FAQs (Frequently Asked Questions)

  • Do you operate indoor or outdoor?


  • What happens if it rains?

In case of rain we have a very specific cancellation policy which can be found in our Terms and Conditions at the bottom of the homepage and just before you buy one of our courses.

  • Do you provide a racket?

All of our kids have their own racket but we keep a limited number of rackets to lend to those who have not bought one yet. We strongly advise all parents to invest in a personal junior tennis racket (they are as cheap as £20). We also keep a small stock of beginners rackets for sale. If you go to a shop we suggest you go to Euro Sports on Finchley Road. The best junior tennis rackets are made from 100% graphite (as opposed to aluminium) as they are lighter, more powerful and easier to use. 

  • How many kids in a class?

The right question is actually 'how many kids per coach'? Each age group requires a different COACH:KIDS ratio. This depends on children's attention span. For example, the 3 and 4 year old have very short attention span and therefore need very low coach:kids ratio so we make sure we are always under a 1:4 ratio. For all other group ages our maximum is 1:6 which is quite rare. Bear in mind that for activities such as warm ups matches and games we might join all the kids together to enjoy some team spirit and allow coaches to divide the groups properly.

  • Can I have a trial?

Of course! You don't have to commit to a whole term without trying it first. Give us a call or drop us an email to arrange for a trial and we will only charge you for that lesson. Once you have seen that your child enjoyed it, you can simply pay the balance for the term.

  • What shall we wear?

The most important thing is TENNIS SHOES/TRAINERS (no school shoes, no sandals, no football boots). Wear also comfortable sports clothing (no jeans) of any colour. In the summer month we suggest to bring a cap and always bring a waterproof (just in case).
