Inclusive, friendly and fun sessions for all

Our tennis sessions are aimed predominantly at players who would find it difficult to run on a tennis court and they would therefore qualify to compete at wheelchair tennis.
Welcoming to all players in terms of age and abilities; from juniors to more seasoned players and from beginners to club, league or national players.

 

Have fun, be active and develop your tennis skills

Our tennis sessions have the potential of taking part in one of the local wheelchair tennis competitions or to progress further to a national competition.
Coaching sessions are played on a full court and offer various coached drills providing good practice and game play skills.
