Not every player wants or needs a coach. Many adults have fun playing the game of tennis without too many thoughts about what they are doing or the rules that they keep. Tennis coaching really helps to give players some professional guidance to get the most out of their ability or games that they play.
All players in the WPTA program can find their correct level by speaking to one of our coaches and being given a level of play. Our levels offer 5 stages of development to help players progress.
1. Beginner - learning the game for the first time or players with little existing experience
2. Improver - basic understanding of how to play, some existing experience on the court
3. Development - able to rally with some confidence, score games and serve with some variety
4. Intermediate - able to play with strategy, comfortable in serving and returning situations
5. Advanced - possess good all round skills, play with variations and increase of speed, confident on court
WPTA has classes that can be booked that relate to these levels and descriptions from Autumn 2021. Please look out for our class bookings on the Live Love Sport App where weekly sessions and courses have numbers relating to the targeted level of play.
