Tennis Express

Monday: 6.30pm – 7.30pm
Friday: 11.00am – 12.00pm
Sunday: 10.00am – 11.00am

Is an active and dynamic introduction for starter adult players and recommended by the ITF as the best way to learn the game.

Tennis Xpress is centred on the use of slower Green balls (25% slower) and Orange balls (50% slower) to ensure that players quickly learn. The aim is to help starter adults to serve, rally and score (play the game) from the first session and to ensure that by the end of the course all adults will know the basic techniques, tactics and the Rules of Tennis. All adults will be able to play competitive points using the Green ball on a full court.

ABOUT THE COURSE

Each week’s session focuses on a different area of the game and you will improve your ability with a mixture of skills training from professional coaches and match play with other women at your level. We provide the courts, rackets and coaches – you get the fun and can be competitive as you want, without feeling under pressure.

WHO’S IT FOR?

Tennis Tuesdays is for women of an improver and intermediate standard. You can hit the ball over the net and in the court and can have a short rally.
