From early July 2017, Attenborough Tennis Club will have a new coach, Saul Abbiss.

Saul is a product of the Jan Burnett coaching programme and has been a member of the club for most of his life!

Having just completed his degree at Leeds, Saul will take over and build on the programme developed by On The Ball. Chris and his team have done a good job over the past 5 or so years for which we thank them.

With a locally based coach, however, we should be able to provide some exciting new opportunities for children and adults, both beginners and experienced players; already Cardio tennis is in the programme.

Watch this space for more details. Saul will also be running summer tennis camps this summer (details below) and offers a racket restringing service.


In regards to the timetable from September, see below the provisional timetable. Please note that, due to computer issues, the chart shows that the Junior Development session ends at 1pm. However this will actually end at 1:30pm. The same issue means that the chart shows the Sunday Junior Club Morning running from 9am to 11am, but this will actually be from 9 to 10.30am, as normal.

All 1hr sessions will be £5 per hour for non-members and £4 per hour for members, which will be booked per half term. Junior Development (1.5hrs) will be £6 for non-members £5 for members. Adult beginners will be £8 and £6 for members.

It is hoped that that the adult coaching on Saturdays, that runs alongside the junior programme, will continue but this depends on coach availability. It’s hoped to resolve this very soon. Saul is also looking at offering adult cardio tennis sessions.
