Guidelines on playing standards

We welcome players of all standards, from absolute beginners onwards. You will always have a chance to play with people at their own level.

Advanced — from age 13/14, has played for school or club team or in tournaments.

Intermediate — from age 11, has had some coaching and is able to rally and play sets.

Lower intermediate — from age 9/10, has had some coaching but may benefit from revision of basics.

Beginner — from age 8, little or no previous tennis experience.
