Adult Coaching


Adult coaching is available in groups or one to one sessions for the complete beginner right through to those who have played for many years.


Group lessons are run during the term times, weekday evenings and weekends. In addition the club runs Pay & Play sessions for those members who cannot commit to a full term. Visitors are also welcome to come and try tennis in these sessions.


Coaching groups are open to both members and non-members. Non-members are able to participate in up to 12 weeks of coaching but after this must take out membership with Chapel A. During this period coaching groups are welcome to join in the Improver/Rusty Racquets Club Play sessions but should check first with their coach that they are suitable and if a non-member pay a £5 visitor fee.

Junior Coaching

The club has over 300 children in his weekday and weekend coaching programmes, starting with Mini Tennis at 6 through to older teenagers.


Children’s groups are arranged in blocks of 12 weeks to fit with school terms and are 45 minutes for Mini Tennis and 1 hour for older children (10+). They are held after school and at weekends.


Lessons can also be organised through the club, please contact Alex Thornton
