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! Our suggestion is to pre-order lunch from the on site cafe (on arrival), so your lunch will be ready as soon as you walk off the court. The cafe has a fantastic selection which caters for all dietary requirements.
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.
Yes, as a Tennis Clinic attendee the parking is free, you will need a code from reception to exit the car park.
Lunch at our tennis clinic is not included, however we have 2 options for you to choose from:
1. Pre-Order – You can pre-order food on arrival so it’s ready for our break in the middle of the sessions. You’ll need to make a selection on arrival, pay at the desk and then inform the team the time you’d like the food ready for.
2. Bring your own food – You are able to bring your own food to DL Northwood, however this must be eaten in the bubble and cannot be eaten in the club room.
