The Pocklington Tennis Academy runs a variety of tennis lessons and coaching sessions headed up by our resident LTA Approved Tennis Coach, Sean Evans.

Whatever your age and whatever your level of ability (even if you have never picked up a racquet before), we will have a coaching session for you.

Our full, comprehensive coaching timetable has begun or, alternatively, you can book a private coaching session – full details below.

Adult Sessions


Through a variety of drills, players will get the chance to practice every shot and improve their game. Players will receive technical and tactical advice, which can then be implemented in various game situations.

Beginners/ Rusty Raquets

This session is for players who are new to the game, or have been out of the game for a while and wanting to get back into it. Technical advice will be given to players, to enable them to improve their confidence when hitting the ball. It is hoped that players attending the ‘Beginners’ session will aim towards the ‘Drills’ or Adult Club Night sessions where they can progress their tennis skills further.

Cardio Tennis

Combines the game of tennis with a workout. Using high-energy drills and situations, players will enjoy this extremely fun and inclusive sport. Music helps to keep players motivated and energised. Song requests are accepted! Age or ability does not matter, it’s about enjoying tennis whilst burning some calories!

Doubles Tactics

This gives players the chance to brush up their doubles game before and during the season. By setting up specific doubles situations, players will learn different ways to beat their opponents using the tactics they have acquired. They will then have the chance to put these tactics into practice through match-play.

Private Lessons

Private lessons are very important in player development. They help to speed up the rate of improvement and build strong foundations to develop from, even as a one off to get things going in the right direction.
