Tennis is the perfect way to get active. Whether you fancy a hit in the park or a cardio-based workout, there is something to suit everyone.

Why is it good for me?

Tennis helps improve your speed, agility, balance and hand-eye coordination, whilst boosting your mental wellbeing by releasing happy endorphins and relieving stress. It is a really sociable sport as it allows you to connect with like-minded people on court.

How much does it cost?

You don’t have to be a member at a club to play tennis. You can hire courts on an hourly basis at local parks, communities and clubs from approximately £5-10.

There are thousands of coaches across the nation who offer individual or group sessions to suit players across all levels – the cost can vary depending on the venue and coach.

What equipment do I need?

Whether you’re a complete beginner or dusting off your racket, all you need is some comfortable clothes, trainers, a racket and balls! Some venues offer equipment hire, including softer balls for beginners.
