Our head coach is the amazing Kerris Weatherley, who leads a great team. They provide various coaching options:

Adult Improver course  |  Cardio tennis  |  Tots tennis  |  Junior coaching  |  Club member coaching sessions  |  Private coaching


Adult Improver Course

The club usually runs one or two Improver courses a year, starting in April and September, at a cost of £120. These are group coaching courses designed to getting beginners or players who are a little rusty up to social tennis standards. These courses are a great success and many full members start with the club on these courses.

The course includes :

  • 10 weekly one-hour coaching lessons followed by practice time
  • 6 months membership of club
  • use of club facilities with specified practice times and the opportunity to book free courts

At the end of the six month Improver membership, if a general standard of play has been reached, there is the opportunity to upgrade to full membership and enjoy all the benefits the club can offer.

During the Covid lockdowns the Improver course had a boom in popularity and we became inundated with requests to join. The result is that there’s currently a lengthy waiting list and unfortunately new applicants now are unlikely to get on to either of the 2022 courses. If you would like to be added to the waiting list nonetheless, please email bctcmembers@gmail.com.

Cardio Tennis

Cardio tennis is a high-energy fitness activity that blends tennis with cardiovascular exercise – get fit, have fun.

£20 for 5 weeks or £4.50 per session. £36 one adult and one tot.

For Cardio please contact Kerris Weatherley.

Tots Tennis

Suitable for children 3 – 5 years. This is an introduction to the very basics involved with tennis, aiming to help develop co-ordination, balance and agility, with a little focus on some of the more technical tennis skills.

£20 for 5 weeks or £4.50 per session.

For more information contact Kerris Weatherley .

Junior Coaching

We have a thriving junior section with over 100 children, most of whom attend coaching sessions throughout the week. Even though we focus on skill and technical development of every child, we try to base most of the learning on fun and enjoyment, without the pressures that sport can cause. Our main aim is for children to enjoy tennis into adulthood.

In addition to these term-time sessions, Kerris organises courses during Easter and Summer holidays.

For more information on junior membership, coaching sessions and holiday courses, see the Juniors page, follow this link to Kerris’ junior coaching website Absolute Tennis Bristol, or contact Kerris Weatherley directly.

Club coaching

Members can arrange their own group coaching as required. Occasional free cardio or doubles coaching is offered by the club; advertised by email, on the website or on the noticeboards.

Private coaching

Private coaching can be booked through Kerris Weatherley.
