Welcome to the LATEST programme at Shenley Brook End School!

The exciting programme delivers more opportunities, excellent coach to player ratios and longer courses for increased development. Our objective is to ‘inspire tennis excellence’ and what ever level of tennis you aspire to play at, there is a course available for you. All coaches are DBS checked, insured, hold a first aid certificate and are qualified to the required standards set by the Lawn Tennis Association.

We have devised a progressive and exciting format for all our sessions that will enhance every player’s game. The programme has been devised by John Cavill, the Director of Tennis for Tennis Works. John has been coaching at all levels for the past 23 years in the UK and abroad. The knowledge and experience John has gained is reflected in the programme structure that has had outstanding results within other tennis centres.

PROFESSIONAL PROGRAMME - Progressive weekly structure

INDOOR & OUTSIDE SESSIONS - We have 4 indoor mini tennis courts used in the Winter and 4 outside hard courts, so whatever your level, the extensive programme offers many opportunities to get coaching with Tennis Works all year round.

LONGER COURSES - We run all our courses in line with the school term so we can maximise the number of weeks people can learn.

EXCELLENT STAFF RATIOS - To ensure the quality of the session is high, every session has the appropriate player to coach ratio for the age and ability group they are dealing with.

Autumn Development Programme Sessions

Autumn 2019 Programme at Shenley Brook End School

 Once the programme starts, prices are adjusted weekly to reflect the number of weeks remaining through to the Christmas break.

Mini Tennis

The Mini Tennis programme combined with our awards scheme, helps players progress through achievable targets that are rewarded when completed. Our Mini Tennis Red programme helps children aged 4 to 7 years old to learn the fundamentals for tennis, including coordination, balance, agility, receptive skills and more in a fun environment. As the players improve on these skills they will be able to progress to the next stage for 8 to 10 year olds, which is our Mini Tennis Orange programme. This is played on a ¾ length court with low compression balls and in these sessions the players will continue to improve their physical skills while starting to develop their tactical and technical aspects.

Junior Tennis at Stony Stratford Tennis Club

All 11 to 17 year olds can join our Junior Programme that will eventually help them make the transition into adult tennis. We feel it is very important to get players to understand the game requirements so that they can play as soon as possible. Our entry level to tennis are the Foundation sessions which are designed to help players develop basic techniques and tactics so they can enjoy playing the game. As they progress, the Intermediate sessions offer more opportunity for those players wishing to compete at a social / recreational level.

Adult Tennis at Stony Stratford Tennis Club

Unfortunately we are not able to provide Adult coaching at Shenley Brook End but we have a thriving programme running at Stony Stratford Tennis Club. For all beginner adults or those who play at a low recreation level, we have our very popular Foundation course. The aim of this session is to get people playing the game as fast as possible. This is a wonderful social sport and many people are put off if they think they are not good enough. Everyone can play tennis and the exercises, drills, techniques and progressions ensures that everyone has fun, enjoys learning and improves at the same time. For those adults wishing to build on their basic level, we have an Intermediate session which is aimed to take players into a social competitive environment that improves their matchplay for adult club sessions or lower team level.
