Tennis Xpress

Learn to play the easy way

Tennis Xpress is a fun, innovative way of teaching tennis to get players started. It has been developed to help adults into the game by removing many of the barriers associated with learning the sport.

The aim is to get you playing the game quickly by using lower pressure balls, flexible court sizes, simple scoring and simple technical teaching, all which promote a successful learning environment where players gain confidence, skills, and have fun as they serve, rally and score!

Tennis Xpress is a program for beginners.

This covers adults who: Are complete beginners to tennis i.e have never played tennis before. Who have received basic coaching but have never played the game outside of a coaching environment and beginners returning to tennis after a long absence

Courses run during the school terms and bookings are taken term by term.
