Coaching, classes and club programme
An all-inclusive tennis programme plus a LTA Local Player Development Centre (LPDC)
Delivered by a team of experienced and qualified coaches, Team Bath Tennis’ club programme is an all-inclusive tennis programme which spans over three terms per year (aligned with school terms) and holiday camps.
Our Vision: Train-Play-Compete
800/400: To have 800 people training within the University of Bath and 400 training on community sites all within our Train-Play-Compete framework.
To be a nationally recognised community tennis programme that is accessible, progressive, energetic and competitive.
Quality – be the best you can be;
Energy – radiate energy & passion;
Progressive – always looking to improve;
Trust – honesty and transparency.
We aim to create a programme with these values in mind and hope that you see this on court each and every session
We have approaching 1,000 coaching bookings at the University of Bath tennis centre which includes local venues Monkton Prep School, Wellow Valley Tennis and Saltford Tennis Club. New players and seasoned pros alike are welcome!
Additionally, as part of the national LTA performance pathway, Team Bath Tennis has been named as a LTA Local Player Development Centre. We will continue to offer affordable performance training for children aged ten and under in the Avon, Wiltshire and Somerset area. For full details on the programme, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
Furthermore, the club programme regularly holds competitions for mini and junior tennis players alike, including our World Tour internal tournament and LTA events.

Summer 2019 Timetable [PDF]
We run classes for all ages; from parents and toddlers (3-year olds), tots (4 and 5-year olds) and under-10s, to teenage and adult tennis.
External tennis venues
If you cannot make the times offered at the University or love your tennis at the University so much you want to do additional sessions, we offer something for everybody at our outreach venues:
Saltford Tennis Club
Wellow Valley Tennis
We also offer sessions at Wellow Valley Tennis, a local tennis club just south of Bath.
Coaching bookings: Wellow Valley Tennis website [external link].
Saltford is a three-court, floodlit club, and Wellow is a two-court, floodlit club with a friendly club atmosphere which compliments the University well. Memberships at both venues are relatively cheap and offer big reductions on course costs and unlimited court use.
Courses also run at Monkton Prep School on Tuesday evenings and Monkton Senior School on Friday evenings.
Frome Tennis Club
We will be running courses at Frome Tennis Club from Summer 2019.
We run hugely-popular tennis camps during school holidays. Click here for more information.
Our coaches are available for one-to-one sessions for bespoke individual improvement. For pricing, contact details and availability, see: Team Bath Tennis Coaching [PDF]
Please note: It is our philosophy that young players learn the basics of the game within group lessons before looking at individual lessons. Once your child is engaged and enjoying their tennis with us the next step is to look for individual lessons which we can offer through our team of qualified coaches.
As we run a very busy centre the times offered are limited and most often available at the weekends, early mornings or later in the evenings. Please contact the coaches directly for their specific availability.
A great tournament venue
We offer year-round mini tournaments for mini red, orange and green players. Our tournaments are run by experienced referees and organisers.
For details about our Grade 5 tournaments, please contact Tom Osborne.
For Grade 2-4 tournaments, please contact Chris Matthews at Compete who runs these tournament out of the University.
