Top tennis coaching returns to Saltford Tennis Club this month (September) courtesy of the Team Bath Tennis programme.

Saltford is the first Team Bath Tennis hub club, with Team Bath coaches offering coaching to players of all ages and ability levels.

The autumn coaching programme runs from 10 September through to 20 December and has been launched after a successful pilot project.

The programme offers 14 weeks of coaching for young players on Saturday mornings and Wednesday afternoons or early evenings, depending on age.

Mini and junior tennis

These are available at mini red level for players aged 8 and under, mini orange for 9 and under, and mini green for players aged 10 and under, and junior programmes for players in the 12 and under, 14 and under and 16 and under age groups.

School children can take advantage of a free tennis session offer too. For details please see the tennis courses and classes page on the Team Bath website.

Plenty for adults

There is also an adult session available for beginners and improvers that looks at techniques and tactics at 7pm on Wednesdays, and a high tempo cardio tennis fitness session available on a pay & play basis at 8pm on Wednesdays.

You can also arrange individual coaching sessions if you want to brush up your game.

It all takes place on the three outdoor tennis at Saltford Tennis Club, at Wedmore Road, Saltford.

The sessions are being run by  head coach Tom Ellis, a Level 3 qualified LTA coach. He said: “Our coaching sessions are targeted at anyone and everyone, from young children who are maybe trying tennis for the first time, up to people who may have been playing for years and want to get fitter or improve their game.”
