What is it?
There are loads of ways to get involved in tennis, from women’s Tennis Tuesdays, to cardio tennis or the more traditional game, there’s bound to be something to suit you.
Why is it good for me?
Tennis can help to improve your speed, agility, balance and hand-eye coordination. It offers competition, however serious, for any age group, and is a great way to spend time with friends, or make new ones.
How much does it cost?
Tennis can be free! Great British Tennis Weekend offers you the opportunity to play for free on select weekends at hundreds of venues around the country.
Using a local park court can also be free, or if you want to hire a court at a club, it can cost between £5 and £10 per hour. Coaching sessions will vary depending on the club and coach.
What equipment do I need?
Whether it’s your first time, or first time in a while, all you’ll need is some comfortable clothes, trainers, a racket and some tennis balls.
Ask your club about equipment hire, and softer balls for beginners.
