  • Based on the LTA’s successful mini tennis scheme, the tennis coaching programme at Billesley gives an introduction to tennis for children between 3 and 10 years old.

    Using a four stage approach with the stages progressing from Tots, Redand Orange to Green, each stage has its own court size and type of ball. From Tots learning fundamental basics such as balance and coordination alongside more specific racket and ball skills, right the way up to Green on full size courts with lower pressure balls to improve all aspects of their game we provide a progressive and enjoyable introduction and guide to and through the game.

    The stages built into their program have their own rewards to recognise achievement and encourage the players to develop their skills which aids player controlled progression.

  • All tennis lessons at Billesley Indoor Tennis Centre are structured in line with the latest LTA guidelines. This means that every lesson is delivered so that technique is learnt in conjunction with  tactics so that the skill is easily transferable to a match situation.


    Adult Beginner


    This course is aimed at players who have never played the game before. The main aim of the course is to give players the ability to “Serve, Rally and Score” so that they leave with the ability to PLAY tennis. The basic techniques for forehand, backhand, volley and serve are all covered.


    Adult Improver


    For players who have a little more playing experience and are looking to learn some slightly more advanced techniques. This course covers the same shots as the beginner course, but in greater detail adding more variety to your game as well as covering  some specialist shots. The course will also cover a wider variety of tactics helping you to build points and become a better match player and not just a better “hitter”.


    Drills and Tactics

    This course is aimed at players who want to train rather than be taught. This means that the coach will set up exercises that are there to improve your game through repetition and practice and also to improve your tactical understanding of the game. The coach will help make some changes to technique but the main focus is on hitting  and lots and lots of shots.


    Rusty Rackets


    For players who have had a prolonged absence from tennis and who wish to rediscover their tennis skills. The 6 week course will reintroduce you to the game of tennis and help you establish your playing style once again.
