The coaching we provide is indoors or outdoors depending on the venue. We always ensure an outdoor court is safe and viable before using and will always try to source a back up indoor venue should the Great British weather not be on our side.
We provide nets, cones, throw down lines, balls and rackets. The rackets and balls are all suitable to the different sessions – whether that be sponge balls for touchtennis sessions or smaller rackets for tots tennis.
As we have a network of coaches across a large geographical area, we rarely fail to provide cover. However, in the eventuality that cover is not available, the session is postponed and moved to an appropriate alternative date.
You have to be willing to learn and committed to having fun! We work with all abilities from beginners and rustys to competitive, high performers. You will never be matched to someone greatly outside of your range of ability. We monitor your progression closely so that when you improve, we continue to challenge you by pairing you with an appropriately matched player.
You should wear trainers, loose fitting sports clothes with gloves, hat and jacket in cold weather. You should remove all jewelry and anything that could get caught when moving around.
You should bring a drink, hat and sunscreen. If you are particularly attached to your own racket, please bring this along.
Cardio tennis sessions burn up to 1000 calories per hour, so its safe to say this is a pretty hard workout! However, in other sessions including individual tuition, we tailor to your needs. If you want to improve your fitness in sessions, we will incorporate higher impact drills and less rest time. If you are injured or don’t want to exert yourself, we will lower the impact and focus on technique more. We will create a bespoke plan for you or your child when you initially start with Thomas Tennis Academy.
All one hour group coaching sessions cost £8 for an adult, £7 for minis and juniors, £7 for cardio. Individual tuition prices vary from £25-£50 depending on the level of coach you have, where your session takes place and whether have an offer running at that time. Please get in touch to discuss individual tuition prices.
Multi-sports holiday camps cost £40 per day with an early bird booking incentive.
Birthday parties, team building events and occasions vary in price depending on your requirements and timescales.
Schools programme – as a benchmark, we charge £4.50 per child for a 45 minute school session.
