’t played tennis for some time – maybe the last time was at school, or you haven’t been on court for a few years – or you are keen to take up tennis for the first time.

We offer an excellent rate for members who book in advance. We also offer a weekly “pay and play” option, but members who have booked the course always take priority, so you may not be able to join a session once we reach the maximum number of participants.

Junior coaching

The club organises very popular junior coaching sessions with our LTA licensed coach Damian Lane. Organised by  our junior coaching coordinator Richard Raynes, these sessions are in demand, with limited places available and registration is now open.

We run sessions for 4 year-olds up to teenagers on Friday afternoons from 4:15pm during the summer term and in September.

This year, we are keen to encourage:

  • parents, whenever possible/willing,  to help out Damian with the running of the sessions (this will be simple and will not require tennis knowledge or fitness!)
  • parents, brothers, sisters , friends etc to play some tennis on the spare courts

The club has junior tennis racquets available to borrow during the sessions.

To register your child or children,  please  download and complete a registration form for each one.
