Tennis Virgins

We play every WEDNESDAY starting at 8:30pm until 9.30pm, It is a perfect place for people who have not played tennis in a while or for those who do not feel they have the skills or confidence necessary to join the BLAGSS Tennis group.


Our goal is to provide basic instruction and coaching to help players get to a level where they can confidently participate in the regular group or play on a club level (e.g. understanding of the game and ability to hit the ball over the net and serve properly). We play a mixture of drills/games both singles and doubles, depending on how many attend.

Coaching is provided by a professional tennis coach.

We welcome new members of any experience including beginners. 


Preston Park Tennis Club, The Drove, Preston Park. Car parking is available on site for a limited number of cars. Free on-street parking is available after 8pm.


Sessions cost £5 or £6 depending on how many players attend. Your first session is free, after which you must join BLAGSS in order to play again

If you are a BLAGSS member, please log in for details and to register your interest in the next session.

If you are not a member, please email for more information.


As well as the weekly session every Wednesday, we have a number of 'one-off' events throughout the year including:

Summer and Winter Doubles competitions.

'Rusty Rackets' sessions - a programme of 3 or 4 weeks of focussed coaching for new or 'rusty' players.

​Watch this space for details of these events.
