What to Expect From Adult Tennis Coaching

With the sudden reappearance of the sun, and with it some unseasonably warm weather, many are dusting off their rackets in anticipation of the tennis season.

At Surrey Sports Park, we run a series of adult tennis coaching courses for beginners and improvers to help you get into the swing of things ahead of the summer.

Whether you’ve always wanted to learn to play or just need help with those pesky backhands, our experienced coaches will guide you every step of the way!

We hit the court with our Director of Tennis, Nick Ingham, who outlined what you can expect from each course.


Who is the course for?

This group is for adults who are new to the game or haven’t played for a period of time.

What can participants expect?

This course covers all the basic strokes of tennis, working on the technique and drills to incorporate them. Participants will also go through the basic rules and tactics of the game.

What could participants achieve by attending the course?

By the end of the course, all those who attend should have an understanding of the technique of forehands, backhands, volleys, serves and smashes, and be able to play a competitive game.

What will participants take away from the course?

The course will aim to teach all participants how to get their shots into the court on a regular basis, rally and have the ability to place their shots. They will learn how to score in a match situation and where they should position themselves on the court.


Who is the course for?

The Improvers course is for adults who play on a regular basis, or who have become too advanced for the beginner’s course.

What can participants expect?

Each week will focus on a specific stroke, using drills to improve the consistency and placement of that stroke.

What could participants achieve by attending the course?

The aim of the course is not only to add more consistency to the players game but to add different aspects to it by using different techniques and tactics.

What will participants take away from the course?

The course will aim to add more to each players game. Emphasis will be on adding more variety to the strokes by implementing spin and concentrating on the tactical side of the game, as well as exploiting opponents’ weaknesses and utilising each players strengths.

Guest Notice – Face Coverings

From Saturday 19th September, it will be essential for every person in Surrey Sports Park’s communal areas to wear a face covering. This is in-line with the campus-wide policy introduced by the University of Surrey.

The policy does not apply whilst taking part in sport and exercise and activity areas are exempt.

The University considers that the responsibility of wearing a face covering sits with individuals and we expect all our staff, students and public to adhere to this requirement where possible.

Please be mindful and respectful towards members of our community who, due to exceptional circumstances, may be unable to wear a face covering; their reasons may not be visible to others.

Thank you,

Surrey Sports Park
