Tennis Xpress

Tennis Xpress six-week coaching course

Learn the basics with a six-week coaching course - Tennis Xpress is all about meeting other players and having fun! The course introduces the basic skills of tennis while introducing players to the scoring system and the rules. Taking place over six weeks, it's aimed at adults who are either new to the game or a little rusty. 

In these sessions, you'll use specially modified equipment such as slower-bouncing greens and lighter balls and by the end of the course, you will be all set to serve, rally and understand the scoring system. These new skills give the foundation to then continue playing tennis on a regular basis, whether in a social or competitive environment.

Don't just take our word for it. Here are a few things Tennis Xpress players have said about the course:

"I wanted to learn a new sport and always like the idea of playing tennis. Within 6 weeks I learned to serve, rally and win matches."
Bill, from Scotland -

"I hadn't played tennis since school and I'm really enjoying playing again with all the other people I have met on the course."
Charlotte, 35, from Suffolk
