Tennis Coaching

Tennis coaching is available at the Club with resident coaches Dan Nowell and Tom Perry.

Dan and Tom offer individual lessons as well as a comprehensive weekly programme, catering for all ages and abilities. 

Individual & Group Coaching: Our adult coaching sessions provide a great way to have fun and learn the techniques and tactics needed to get the most out of your tennis, combining coaching, drills and match play. Individual coaching is the ideal way to fulfill your potential as it allows players to focus solely on specific areas of their game.

Mini Tennis: The perfect way to take the 1st steps to learning the skills of the game. With rackets, balls and court size suited according to age to help children master serving, rallying, scoring, moving and co-ordination.  Players develop technique, tactics and an understanding of the rules in a fun themed environment.

Kid’s Camps & Tennis Birthday Parties: We run Kid’s Camps in the school holidays which are a great fun, give your child extra hours on the court improving their skills and wearing them out in the process. And why not let us take care of your child’s birthday party, fun and games on the court followed by birthday tea and cake.

Coaching Sessions:

Tots Tennis Gives your tots the chance to learn the very basics and how to enjoy the game through a series of fun activities. Improving the A, B, C’s (agility, balance and co-ordination) incorporating racket and ball skills.

Mini Red Is played on small courts with short rackets and soft balls. It’s just like the real game and gives players opportunities to have long rallies and play different types of shots.

Mini Orange Is played with shorter rackets, softer balls and courts are bigger and wider than the red stage but still smaller than full-size tennis courts allowing players to develop a rounded game whilst learning a range of techniques and tactics.

Mini Green Is a great way for players to continue their progress from Mini Tennis Orange. It is played on a full size tennis court, with bigger rackets and balls which are a little softer than yellow balls.

12u Squad Is for players that have advanced from the 10u Green ball.  These sessions focus on developing technique to enable players to master a faster and higher bouncing yellow ball.

Red Invitational Is an advanced Mini Red squad where players that have excelled in the school talent ID days and Red development squads will be invited to attend a more intensive session.

Ladies Coaching Morning 1 ½ hours of coaching, drills and match play. Improving tactical intentions and core strategies in a game based environment.  Coffee included with the coach after.

OC Tennis Squad Is for adults and older junior players.  During these sessions players will develop new tactics, techniques that can be transferred into a match situation.

Quick start tennis Is a 6 week course for players new to the game.  The sessions are designed to cover all of the basic strokes and offers players the opportunity to grasp a solid grounding of the game.

Cardio Tennis Is a high energy fitness activity that combines the best features of the sport of tennis with cardiovascular exercise, delivering the ultimate fully body, calorie burning aerobic workout.

Squad Sessions Are for players who are looking to play tournaments and compete for the club.  These sessions will be conducted in a more intense environment preparing players for competitions and match play.  Coaches will use basket drills, live ball feeding, and realistic game situations to develop new techniques and set patterns of play.
