Club Night and Team Practice

 

Victoria Park holds three regular club sessions which take place all year round (English Weather Permitting!) Social sessions are held on Tuesday and Thursday from 6pm and Saturday afternoons, followed by tea and cakes. These are doubles sessions open to adult players of all abilities. We encourage new members, or those that are interested in joining, to attend these sessions first. There is no pressure and you will get to play with a variety of players of all ages, abilities and personalities! The emphasis is to mix in and have fun, practice your shots and enjoy your tennis!

Monday nights are team practice nights and are typically attended by players who are involved in playing League Tennis. Again, the games are primarily doubles matches, but the emphasis is more on team practice and offers players a chance to hit together before playing league matches. These sessions typically begin at 6pm.
