Our Doubles Tennis Clinics are perfect for anyone wanting to improve their Doubles. We’ve curated a fun packed 5 hours of fast paced coaching to make you a more confident and competent Doubles player.
Please note our itineraries are all subject to change.
Your host & team of coaches will be waiting for you in the club lounge. Please feel free to arrive earlier if you’d like to join them for a coffee.
The coaches will be assessing your playing level, we try to ensure everyone has an opportunity to ‘Play Up’ & ‘Play Down.’
Please speak to your host if you feel you are being over/under challenged at any point. We operate on a 1 Coach: 6 Players: 1 Court basis.
30 minutes of Rally Skills, looking at how good your rally quality is from the back of the court and some effective tips on how we can contact more balls in with an excellent contact point.
There’s nothing more pesky than someone dropping a weak 2nd serve over the net and being super awkward to deal with! In this session we look at how we can attack this second serve and ‘build a wall’ as a returning team.
Ever played someone with a great 1st serve? We teach you the basics of dealing with that faster serve. We also look at the reverse – what happens if your partner has a great serve – how can you make the most of this?
As the returners partner, you have to be super sharp! You’ve got to make quick decisions and move to certain positions on the court. We look at the ‘X’ drill – which is based around which position you move to depending on what return is hit.
It’s lunch time! At David Lloyd Milton Keynes we are unable to pre-order food, so our suggestion is to grab some food from the Deli.
Bring your post lunch coffee with you on court to watch your coaches in action for 15 minutes! Discover what the ‘volley pressure gauge’ is and the different feelings you can have on a volley.
We’ve all experienced that feeling of missing an easy volley! Well this session is all about ‘going and getting’ that volley. You’ll be putting those volleys away with precision not power at the end of this session.
Ever experienced someone hit a ball hard at you as a volleyer? Well we have some great ways to counteract that – including the fact that the best volleyers do nothing! Next time someone hits a ball hard at you, you’ll have no problem handling it!
What are the key positions as a volleyer in Doubles? What does DNA mean? We’ll help you feel super confident as a volleyer in doubles and not get ‘lost’! Once you move to those positions, we’ll then look at the decisions you make as a volleyer.
At the end of the clinic we will take a quick group picture which will be shared on social media (please feel free to Opt-Out). It’s a lovely way to remember your day(s).
After the clinic you’ll receive an email with all of the ‘key takeaways’ from the day.
We tend to use the indoor carpet courts, these can get quite cold in the winter and quite warm in the summer – so please dress accordingly.
