Over three years ago, I attended a tennis beginners session at Helsby tennis club, run by their coach Mike Herd. At the age of 48 and having not played any tennis since the age of 15, I was a little apprehensive to say the least! However, I was surprised to find how enjoyable the coaching sessions were. Mike is very approachable, patient, encouraging individuals of all ages, abilities and fitness levels, to become the best player they can be. My overall fitness has improved significantly and together with a strict diet I have lost 4 stone in weight. Thanks to Mike’s coaching I have found a sport I really enjoy playing and still continue to improve in!
Tennis is regarded as a game for life. This means it doesn’t have to be something you only do when you’re young or only whilst at peak health. You can enjoy playing tennis all life long, unlike a lot of other sports.
You may do other activities that burn calories, but are nowhere near as enjoyable as tennis. Tennis is a full body workout and will help you burn lots of calories, whilst having so much FUN that you’ll forget how much you are pushing yourself.
Learn a new skill, whilst having lots of fun and laughter with other beginner or rusty players.
Tennis Xpress teaches the foundations of the game so that by the end of the six week course you will be able to enjoy fun matches with friends, family or other people that you meet.
You will be taught new skills and shown how to serve, rally and score. By using a variety of ball types and court sizes the game will be made easy and fun, enabling you to gain confidence and enjoy mastering the basics.
Make new friends in a pressure free and relaxed environment.
How good would it be to have new friends to battle it out against and also socialise with? You may meet your future best friend at our sessions.
We offer lots of opportunities for you to enjoy the amazing social side of tennis such as fun team competitions and off court socials.
