What we believe

Tennis for Everyone

The priority of Tennis Tigers is to make tennis accessible to all children and to give them the basic skills to play tennis.

There are no barriers with regards to age, ability or disability.

Your child is supported to play in a way they enjoy. It is about enjoying the game and uncovering their potential without pressure.

Experience Matters

Tennis Tigers has been running highly successful after school clubs since 2001. We are experts in delivering innovative tennis programmes to the younger age group starting 4 years+. Our experience is what sets us apart from other sports clubs.

We use the latest training techniques so they have fun on the court.

Our Proudest Claim

All the children on our programme have gained key skills; confidence, balance, coordination, speed & agility and concentration. This attitude is duplicated in our weekly hour long sessions.

Our programme teaches around 500 children every year to play tennis.  We have produced both county champions and tournament winners. 

The best way to make children good is to make them happy.

Oscar Wilde, author and poet

It's more than just tennis


No matter what their ability, they gain confidence and belief in their abilities, while having fun with their coach and other players


It's not just about hitting the ball, it's about thinking and planning their shots. This style of critical thinking helps them off the court too.


The clubs are a perfect place to make lasting friendships. It's not about being a tennis champion, it's about having fun and enjoying the game.

Watch your child having fun on the court today Today!

    Tennis Tigers grew from founders  Vanessa Nickerson & Dan Travis'  love of the game. 

     "It's a privilege to see children fall in love with the game and grow and become more confident in themselves." 

    Vanessa and Dan are competitive tennis players in both singles and doubles who love playing and watching the game. “We feel so lucky to have combined business with a great passion. We love to see children & adults getting out there and having a great time on court. Tennis is a game for everyone and once you learn a few basics, it’s for life”.

    They say

    A fantastic set up. My son has been going to the after school club and holiday camps for the last three years and continues to enjoy and improve his skills not only in tennis but other sporting areas. The team are lovely, professional, personable and great with the kids. Would highly recommend.



    My son loves this club, he's been going for over a year and continues to grow in confidence, which carries over into his attitude to other things too.

    He talks about the coaches alot and I love the positivity that comes out of every session.
