Coaching on a Friday night for beginners at tennis club

BEVERLEY Park Tennis Club in Monkseaton has new coaching groups on Friday evenings.

‘Tennis for Teenagers’ is designed for complete beginners or teenagers who have only recently started to play.

The sessions start at 6pm.

At 7pm, there will be ‘Take Up Tennis’, a group for adults of all ages who want to begin playing tennis or who have little experience of the sport.

And there will also be the ladies coaching group at 1.30pm.

“These three groups are a great opportunity for people to start playing tennis, or to improve their skills,” said club chairman Jon Pope.

“Tennis is a sport for all ages, one which you can enjoy throughout your life, and we’re keen to welcome new players to Beverley Park.”

All groups will be coached by Steff Parker and will last for an hour.

The fee is £2.50 for club members and £3.50 for non-members.

New members are welcome to join the club, which gives the opportunity to use the courts free of charge.

Membership forms are available at the club, on the website at or from the secretary on (0191) 252 1598.
