Don’t take our word for it!
I was a bit nervous about going to my first session but it was great!
I’ve meet so many people and socially it’s been fantastic – it’s so much more than just tennis.
I don’t just sit at home wondering what I’m going to do anymore and I’ve made some great friends through it.
It’s given me a lot more confidence to go into a group and mix in.
Walking Tennis Player
I have been coaching a Walking Tennis groups since May 2019. The group has had a variety of players, beginners, older players who haven’t been able to play tennis for a long time and people returning to the game after an injury.
All the players have improved with some even joining the club and moving on to playing standard tennis as well as Walking Tennis.
The sessions being during the off peak times has been very useful for me and they are always enjoyable to coach.
Walking Tennis Coach
This has been a real success for the club. Walking Tennis adds considerably to our ‘offer’. We are proud now to have a programme that enables those who have had injuries or operations to take a slow approach to returning to the full game. Amongst the Walking Tennis members there are some who we expect to gain in confidence and begin to think about playing the full game.
