Adult Tennis Coaching

Tennis Xpress courses

Learn to play and compete in 6 weeks! 
Tennis Xpress is an active and dynamic introduction to tennis for starter adult players and is recommended by the ITF as the best way to learn the game. The Tennis Xpress course is centred primarily on the use of the slower Green ball (25% slower than the regular Yellow ball). The Green ball is now an official ITF ball for all levels of national competition as per the ITF Rules of Tennis. An important aim of the course is to ensure that starter adult players learn to play the game fast and can serve, rally and score, from the first lesson. By the end of the course you will know the basic techniques, tactics and the Rules of Tennis so you can play competitive points using the Green or Yellow ball on a full court.​
