Improve your game....!

Adult and junior tennis coaching is available for beginners, improvers or capable players, in either groups or individual lessons at the Centre. Private coaching lessons are also available from the coaches.

There are several coaches available for tuition from the Centre. Please contact the Coaching Organiser for further information. Coaches at Grimsby Tennis Centre have been approved to coach by the Directors of the Centre and all have signed up to the Child Protection Policy.

Non-members can be coached at the Centre but must pay a surcharge for the use of the courts. Only members can coach at the Centre.

Adults

Some may say, "That it is difficult to teach an old dog new tricks" - but not at Grimsby Tennis Centre! Almost without exception, all top players have a coach - and why should this be any different for the average tennis player? Even if it just to consolidate what you do on court, a coach can help.

For those new to the game there are group sessions available. Coach TBA specialises in teaching new adults and encouraging those that have returned to the game.


Juniors

Our job is not to help kids become touring professionals or even to play just like the professionals we see on TV.
Our job is to help youngsters learn how to play tennis for the rest of their lives. And that means teaching them everything about the game.

Our primary Junior Tennis Coaching Sessions are on Saturday mornings starting at 9:00am for beginners. There are three sessions with the most capable players attending at 11:00am - all for a nominal fee. Membership of the Grimsby Tennis Centre is not required to attend Saturday morning sessions, but Membership is required to play at other times.

Mini Tennis is the best way to learn tennis and courses are now available for children up to the age of 10 years of age. Mini tennis is played indoors at the Grimsby Tennis Centre. See the Mini Tennis Pages for more information.

Junior members are welcome to join in social tennis with adults. If juniors wish to play with other juniors then they must give way to adults if there is a shortage of courts.

There is organised junior match play on Wednesday evenings 5:30pm to 7:00pm.

On Tuesday and Thursday afternoons during school holiday periods, tournaments are held with free entry to Centre members.

Grimsby Tennis Centre supports the Humber Youth Games team and members of the centre have played their part in the success of the team. Adam Wrightham, a coach at the Centre, organises the team that represents North East Lincolnshire.

 

Disabled Players

The facilities at Grimsby Tennis Centre allow full participation by disabled people in the game. Rob Lingard specialises in coaching the disabled. Wheelchair tennis is specially catered for on the acrylic courts at the Centre.

Etiquette

There are many unwritten rules that are expected behaviour on a tennis court and in a tennis match. You may find some of them challenge your attitudes - but if you adhere to them, you will enjoy the game even more. Check them out here.
