Tennis Virgins Quiz FULL
All places now reserved for the quiz
How We Play
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.
A massive thanks to Pauline McCluskey!
Pauline has been the voluntary coordinator for BLAGSS Tenis Virgins for several years now...She has done a wonderful job, being welcoming, efficient, encouraging and reliable....Tennis Virgins is a really great way to learn tennis from scratch, pick it up again if it's been a while since you've played, learn some new techniques and practice what you've learned from our excellent coach Fuzzy.
BLAGSS Tennis Virgins was such a great place for me to play some tennis, meet new friends and settle in to Brighton life that I have agreed to take over from Pauline as the volunteer coordinator.
In the meantime, a really massive thanks to Pauline for all the work and enthusiasm she has put into Tennis Virgins....and I look forward to seeing both her and Donna on the courts.
