Getting started with tennis

However you prefer to pick up the game, there’s a class, a lesson or a coach to suit you at David Lloyd Clubs. Once you've joined a Club, you'll be invited to a free Racquets Welcome where new members can meet our Racquets Manager and discover everything we offer.

Our Fast Track Tennis classes are a great starting point for anybody who is new to the game and keen to learn some simple tennis skills. You’ll learn to serve, volley and pick up the basics of forehand and backhand strokes over the course of 4 one-hour sessions. From here, you can progress to On Track Tennis, where longer sessions will give you the chance to take what you’ve learned in the beginner stage to the next level.

For something a little more fast-paced, give our Tennis Drills or Cardio Tennis sessions a try. Tennis Drills classes are available for players of various levels, and can help you to develop your skills and add shots to your repertoire while keeping you on the move. Cardio Tennis is fun and varied, with more focus on fitness than technique – ideal for players of any level.

Improve your game & make friends on court

Our group sessions are not only a great way to improve your technique, they’re also a brilliant opportunity to meet fellow members with a shared interest in tennis.

If you’re keen to find a class that merges elements of social tennis with teaching and game improvement, then you’ll love our Coaching & Matchplay sessions. These group classes for players of a similar standard will arm you with technical and tactical expertise, preparing you to go ahead and play matches of your own. If you’re unsure about which level of class you should sign up to, our club teams will be happy to help you find the class to suit your abilities.

Alternatively, if it’s structured matchplay that you enjoy, then make the most of our Club sessions, where you can meet and play with fellow members in a fun, social, organised environment. And for those who enjoy competition, we have Box leagues, Team Tennis and annual Club Championships to test your skills in a competitive environment.

Plus, don't miss out on a calendar of fun social events which will run throughout the year, including our popular Mistletoe & Wine events over the festive period.

Individual tennis coaching

If you prefer a more tailored approach to improving your tennis skills, our expert coaches also provide one-to-one tennis lessons.

All of our coaches are highly qualified and will work to tailor sessions to suit the needs of each individual. We are proud to have coaches who are warm, approachable and easy to work with, giving you every chance to get the most of every lesson you take part in.

They’ll work with you on specific aspects of your game, so whether you’re struggling to land that big first serve, confused about your grip or lacking confidence on your backhand, our coaches will help you to see fast results.

How to book a tennis class or coaching

Booking onto a tennis class is quick and easy, and can be done either online, via the app or in person at the club. Simply select your preferred class and book your place. Some of our classes are included in the price of your membership but if an additional fee applies for the class you have chosen, this will be flagged to you at the point of booking and you will be invited to make payment for the session.

For individual 1-2-1 lessons, these are organised with the coach and payment is made directly to the coach themselves. To find a coach who is the right fit for you and your game, you can view a profile of each of our tennis professionals in club, where you will be able to find contact details for your chosen coach to then organise your first session.
