Lawn Tennis

How do I play? 

  • The aim of the game is pretty simple; hit a tennis ball over the net, making sure to keep it inside the designated lines.
  • If your opponent fails to return the ball back over the net to you, you win the point. You can play with two people (one-on-one), or with four (two-on-two) on different surfaces, including grass, hard court, carpet and clay.

The benefits of tennis 

  • The simple pleasure of hitting a ball over a net is not to be underestimated. It is a sociable and fun way to get fit, with many different adaptations to suit people of all ages and abilities.
  • Tennis can be adapted for any level of ability, as well as for players with different disabilities.
  • Children aged 3-10 have the option to play Mini Tennis, with smaller courts, nets and racquets and lower-bouncing balls.

  • There are lots of opportunities to play tennis with over 20,000 tennis courts across the UK. Most clubs and park courts will provide you with racquets and balls.
  • Take part in one of the many events taking place throughout the year, with sessions suitable for the whole family.
