A professional team of LTA qualified coaches will lead this course, which caters for tennis players of all abilities. Whatever your needs, the coaches will assess your game, teach you in small groups of similar ability, work on your faults and improve them both technically and tactically. At all levels, the emphasis will be on enjoyment while improving. There will be a fun tournament at the end of the week.
