Tennis for beginners

This will be an  introduction to tennis basics, with the objective of building  fundamental tennis skills in a supportive and relaxed environment, with a  focus on building strength, preventing falls, and improving stamina.

Whatever your level of tennis, fitness or health, you are welcome to this session – however it is not a rehab session, so if you have a serious injury or health condition which prevents you from walking, this will not be quite the right session for you.

Sessions are 11am-12pm on the tennis court, followed by refreshments amd socialising in the clubhouse.

No - it's very laid back. After you've come along once to try it out, you'll be on the list of participants and you can then just turn up any time that the session is on. There is no committment at all. We'll keep you informed about when the sessions are on.


Absolutely not - these sessions are for everyone. If you are new to tennis or just worried about your level, you can opt for the 11am session. If you feel like playing social tennis is for you, join the 12pm. You can always switch sessions.

Note: the exception is if you have a serious injury or health condition. These sessions are not designed to provide rehab or medical care. Feel free to contact us if you're not sure.


Yes 100%. We are delighted to have obtained funding from the National Lottery Community Fund, which means that the sessions are completely free, including refreshments afterwards.
