What you can already do
If you sign up for a beginner’s coaching session, your coach would expect you to be exactly that: a beginner! You may not have played the game before, and you are unlikely to be familiar with technical shots or game tactics. What our coaches like to see is a passion for sport and a willingness to learn. It also helps to have a basic level of fitness so that you can move around the court.
What you want to master
To take you from a beginner to an intermediate tennis player, there are a number of skills you’ll want to get to grips with. You’ll need to gain an understanding of the basic techniques, movements and rules of the game, including: forehand, backhand, volley and serving. Once you’ve got these under your belt, you can experience returning shots, some basic match tactics and get involved in a tournament with players of your level.
Our ‘green group’ coaching sessions are the perfect way to get you hitting balls for the first time. You’ll cover the basics and at the end of the week we host a tournament so you can practice your newly learned skills. We keep sessions fun so that you are motivated to keep practicing and recommend that you practice during ‘free play’ time when the courts are available. Looking for the best beachclubs for beginners?
