Here at Hazelwood, I run Coach & Play sessions for both beginners and intermediate players. Beginner players quickly learn the game of tennis; being able to serve, rally and score learning through play which is the most enjoyable way to learn. For intermediate players, sessions are structured into, technical, tactical and competitive play. Each quarter we run a round-robin Super tie-break tens event. Everyone partners everyone once and points are awarded for a win, a loss and for every point won. Its great fun. If you want further details or to sign-up for a course, click the button below.


Team Challenge is mini tennis and junior inter-club team-based matches that consist of both doubles and singles. Teams do not exclusively consist of players from the respective clubs but can include non-members and players from other clubs. The doubles fast4 format allows for each player on a team to partner and play with everyone on their team, and singles play is usually 10 point tiebreaks. A points factor means that points are accumulated for every fast4 game won and points won in tiebreaks. At the end of a season, overall winners of the series are announced along with a player’s contributions. If you would like your player to participate then click the sign-up button to register their details and I will be in contact to invite them to a suitable event.

Latest COVID news

UPDATE: Tier 4 Restrictions

The Government announced on 19 December that new Tier 4 restrictions were to be introduced in parts of England from that evening. Based on the LTA’s discussions with DCMS to get confirmation of exactly what this means for tennis we can confirm the following for Tier 4 areas:

  • Indoor courts, gyms and sports facilities will need to close
  • Outdoor tennis courts can remain open for individual exercise, and for people to use with others within your household, support bubble, or with one person from another household. One-to-one coaching outdoors is therefore also permitted
  • Organised outdoor sport for under 18s and disabled people will be allowed to continue in larger numbers

In, terms of elite tennis, the Government has confirmed that elite sport can continue in line with the strict protocols and measures that are in place for it, as it did during the previous lockdown. Events such as the scheduled ‘Battle of the Brits Premier League of Tennis’ are therefore able to continue as previously announced.

We have now updated the summary grid of tennis activity by tier to reflect the above information and cover Tier 4This grid has since been further updated to include confirmation that toilets are able to open in Tier 4 areas, as well as the inclusion of additional detail covering coach education. The full LTA Covid-19 Secure guidance documents have now also been updated (29 December) to reflect the Tier 4 restrictions outlined in the summary grid.

The full list of which areas are in which tier is provided on the Government website, and you can also use the postcode checker via the link below.
