Cardio is on every Thursday (subject to weather and numbers attending) at 7:30pm til 8:30pm for £5 per person. Please check with our coach Wendy to confirm attendance. Cardio Tennis involves a lot of running about and aims to keep players fit and nimble – so all playing ability suited!

To celebrate the start of the squash season and the completion of the tennis season, we are having a squash & tennis Fun Day at the Dean Club. Join the club for an afternoon of squash, tennis and BBQ from 2pm!
Squash: We will be running a handicap squash tournament and racquetball taster sessions.
Tennis: We will be running a tennis tournament where you play with different partners every 15 minutes to try and win the most number of games: we will have prizes! This tournament is fun for all levels of tennis, and because you keep swapping partners you will play a wide range of people and abilities. So whether you are a complete beginner or play regularly, come play the mini tournament!
We would be grateful if you could sign up to the event so we know roughly how much BBQ food to provide, and how many will take part in the day’s events! Please send any questions to Sarah at email@example.com.
