Coaching for adults

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 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.

New this year, 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.

Early Summer Coaching Programme

Coaching continues on Tuesdays and Fridays until the 2nd and 5th July respectively at the following times:
