The current group of adults have finished the 6 week course. The 10 on a tuesday are continuing to play, the 8 on a Saturday are on hoilday lots so they are going to drop in to the tuesday session.
That means theres room to start a new block on a Saturday and i'll try a new session on a Thursday as well. I need 6 players for a course to run.
Its 6 weeks long, 9 hours and is a fast track system. In the taster we covered rallying, forehands, backhands, ready position, serving, returning and some points. Everyone had a smile, laughed and joked, ran around and met some new people.

£40 to enrol on the course............if you enjoy it you can join the tennis club at the end of the course instead of the start.

New to Tennis?
We play tennis outside in the fresh air at Blaydon Tennis Club and have 9 floodlit tennis courts so weather permitting we play all year round. We are an accredited Sport England 'club mark' club which in part means we have a safe and secure environment to play and coach tennis. All coaches have an enhanced crb certificate and LTA coaching qualification.
You can try a term of tennis coaching, usually 6 weeks, before you join the tennis club. If you do a second term you have to join. More details above 'Blaydon Tennis Club' and a link to the club website.
We have an extensive programme and will have something for you whether you are 3 or 63, a complete beginner or advanced team player, coming with a friend or by yourself - whatever you want we can provide it.
There's a lot of courses listed on this site so please have a good look around. If you can't find what you are after please contact me at
