Still feeling a little apprehensive about giving it a go?

We really do understand that it can feel a bit daunting signing up to something new.  However, read Cheryl’s story below as she felt exactly the same way – she now loves tennis and it is one of the best things that she ever did.

There is also no commitment to continue playing after you have finished the course, but we really hope you will love it as much as Cheryl.

When and where?

These great sessions will be taking place at Helsby Tennis Club on Tuesdays at 6.30-7.30pm. The course officially started on the 20th October, but you can join whenever you want and you will receive 6 coaching lessons.



  • Over three years ago, I attended a tennis beginners session at Helsby tennis club, run by their coach Mike Herd. At the age of 48 and having not played any tennis since the age of 15, I was a little apprehensive to say the least! However, I was surprised to find how enjoyable the coaching sessions were.
    Mike is very approachable, patient, encouraging individuals of all ages, abilities and fitness levels, to become the best player they can be. My overall fitness has improved significantly and together with a strict diet I have lost 4 stone in weight. Thanks to Mike’s coaching I have found a sport I really enjoy playing and still continue to improve in!
