For the seniors Alan MacBeath will be putting our beginners and improvers through their paces this Wednesday, 7pm-8pm for beginners and 8pm-9pm for improvers — a great way to get back into tennis for the new season.

On Thursday evening 7pm to 8.30pm our new coach Ian James will offer a new approach to doubles play.

The six planned sessions are set to develop the fundamental tactical and technical foundations to build a solid doubles games. The drills will involve a practice period, a competitive process and then putting the tactics into game play situation.

These will help players to identify how to improve performance and individual aspects of game play. The programme will be built around the principles used by the Bryan brothers, the most successful doubles pair in history, called 'Dr Doubles', with modifications that have taken place over the decades.

Don’t forget all adult classes are free to members, £5 for non-members.
