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

Our Vision

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.

Our Mission

To be a nationally recognised community tennis programme that is accessible, progressive, energetic and competitive.

Our Values

Quality – be the best you can be;

Energy – radiate energy & passion;

Progressive – always looking to improve;

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

Furthermore, the club programme regularly holds competitions for mini and junior tennis players alike, including our World Tour internal tournament and LTA events.

Holiday camps

We run hugely-popular tennis camps during school holidays. Click here for more information.

Individual lessons

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.
