Junior Term Time Tennis

Overview

We run successful term time squads for players of all ability and ages throughout the year.

To help make each squad as beneficial as possible, we ensure that every player is working towards setting goals in a fun, patient and structured environment. 

Everyone who takes tennis lessons at Hartswood Tennis Club must be either a Hartswood member or a LOVETennis member:
  • The low cost LOVETennis annual membership allows players to take lessons at a private tennis club without becoming a full Hartswood Tennis Club member. Memberships are annual and run April 1 to March 31. 

  • A full Hartswood annual membership gives players access to all the facilities of the Club and also a 10% discount off all LOVETennis group lessons. Hartswood members should email  info@love-tennis.co.uk to get their discount code for use when booking group lessons.
