Tennis Virgins

We play every Wednesday evening starting at 8:00pm until 9.00pm at Preston Park Tennis Club. 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.

Coaching is provided by Sam, who is a professional tennis coach based at Preston Park Tennis Club. 

 

We welcome new members of any experience including beginners.

Hi there Tennis Virgins,

This is always a really fun event - with players of every ability, fitness and skill level very welcome. 

We will meet in Preston Park Tennis Club clubhouse from 7.30pm, then play from 8pm - 9pm with our coach Sam sorting out the players, the games and the points!

Rob from BLAGSS has kindly agreed to staff the bar at Preston Park Tennis Club for us to enjoy a drink or two after the tennis. 

We will be arranging to order pizza for anyone that wants one - and oh yes....points do mean prizes!... and there will be prizes for the tournament  winner ; runner up; most improved player; best shot of the night ....

As always, the evening will be really enjoyable and a cracking early start to the Christmas season 

I really hope to see you at the 6th November Tennis Virgins Tournament - please sign up below to register your interest - and I will be in touch with everyone who has registered later to sort out pizza orders!!!

The cost, as always, is FREE if this is your first time at Tennis Virgins - and for all us hardy repeat players it is £6 each. You will have to pay for your own pizzas!

Whether you have played alot this year, a little or not at all - everyone is welcome to come and join this event. Really welcome.

Rusty Rackets - 2019 players - congratulations!

The Rusty Rackets programme finished today, Sunday 31st March. It was great.

At least one participant had never played tennis before...others had played but 'a while back'...everyone wanted to be more confident in the basic skills, strokes, techniques, riules and etiquette of tennis. 

Over 3 wonderfully sunny Sunday mornings, our coach Sam took us thorugh all the basic elements of tennis and had us practicing so that by the time the 3rd Sunday came, we were all able to play in doubles and singles games.

Serving, returning, forehand, backhand, volleys and smashes all practiced and put into action...quite a bit of running about too!!!

It was great, and most of the Rusty Rackets players will now be joining Tennis Virgins on Wednesday evening.

It will be great to welcome new players to Tennis Virgins - and I am sure that they will enjoy the progression in tennis skills, and good company, that we have on our regular Wednesday evenings at Preston Park Tennis Club

Congratulations to all the Rusty Rackets players of 2019!  You were great.
