If your child is reluctant to take part in the winter due to the cold/rain etc there is now no excuse!

I’m starting four indoor sessions in Grappenhall; two Tiny Tennis sessions for children aged 2-4 & two Mini Tennis sessions for children aged 5-8 years.

The Tiny Tennis classes will be on Saturdays & Wednesdays at the Grappenhall Community Centre on Bellhouse Lane.

Saturdays 9.45-10.30am 2/11-14/12* – £36.25 (5 weeks)
Wednesdays 9.15-10.15am  6/11-18/12  – £50.75 (7 weeks)

*excluding 9/11 & 23/11 (the hall is already booked out)

In my Tiny Tennis classes, I teach basic technique but the real emphasis is on fun games & drills that help develop co-ordination, balance & agility.

We practise lots of underarm & overarm throwing which is great practice for hitting serves & groundstrokes. The children have a great time & learn skills that provide a great foundation for not only tennis but a whole host of other sports.

The Mini Tennis classes will be on Thursdays & Fridays after school at St. Wilfrid’s Parish Hall on Church Lane.

Thursdays 3.55-4.55pm 7/11-19/12 – £50.75 (7 weeks)
Fridays 4.30-5.30pm  15/11-20/12  – £43.50 (6 weeks)

In my Mini Tennis lessons, children learn how to play all the main shots & develop a basic understanding of tactics. As they improve, players are encouraged to use spin to control the ball & regulate the speed & depth of their shots.

I also run tournaments & team matches for those who want to test their skills in a more competitive environment.

Please get in touch if you’d like more info on any of these sessions.
