The coach will reschedule sessions or ask you to attend another session on the coaching programme to recoup the lost session.
Is there a pay and play option available?
Sorry, we don't offer a pay as you play option for our main Weekly Programme. Players can join the programme by subscribing to a Coaching Plan. This helps us keep our administration costs down which keeps the costs to players at an affordable level.
At times throughout the year we run Special Courses which can offer pay and play/short course options, these events are in partnership with the LTA and not consistent across the year.
We strongly believe that regular attendance on the programme helps maintain the session suitability for the players alongside supporting players improve with groups of players of similar tennis standards.
