What is Tennis Northampton?

Tennis Northampton is a joint project between Northampton Leisure Trust, Premier Tennis, Northampton Borough Council and the Lawn Tennis Association (LTA). The aim is to encourage local residents to try tennis, by making court and coaching bookings as accessible and affordable as possible.

Coaching is just £5 a session for ALL AGES! - This is done on a pay and play basis, so you only pay for sessions which you can attend. We will provide all the equipment for the classes (feel free to bring your own racket if you have one though)

Coaching sessions for all ages and skill levels will also be take place during the week, with more sessions being added every month. The subsidised cost makes it one of the most affordable ways to play and discover the sport.

What part can I play?

Firstly - grab a racket and head down to your nearest tennis court (but remember to book a court online first, of course)! This project is for you, and many of the sessions are free or very low cost. Have a go, and see what you make of tennis.

Secondly - we would love to hear from you! The goal is to help people discover and enjoy tennis by making it easy to learn and improve on your local courts. So if you have any suggestions, comments or questions at all, we would love to hear from you. Use the form below to get in touch:
