Kirkhill Lawn Tennis Club

The Family Tennis Club

Coaching Programme 2017

At Kirkhill we have a strong reliable coaching programme for juniors and adults year round.  Clay courts are an ideal surface for learning on as the ball bounces higher and runs through much slower than synthetic courts which means that the player has more time to prepare to hit the ball.  This extra time allows the formation of good technique early on in the learning process and makes for great tennis players. 


We move to our all weather floodlit court exclusively over the winter months and use our clubhouse for indoor tennis for junior members.


We are building the tennis players of the future and have started up the club championship again after a number of years absence at the club.  This is encouraging our coaching groups to practice and compete for the title of champion within the club.

Stuart Clark is our level 5 coach, one of only a handful in Scotland, and with over 25 years of coaching experience.  He is great with all ages and has a great reputation as both a coach and a player.  He has a wealth of experience of all aspects of the sport and has represented the West of Scotland County team at junior, senior and vets levels as well as being part of the winning Premier Division and Scottish Cup teams of 2015.

Individual Personal Lessons

Stuart can offer one-to-one or group lessons to suit your timetable if you want to examine some aspects of your technique, improve your fitness levels or get some advice from top player in the game.  Stuart provides these lessons at a cost of £20 for 30 mins of £30 for one hour.   


Why not book a gift for friend or relative with a gift voucher for a lesson with Stuart to get someone started in tennis.  Vouchers are available on request.


Please contact Stuart on 07796696238 or [email protected] for more information on coaching.

Tennis Classes

Tennis classes are entrance level tennis and improver groups.  They focus on agility, co-ordination and athletic skills for tennis progression in a fun environment.  Groups use different coloured de-pressurised balls which make learning easier for younger players.  Children enjoy games and tennis drills in an informal learning environment which makes learning tennis and the rules of the game easier and more fun.

Tennis Tuesday are new for this season at Kirkhill aimed at ladies returning to tennis.  Please pre-book onto these sessions weekly at £7 per week to non-members (£5 to members) on https://clubspark.lta.org.uk/KirkhillLTC/Coaching.

Our classes are very popular and some have waiting lists but don't be put off and please let us know if you are interested in coming along as we will do our best to accommodate where we can and we will start new classes where demand is required.


Please contact us if your you or your child would like to try out the coaching groups before committing to a block of classes on 07796696238 or by contacting us on the form below...

Tennis For Kids

This year we are offering the Tennis For Kids programme from the Lawn Tennis Association.  Free 6 weeks coaching with an experienced and qualified coach. 


This programme is designed to provide:-

  • A free 6 week course with a qualified coach
  • A free racket to use during the course and keep forever if you attend regularly
  • An opportunity for parents to get involved
  • An opportunity to keep playing at the venue after the course

  • This programme is aimed at children 5 to 8 years and this year we are offering the session to P4 children primarily to allow us to build a team for a regional tennis competition between the primary schools which occurs in Spring.  We have already run this programme in Cairns Primary with 9 children who enjoyed a free block of coaching and received their lovely new racquets to keep them playing.


    To sign up your child for the free afterschool sessions at St Brides Primary School in Cambuslang click here.  This session will run at the tennis club on a Tuesday night from 3 till 4 pm.


    To sign up your child for the free afterschool session at Westcoates Primary School in Cambuslang click here.  This session will run within the school premises on a Thursday night from 3 till 4 pm.

    Tournaments

    To encourage competitive play amongst those members who are keen to do so we are running Team Challenge events to encourage groups of players to compete in a social way.  These can be in the different formats with differing age groups and aim to get players practicing and competing more regularly within the club and against players from neighbouring clubs.
