Tennis Coaching

Tennis coaching is available at the Club with myself, the club’s resident coach Leon Jennings.

Our adult group 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 matchplay. Individual coaching is the ideal way to fulfil your potential, working closely on developing efficient, effortless technique and a grasp of tactics to give you the edge over your competition.

From September 2013, we have a brand new tennis programme in place. Whether you’re the next Andy Murray or Laura Robson or want to play for the sheer fun, we have a group for you.

Providing there are available places you can join a group mid way through the term. Or if you would like to try out a session before committing to the rest of the term or if you can’t commit to the whole term and would like to come along to the odd session, this may too be possible if the group isn’t already full. To enquire about availability, please give us a call.

Mini Tennis will go ahead on the squash courts in bad weather.

 

Club Sessions:

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.

Yellow: is played on full court with yellow tennis balls. There is no designated age to progress to full tennis but the average age tends to be around 11 years old.

Tennis Morning: is on every week though I will not be in attendance in school holidays.                                                                                                       9.30-10.00am Hitting lots of forehands, backhands, volleys, smashes, serves and returns.                                                             10.00-11.30am Organised doubles where I join in if needed and offer some basic doubles tactics to help you get the most out of your morning.                                                                                  11.30-12.00pm An extra half an hour where I leave you with the balls for anyone wishing to get an extra half an hour practice.

Coaching Morning: Two hours of coaching, drills and matchplay. Improving the tactical intentions and core strategies in the different game situations.

Advanced Coaching: A Saturday coaching session for those looking to take their matchplay to the next level, tweaking technique and improving tactics and strategy in a realistic environment.

Beginners Coaching: A session for anyone new to the game who would like to gain more confidence on the court. Working a lot on the basic techniques and tactics of the game.
