Tennis Lessons At The Pocklington Tennis Academy

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.

Outside of the coaching programme, 4-16 year olds can take part in our Tennis Camps during school holidays. For children aged 4-11 who want to give tennis a go, there is the fantastic Tennis For Kids, which includes lessons, a racquet and more.

Adult Sessions

Intermediate / Advanced Drills

This session is for capable players, and is an opportunity to work on certain shots in certain situations. There will be the opportunity to focus in on technique as well as tactics. Certain shots will be looked at, coached, and then participants will have the opportunity to put what they have learned into open play situations.

Beginners / Improvers

This session is for players who are new or relatively 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 ‘Doubles Tactics’ 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 can be done on a 1-2-1 basis, or with a group of individuals who want to book a lesson in to work on specific things they feel will help their game. These lessons are booked at a time to suit you, and are the quickest way to improve technique and tactics.

Private lessons can be 30mins, 45mins or 1hr long. Prices start from just £15.
