The tennis clinics can be booked in advance (visit website to download form) or you can chance it and book on the day – however it’s a popular program and often fully subscribed.  We found when we attended a number of families booked for the full week to get the discount – and then if it was blisteringly hot (or a complete wash out) they skipped that day.  Otherwise you can pick and choose your sessions and days as you choose.

Older children (8 to 14 years) can do a full day, but the younger children can either do a two hour or half day session.  The sessions include a snack break in the park, lots of ball games and tennis skills.  NB if your child is a pre-schooler and hasn’t been exposed to team sports before these sessions might be intimidating – depending on the day (and weather) the groups can be quite large.
