The Northumberland Club offers an unrivalled range of tennis courses and activities throughout the year to suit all abilities.

Tennis Xpress for the complete beginner 
Tennis Xpress is designed to promote tennis as an easy, fun and healthy sport and will ensure that your first experience of tennis is a positive one by serving, rallying and scoring from the first lesson. Tennis Xpress is an active and dynamic introduction for starter adult players and recommended by the International Tennis Federation as the best way to learn the game. Coached over a six week course, Tennis Xpress is centred on the use of slower Green balls (25% slower) and Orange balls (50% slower) to ensure that players quickly learn the rules of tennis, and the basic techniques and tactics of tennis, in an active way.


Beginners, Improvers and Advanced Courses 
Adult Tennis Development Programmes for beginners, improvers and advanced players are scheduled throughout the year.  During winter these courses are held indoors and from Easter onwards the programmes take place on our outdoor courts.


Daytime Mix in 
Daily group coaching sessions take place throughout the week on a 'turn up and play' basis encouraging social tennis. This is a great opportunity for all players to have some fun, meet new friends and to socialise.
See our Mix in sessions. 


Individual Coaching
Our team of enthusiastic tennis coaches can help everybody improve their game. Whether you are completely new to the game, wanting to learn the fundamentals or an experienced player, wanting to progress your game, our coaches are on hand to help you.  For further information take a look at our coaching team.
