Looking for a new and fun way to work out?
We hold two cardio tennis sessions a week at the Club on Thursday and Saturday mornings.
Gentle Cardio is available on Thursday mornings with Jennifer Barron from 10am until 11am. Jennifer is a Level 4 Accredited LTA coach who has worked across many clubs in the North-East and Yorkshire. Jennifer has lots of experience working with juniors and adults, and has been involved with disability tennis for 4 years leading many of their initiatives.
On Saturday mornings there are very popular energetic cardio tennis sessions with Nic Weschenfelder from 9am until 11 am. Cardio Tennis is fun and sociable group fitness class set to music on our courts. A workout suitable for all ages and abilities and is for anyone who wants to get fit and have a go at tennis. The class moves along quickly, so no one will be judging your skills, and it doesn’t matter whether the ball goes in or out. Do I need to be fit? – No! Cardio Tennis is for anyone who wants to have fun getting fit.
Our Instructor, Nic Weschenfelder, will have you hitting lots of tennis balls during your class and you’ll have a great cardio workout at the same time!
What should I expect from Cardio tennis?
- Warm up – stretching, skills and drills to get your body warm
- Aerobic section – forehands, backhands, serves and volleys all mixed with a variety of fitness activities
- Tennis section – fun tennis games with team mates
- Cool down – time to recover and stretch
Do I need to be a Member?
No, Nic provides classes on a pay and play basis. But we hope you will get a taste for tennis and join and we have coaches if you want to learn more and increase your enjoyment and skills.
What else do I need to know?
Bring along your own racket if you have one, if not don’t worry as you can borrow one from the Club. Wear comfortable gym kit and non-marking tennis shoes. You’ll be working up a sweat, so don’t forget to bring a water bottle too! Take the empty bottle home with you as we don’t have a recycling collection.
